Challenge: Feathers contain 90% keratin and can be a valuable input for the production of biodegradable materials. Currently though only about a quarter of waste feathers are valorised by the European poultry sector.
Solution: The UNLOCK project will valorise chicken feathers to manufacture high-added value bio-based products for agricultural applications.
Duration: May 2021 – April 2025
