The aim of this work is utilization of the grape pomace piled up as a waste after winemaking and its application in producing biodiesel. Furthermore, a novel yoghurt product was produced, enriched with antioxidants, such as polyphenolics from the grape pomace and berries in order to improve its nutritional value, contributing to food preservation and significantly reducing the risk of diseases. In fact, for the first time we engaged these compounds in preparation of a new yoghurt product,
that proved to be last ­ longer and more beneficial for human health than the traditional one, since the antioxidants play a great role in the prevention of cardiovascular disease, cancer etc. Furthermore, a cost-
effective, easily made and environmentally friendly biodiesel was produced, that could represent an alternative to the old fossil petroleum to replace it and resolve the present energy crisis.
