The overall purpose of the OrganoFinery project is to provide solutions to these problems by developing a green biorefinery where the organic crops are at the same time used for animal feed, fertilizer and energy production (methane). One of the project´s aims is to identify crops suitable for organic arable farms that have a general need for nitrogen. Sufficient nitrogen supply is essential for the production of protein; therefore, legumes or mixed cropping with legumes are particularly interesting for organic farmers, since these crops fix nitrogen.
In the bio-refining method, freshly harvested red clover and clover grass are mechanically separated into a green juice and a press cake using a screw press. Organic protein feed is produced by lactic acid fermentation of the green juice.
Target groups are organic farmers, advisors, industry and scientists.

What problem does the tool address?:In order to achieve 100 % organic feeding, including locally grown sources, a sufficient supply of organic protein feed with the right amino acid profile at a competitive price is needed.
What solution does the tool offer?:Proteins extracted from organic green crops have the potential to substitute imported protein feed. Extracting proteins from red clover and clover grass using a novel method shows good results, especially with respect to a favourable amino acid composition.
