Disrupting EU dependence on imported fertiliser compounds – SUSFERT Project

SUSFERTs highly sustainable bio-based fertilisers will replace conventional products, which are depending heavily on imported rock phosphate, and will valorise waste and by-products of several industries to strengthen the European circular economy. To meet the ever-rising demand for food and feed, the European agriculture currently still depends heavily on the use of non-renewable, resource-intense fertilisers.…

From waste to reclaimed water and biomethane for transport: LIFE Methamorphosis project

Through the use of innovative technologies, the LIFE Methamorphosis project enables to obtain reclaimed water with lower energy consumption and also to produce biomethane from municipal and agro-industrial waste for the transport sector. LIFE Methamorphosis is a project co-funded by the European Union within the framework of the LIFE Programme, to promote the environment and…

From municipal biowaste to soluble bioorganic substances – LIFECAB Project

LIFECAB is a R&D project, co-funded by the EU LIFE Program (LIFE16 ENV/IT/000179), which aims to demonstrate a new process to treat municipal biowaste (MBW) and produce soluble bioorganic substances (SBO). These substances will be used as additives for anaerobic fermentation reactors, with reduced entrepreneurial risk, in three different EU countries (Italy, Greece, Cyprus), to…

From agroforestry waste to bio-based materials: the REHAP project

The REHAP project is transforming agricultural and forestry waste into high added value products for the construction sector, reducing energy-use and CO2 emissions. Agricultural and forestry residues are being used in many new innovative ways, with the bio-based chemical industry now showing greater growth than the petrochemical industry. The development of chemicals and materials from lignocellulosic…
