The NewFoss biorefining process is also suited for the extraction of high value components from various crops. The following applications are still under development, although the stevia sweetener project is close to its commercialization:
- Stevia: a sustainable alternative to the conventional extraction process resulting in a traceable, natural, biological and truly tasty sweetener.
- Sorghum: biorefining of a versatile crop into various valuable products.
- Sugarbeet: extraction of sugar via a sustainable, medium scale flexible process as alternative to the current energy intensive sugar production.
In addition NewFoss researches the valorization of the components present in the grass juice, the side product with fiber production. These minerals, sugars, salts and acids can be used as raw material for for example the production of high value plant based fertilizer, bioplastics and de-icing agent.
