Sustainable up-cycling of agricultural residues: modular cascading waste conversion system
The UpWaste project concentrates on the development of a flexible and modular system for the conversion of agricultural residues into heterotrophic microalgal (Galdieria sulphuraria) and insect (Hermetia illucens) biomass.
Innovative applications from sunflower by-products
The project aims to create an integrated value chain of sunflower biomass by considering the entire process from plant selection and cultivation, biomass collection and transformation, up to the formulation of bioactive extracts and testing these in the field.
Biofortified and climate-resilient food and fodder production on marginal soils
The project aims to map potential crop yields and the valorisation opportunities on marginal soils under various regional conditions in Europe and try to optimize the biomass production.
Miscanthus for Contaminated and Marginal Lands PLUS
The MISCOMAR+ project will extend the evidence-base for Miscanthus as a leading perennial bioenergy crop for Marginal, Contaminated and industrially damaged Lands (MaCL) using interdisciplinary academic and industrial expertise with novel Miscanthus hybrids bred for climate change resilience.
