Extraction of proteins and residual oilOur contribution "Extraction of proteins and residual oil from flax (Linum usitatissimum), camelina (Camelina sativa), and sunflower (Helianthus annuus) oilseed press cakes" is now published on Biomass Conversion and Biorefinery - Springer. This work targets the chemical characterization of flax cake (FC), camelina cake (CC), and sunflower cake (SC) in order to evaluate the composition of proteins and residual oil, which are two of the main components, and to assess further technological applications of these biowastes.

The use of a deep eutectic solvent (DES) was developed for protein extraction as a green alternative to conventional organic solvents. While the lipid fraction was extracted with a conventional method but fully characterized through HPLC-ESI-Q-TOF.
