Chang Liu, Eggxpert, will speak at Healthy Nutrition Conference, on June 26, during AgriFood Innovation Event in Venlo, The Netherlands.
Inspired by traditional Chinese medicine, scientific data and insufficient eggshell membrane management, EGGXPERT is initiating an innovative project of developing ESM into skin and health care products by employment of scientific researchers and advanced technologies.
We would start from skin care application because of quicker market entry and its impact function.
In our talk, we will show you the robust functions of eggshell membrane from scientific point of view and our innovation and sustainable solutions for product development.
We believe our solution will save egg farmers at least €10,000 per company (medium size) per year and further bring high value for their waste stream. We believe our unique selling point (USP) of being world’s first 100% egg membrane-based natural product will most serve the consumers.
What drives you?
I believe both traditional wisdom and scientific research. I believe in the power of revealing hidden value from nature resources.
Why should the delegate attend your presentation?
EGGXPERT is created by two Chinese ladies studying in Netherlands, who are seeing the huge eggshell waste problem. We dare to innovate and propose 100% sustainable solutions. We show you how we start and where we are heading to. How we design our product with best environment friendly thoughts. Come and share with us.
What emerging technologies/trends do you see as having the greatest potential in the short and long run?
EGGXPERT’s product developments involve advanced technology used in biomedical fields and corresponding biological function tests. This multidisciplinary approach brings the potential of the biowaste in high value and wide applications. Besides, the whole product packaging design is not only based on 100% environmental-friendly materials but also with advanced smart printing technology which makes us the unique and smart.
What kind of impact do you expect them to have?
- Combination of traditional Chinese medicine philosophy and advanced technologies for novel agrofood product design and development
- Innovative ideas of using eggshell biowaste, contributing to a more circular economy
- Saving egg farmers at least €10,000 per company (medium size) per year
What are the barriers that might stand in the way?
- Lack of expertise in skin care applications
- Limited funding resources which bring
- Difficulty in convincing local farmers to work together
Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.
About Chang Liu
Inspired by Traditional Chinese Medicine family background and Biobased Materials academic specialization, Ms. Chang Liu proposed an innovation idea of applying eggshell membrane into skin care products during her master study, which actively received positive feedback and strong interest from Dutch egg industry. In 2017, together with her business partner Dr. Rong Wang and great support from Brightlands Innovation Factory, she successfully founded EGGXPERT B.V., which is focusing on developing eggshell biowastes into high-value products.
About EGGXPERT B.V.
EGGXPERT was founded in 2017 by two Chinese female entrepreneurs with strong scientific background, which is facilitated by Brightlands Innovation Factory and Brightlands ecosystem. Aimed at contributing to a circular economy, EGGXPERT is developing sustainable solutions for eggshell biowaste from Dutch poultry industry, by employing traditional Chinese medicine wisdom with advanced modern technologies. From agrofood biowaste into high-value products, EGGXPERT will target various applications in cosmetic, health care and life care industries.
