AcronymINNOCUOUS

Proposal titleINNOVATION IN THE PROCESS OF CORK PRODUCTION FOR ELIMINATION

OF ODOURS RESPONSIBLE FOR CORK TAINT

AbstractCork taint due to the presence of trichloroanisole and other volatile compounds is

responsible for approximately 1000MECUs annual losses to the wine and cork industry

posing a serious survival problemto hundred of SMEs in the EU's less favoured regions, as

well as a threat to the continuation of the cultivation of cork oak forests and their

complex ecosystems.  The problem of cork taint must be overcometo ensure the survival

of this almost exclusively European based industry in order to economically competewith

the growing threat of the synthetic cork stopper industry, an increasingly non-European

based sector.The workplan for the Step 2 Demonstration project to be assessed under the

auspices of this exploratoryaward aims at the industrial scale implementation of an

integrated approach for cork treatment composed of physico-chemical unit operation and

their combination thereof to guarantee taint free cork stoppers. The possibility of the

implementation of such unit operations will be explored and some preliminary

investigations carried out to demonstrate the viability of the proposed unit operations.

Suitable partners for participation in the Step 2 Demonstration project will be identified

and detailed project planning and writing of the Step 2 Demonstration proposal will be

carried out.
