In collaboration with our project partners, R&D have now finished the installation of the Grass Protein refinery and are now able to start initial testing.

As there have been some delays from multiple suppliers due to Covid-19, our skilled team have found alternative technical solutions for some areas of the refinery. This together with close cooperation with our worldwide suppliers, have made it possible to begin initial testing and later producing useful amount of grass protein in 2020. This also gives us the opportunity to optimise the drying process and plan the market- and product related circumstances. 

Types of tests

In light of the situation, we are very pleased that multiple standardise tests have already been made. Among many things, the testing includes I/O test, dry run test with larger machinery, simulation of the plant with water as the medium, CIP demonstration and optimising of the HMI. These tests are part a well-documeted test plan that ensures that the customer has evidence of the functionality of the sub-components. The tests have also provided us with data that are useful for analysis and crucial for the future optimisation of the plant and grass protein.

The tests have also provided us with data that are useful for analysis and crucial for the future optimisation of the plant and grass protein. We are very positive about the continuous process for the project.

The TailorGrass project is a GUDP funded project, which means it is supported by a subvention from ‘Grønt Udviklingsog Demonstrationsprogram'. This climate-friendly plant will be the first of its kind in Denmark and will increase cattle, pig and poultry producers’ climate footprint significantly. In collaboration with SEGES, Vestjyllands Andel and Ausumgaard, R&D have the opportunity to develop a plant that can extract protein from grass.
