R&D in the Food Industry and Health
CONTACTICA’s team realises the effect that nutrition habits have on human health, especially the prevention of different diseases such as cardiovascular ones. This leads us to the development of healthier food products and
functional ingredients. Concerning the food industry, one of the main interests is the development of innovative technologies to make processes more efficient and sustainable.
CONTACTICA has taken part in different stages (such as management of the consortium, applying for funding, execution, justification and technical assistance) of projects in the following areas:
» Food industry: development of innovative processes, improved treatment methods and distribution of products, new markets for the valorisation of by-products.
» Health: Effect of nutrition habits and diseases, production of functional ingredients.
» Aging: disease prevention, especially those of cardiovascular nature.
R&D in Environment and Eco-Innovation
One of the main issues in industrial activities lies in the high volume of waste generated each year, with the associated economic and environmental impact they cause. Therefore, our team is committed to the valorisation of these
residues in situ to generate value-added products that can be commercially exploited.
CONTACTICA participates in the development of technologies for the treatment of contaminated air and water that are innovative and more environmentally friendly. In parallel,
CONTACTICA is involved in projects that focus on sustainability and energy efficiency..
The following projects have or have had with the active participation of CONTACTICA in submission to government agencies to search for funding, implementation and / or support:
» Environment: Development of technologies for the treatment of air or water contaminated with different pollutants. Soil remediation.
» Eco-Innovation: Development of new materials. Biorefinery processes. Valorisation of wastes for the development of new products. Improvement of the energy efficiency of processes and buildings. .
