By using multiple extraction techniques, PULP2VALUE will extend the high value products extracted from sugar beet sidestreams, isolating microcellulose fibres (MCF), arabinose (Ara) and galacturonic acid (GalA).

The project will demonstrate an integrated and cost-effective cascading bio-refinery system to refine sugar beet pulp and identify applications for approximately 65% of its mass in high value markets, increasing its current value by as much as 20-50 times.
