RT&D Manager of Rapeseed/Canola Protein Venture
Gertjan Smolders

I’m currently working on...

澳客网比分直播手机版 The development of sustainable proteins from Canola/Rapeseed. For more than 30 years, it has been known that the proteins in Canola offer a very high nutritional value, close to that of dairy proteins. What’s more, this crop is readily available in large quantities. The development of a viable extraction technology for this plant material is challenging, but potentially very rewarding.

The aspect of my work that excites and inspires me the most is...

To be able to contribute to a more sustainable world, by developing technology and products that really can make a difference. In particular, I love to work closely in multi-disciplinary teams that have a broad set of activities - R&D, manufacturing, and marketing - in order to turn a concept to a reality.

The breakthrough I would most like to see made in my field is...

That DSM would be the first in the world to introduce this sustainable protein. It will be a game changer for the use of plant-based proteins in the food industry, and a good example of where you try to get more value from already existing  agro materials in the biobased economy.
