Chibio work package 2 aims

ChiBio: Work Package 2 Aims

  • Development of efficient, economical and environmentally-friendly pre-treatment of crustacean shell wastes to extract chitinous material(Raw material sources: Europe/Asia/Africa).

  • Stabilisation of chitinous material for transfer to project partners (UMB, INS, TUM, FhG).

  • Development of assays for constant quality control.

Microbial pre treatment

Microbial Pre-treatment

  • Chemical extraction methods- costly and a hazard to the environment.

  • Biological extraction methods- more cost effective while posing less cause for environmental concern.

  • Microbial chitin extraction methods:

    • Direct use of enzymes (Brück et al, 2011; Jo et al, 2011).

    • Fermentation (Jung et al, 2005; Jung et al, 2007; Rao et al, 2000).

      Fermentation

  • Initial optimisation, adapting methods from literature.

  • Identification of novel microorganisms for fermentation.

Screening for useful properties

Small scale fermentation

Identification

Large scale fermentation

Characterisation


Initial screening

Initial Screening

  • Demineralisation–acid production.

    • Replicated fermentation method on micro scale.

  • Deproteinisation–protease production.

    • Casein agar plates.

    • Colorimetric protease assay to quantify activity

      (Vishwanatha et al, 2009).

Selection of organisms

Selection of Organisms


To be done

To be done

  • Identification of isolates; PCR, sequencing- BLAST

  • Characterization of isolates: biochemical tests, staining etc.

  • Continue to meet chitinous material production targets.

  • Continuation of fermentation experiments using raw crustacean waste from Ireland, Indonesia and Tunisia.


Future prospects

Future prospects

  • With select cultures, the aim is to scale-up fermentations to pilot scale to investigate the reality of industrial large scale fermentations in the breakdown of crustacean waste.

  • Development of an economic, environmentally friendly, waste reducing facility.

  • Profit-generating business opportunities for Irish Seafood Industry.
