Professor Yang Qian from the School of Life Sciences of Harbin Institute of Technology said that Heilongjiang is a major potato production province, but under the traditional technology, potato starch production and processing will generate a lot of waste, waste resources and cause pollution to the environment. The team developed “potato starch industrial waste recycling biotechnology”, which is a high-tech technology for the recycling of potato starch industrial waste and juice using biotechnology.
A few days ago, the Engineering Research Center of Microbial Resources Preservation and Utilization of Harbin Institute of Technology and Heilongjiang Maoquan Potato Biotechnology Co., Ltd. “joined hands” and passed the industrialization demonstration and production scale test of a thousand-ton starch production line.
“After 20 years of painstaking research, the team finally ushered in the ‘birth’ and ‘implementation’ of this technology, and entered the stage of promotion and application.” Professor Yang Qian of the School of Life Sciences of Harbin Institute of Technology said that Heilongjiang is a major potato-producing province, but Under the traditional process, the production and processing of potato starch will generate a large amount of waste, waste resources and pollute the environment. The team developed “potato starch industrial waste recycling biotechnology”, which is a high-tech technology for the recycling of potato starch industrial waste and juice using biotechnology.
Yang Qian said that this technology completely eliminates the harm caused by potato residue and high-concentration organic sewage to the environment by means of resource-based treatment. Feed protein sources, human protein, amino acids, oligosaccharides, B vitamins and other products are extracted from the waste liquid of starch processing. The extracted products can be used in functional foods and medical care products. Oligosaccharides can be processed into diabetes treatment products. The processing of medicines and B vitamins into health products has realized the transformation of potato starch production waste into treasure, and at the same time, it will also help farmers in potato production areas to increase economic benefits and expand employment.
