Basic chemicals and carbon from old bakery products

Project start /

In Germany, up to 100,000 tonnes of old bakery products accumulate every year which are not suitable for human consumption or as animal fodder. Until now, their use has been primarily energetic, for example in combustion processes or in biogas plants. In this project, we are developing a process for the material recycling of regionally available old bakery products which will enable them to be used as a basis for the production of bioplastics for the chemical industry. A carbonaceous substance with an attractive calorific value is thereby generated as a by-product.
