IBERLACT and BM-Ingeniería technicians have visited the VASCOLAC facilities (Zamudio) where the whey concentration and biogas generation plants will be located. We hope that the necessary adjustments are carried out in the following months and that the pilot plants can start operating in trial mode by next June.
In the coming weeks, we will start developing laboratory scale prototypes of whey-based food products. AZTI-Tecnalia researchers met with several cheese-making dairies and collected opinions regarding what products they would want to elaborate in the future in order to define the ingredients and characteristics that these foods must have. In addition, other products similar to […]
