7th EU Starch Value Chain & Fermentation

July 07th 2024

Optimising starch full value chains in the EU.

The 7th EU Starch Value Chain & Fermentation covers a full value-chain approach discussing issues from innovations to achieve better yields , valorising of starch waste streams to the agility of starch biorefineries that produce a wide variety of ingredients serving all bioeconomy outlets, enabling the sector to be near zero-waste.

Proteins produced by the EU starch industry (eg cereal crop- maize, wheat, barley and rice), peas and starch potatoes are valuable components that will significantly contribute to the competitiveness of the EU starch industry.

In its continuous research effort to valorise the whole plant, the EU starch industry has developed outlets for plant based protein products and their Innovative functionalities.

In leveraging the full value chain of the starch industy, this year’s conference expands to discussions on fermentation – a critical process linked to the starch industry, especially in the production of various value-added products. Fermentation utilizes microorganisms such as bacteria, yeast, and fungi to convert carbohydrates (like starch) into other chemical compounds.

Ongoing research and development are crucial for advancing fermentation technologies, improving yields, and discovering new applications for starch-derived products.
The 7th EU Starch Value Chain & Fermentation is a must attend event and have been brought around the region to many European cities.

Supported by Starch Europe, the key highlights of the conference includes discussions on

  • A new European Parliament/Commission; implications for the EU starch industry
  • Value chain diversification for a corn ethanol biorefinery
  • Increasing the value of by-products from starch production
  • Value added ingredients from agri side streams
  • UPF – Ultra Processed Foods – Reacting, reflecting and responding to customers needs in the context of starch
  • Innovations in milling processes to make pulse starch resistant
  • New value chain and fermentation pathways for the EU starch industry
  • Chemicals from renewable raw materials and many more

Separately bookable site visit at the EMSLAND starch facility in Kyritz, Germany.
