Entrepreneur Carlos Cabrera, who is originally from Panama, has a master's degree in Wageningen, a PhD in Delft and is now a postdoc in Wageningen. With Greencovery,  Cabrera wants to filter amino acids from waste streams. He aims to combine the Delft technique of Greencovery with a technique of the Wageningen chair group, where he is postdoc. "The advantage of this combined technique is that we can extract amino acids from complex lines in two steps, at low costs," Cabrera expects.

With the filtered amino acids, the company wants to make food supplements and chemicals.
