A new opportunity has arisen to produce new biomaterials from agro-industrial organic waste, within a circular economy and bio-based strategy. IRODDI is an ambitious initiative that proposes the development of new, greener processes to obtain bio-based products with specific properties/functionalities derived from the Free Fatty Acids (FFA) contained in deodorization distillates, by-products obtained in the refining processes of vegetable oils/fats. It consists in the development of new sustainable processes to produce new bio-based products with specific properties/functionalities using innovative technologies based on supercritical CO2 (scCO2) and to isolate valuable minor compounds in gentler and environmentally friendly operating conditions, preserving their original quality and developing gentler extraction technologies.
