    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

About Welke innovaties verminderen de Europese afhankelijkheid van de betwiste kokosolie, palmpitolie, vetzuren en ricinus-, of castorolie. Voor waardevolle substituten heeft Wageningen University & Research, in het COSMOS-project, de planten Camelina en Crambre onderzocht. Nieuwe kweektechnieken, waaronder CRISPR, verbeterden de eigenschappen van deze gewassen wat betreft geur en moleculaire structuur. Na winning van de olie kan je de reststromen aan vee maar ook aan insecten voeren, zoals de Black Soldier Fly-larven. De afdeling entomologie van Wageningen University kon aldus de valorisatie vergroten met waardevolle proteïne en insectenolie.
About What innovations reduce Europe’s dependency on unstable and contested imports of coconut oil, palm kernel oils, fatty acids and castor oil? For substitutes, researchers of Wageningen University and Research, by the COSMOS-project, looked into the crops Camelina and Crambe. New plant breeding techniques, such as CRISPR, enhanced characteristics of these crops regarding both their flavor and the molecular structure of their oils. One can further valorise the side streams, such as press cake, by using them as feed for the Black Soldier Fly larvae. The Entomology-department thus, out of these new crops, realise extra valuable proteins and insect oils.
