One of the greatest technical challenges in the recovery of valuable plant materials is the predominantly heterogeneous nature of the starting materials. Currently, the production of recyclable materials from plant raw materials depending on the required purities is therefore very expensive and inefficient. In part, they are produced synthetically for this reason. It therefore requires an R & D project, which accelerates the product development of these valuable plant materials cost-effectively and with the highest quality standards, so that the products to be developed are free of non-food-safe solvents and therefore based on natural extraction and are much more environmentally friendly.
Based on the initial situation and problem definition presented, a first step will be bundling regionally available know-how by establishing a regional network for raw material suppliers, manufacturers and marketers. In the second step, the product development of valuable plant substances will be promoted through an R & D project. This should be done by extraction of plant raw materials from biogenic educts. The product development should aim at high-quality cosmetic and food products from plant recyclables of the Joglland.
Target groups include actors and stakeholders of cosmetic products and dietary supplements of the Joglland (producers, suppliers of raw materials, farmers, businesses, etc.). With this project references and experiences in the region “Kraftspendedörfer Joglland” should be collected. The exploitation rights of the R & D project are available to the general public free of charge.
