Gaia Tech has invented an innovative method to upcycle agricultural sidestreams into bio-compounds and added-value ingredients. Through its novel approach, Gaia tackles the ever-increasing trend to substitute synthetic compounds with natural alternatives in the cosmetics, food, and feed sector. At the same time, Gaia responds to the pressing needs of the primary sector to create new value streams and reduce its environmental footprint. Gaia Tech builds on the results from the EIT Food project Phenoliva and aims to commercialize a portfolio of value-added products derived from olive pomace (e.g. antioxidants, biochar, activated carbon, biogas) obtained through a technology that, differently from competitors' solutions, is cost-effective and highly scalable.
