GRASSA wants the world to switch to a more sustainable food concept, for animals and humans. Food that is healthy, but with ingredients that do not need to be supplied from far away. This is possible with biorefining, by getting more out of grass and vegetable residues. This allows more mouths to be fed with the same amount of grass and vegetables: not only cows, but also chickens, pigs and even humans.

GRASSA! develops refining machines with which we can refine grass and other green residue flows and process them into a locally usable product. This is how GRASSA contributes to the upgrading of green raw materials, to a more robust income for the agricultural sector and to a solution for the increasing food shortage.


In biorefining, green raw materials are processed into new, high-quality products: different components are separated that are worth more separately. For example, biorefining makes it possible to make proteins from grass, among other things, available for various purposes. And that offers many benefits for the environment, for the agricultural sector and for the local economy..


An important part of the Dutch agricultural area consists of grassland. That grass is largely intended for cows, the only ones who can digest this grass with their multiple stomachs. Single-stomached animals, such as pigs, chickens and humans, cannot and they need to meet their protein needs differently. Pigs, for example, receive high-quality proteins mainly in the form of soy meal, which is imported from Latin America. Grass protein has a similar composition to soy meal and is therefore an excellent soy substitute if it is processed properly: with biorefinery.
