MYTITOX: Protocols for the detoxification of mussels and pectinids with microencapsulated agents

Industrial application of protocols for the detoxification of mussels and pectinids via processing or purification with microencapsulated agents. Use of nanotechnology to anticipate contamination in “batea”.

The objective of the project is based on the elaboration of industrial protocols, using microencapsulated active products, for the detoxification of mussels. Together with the companies Pescados Marcelino, PAYPAY, Mariscos Veiro, Depuradora de Molusco La Sirena, and the academic centers ANFACO-CECOPESCA and the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratories (INL), GalChimia participates in the MytiTox Project.

MytiTox has been funded by the Spanish Government and the European Union through the program FEDER INNTERCONECTA 2015. The budget was 1.461.272,00 euros.
