Effluent streams are used for resource recovery

A new project aims to solve the problem of locally available wet residue streams by recovering the energy content and extracting the valuable elements from the inorganic part using a small scale biorefinery concept based on the SCWG process.

New synergies emerged at the FACCE SURPLUS end term meeting

Researchers from all of Europe met in Düsseldorf when FACCE SURPLUS hosted the end term meeting for the projects funded in the 1st call. Outputs from these projects will be used to prepare the next activities focusing on the valorization of research.

New project will develop advanced biochar fertilizers

A new project aims to develop a fertilizer based on available organic surplus residues that can replace conventional fertilizers, increase resource use efficiency and offer economic returns to farmers.

The coordinator of FACCE SURPLUS, Nicolas Tinois, was invited to present the ERA-NET in Canada.

FACCE SURPLUS at the International Bioeconomy Forum

FACCE SURPLUS presented during the yearly meeting of the International Bioeconomy Forum in Ottawa (CA).

Large amounts of agricultural waste, municipal landscaping, gardening waste and post-consumer wood are buried, dumped or, even burnt. This could be avoided by using such resources in biorefineries and encouraging small-scale flexi-feedstock biorefineries (SFB).

New project focuses on ways to use local underutilized waste streams in small-scall biorefineries

Urban, agricultural and industrial activities generate sources of biomass wastes still underexploited. They offer a potential feedstock for biorefinery. Small-scale biorefineries have to answer critical challenges to demonstrate their benefits compared to large scale solutions.

Salty soils offers a hidden gem for biomass production

A new project will develop methods for sustainable production of halophytes species in salt-affected areas. The aim is to use the obtained biomass to produce bio-based products, energy and food/feed supplements.
