|Specs manages logistics chain in Dutch Plant Extract Library consortium
On October 2nd, 2013 a kick-off meeting was held by the Knowledge Centre for Plant Metabolites (Kenniscentrum Plantenstoffen) in the Dutch town of Monster. During this meeting, the idea of a plant extract library was launched to unlock bio-active compounds from agricultural and horticultural crops. Dutch plant breeders, being the world leaders in the export of bulbs, plants, roots, cut flowers and trees, will supply the necessary plant material for this library, after which they will be processed into extracts, thus bridging the gap between commercial horticulture and high-end markets like the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and (agro)chemical industry.
Take a look at the Kick-off video of this project here:
