Establish the technology and manufacturing foundations for high-value bioproducts from fisheries processing waste
In Coquimbo, Chile, which has a flourishing fishing industry, 14,000 tons of fisheries waste from Humboldt squid, shrimp and langoustine processing is thrown away every year; however, this fisheries waste contains a large amount of high-value bioproducts. To utilize these discarded bioproducts, we are studying the substances that comprise these biomaterials in detail and establishing processes for their purification and manufacture. We are also working toward the development and application of novel biomaterials synthesized from fine bioproducts.
Establish a localized circular economy on fishery resources in Chile
Progress is being made in the assessment and identification of high-value bioproducts in fisheries waste, the establishment of manufacturing processes for fine bioproducts, the development of novel biomaterials, and enhanced networking with those involved in the supply chain for fine bioproduct manufacture, and the recovery of fisheries waste is being promoted by the development of a localized circular economy in Chile.
