In the food and packaging supply chain? Tell us thoughts on using bio-based products.

EU-funded Agrimax project, are developing and demonstrating the production of multiple, high-value products from crop and food-processing waste to tackle the millions of tonnes of food wasted every year.

Food ingredients and packaging additives can be extracted from by-products and unavoidable wastes for the agrifood production chain. If you are in this supply chain, we would like to find out your thoughts on using such compounds. The survey will take around 10 minutes to complete (all answers are anonymous).

Take the survey. (open until the 30th June 2019.)

BIOVOICES – Mobilisation and Mutual Learning Workshop on Waste Valorisation, 9th April, UK

BIOVOICES – Mobilisation and Mutual Learning Workshop on Waste Valorisation

Date: 9th April

Time: 9:30am–4:30pm

Venue: Biorenewables Development Centre

Address: 1 Hassacarr Close, Chessingham Park, Dunnington, York, YO19 5SN

BioVale, Biorenewables Development Centre (BDC) and Minerva Communications are hosting a workshop focused on the advancement of bio-based products and processes in the UK market, contributing to a national drive to collect and collate view on challenges and opportunities facing the bio-based sector.

Minerva, as the UK partner for the EU funded H2020 project BIOVOICES, is working towards identifying and overcoming key challenges currently hindering the uptake of bio-based products across Europe. Through a series of Mobilisation and Mutual Learning events, Minerva is promoting dialogue to identify and address the key challenges relevant to the UK market.

The aim of this event is to identify these challenges and work towards overcoming them to advance the bio-based economy within the UK.

This event, one of four regional UK events, will focus on waste valorisation, which is driving a wide range of bio-based areas and the production of bio-based products, with the aim to identify key challenges and work through a combined effort to agree ways to progress the UK bio-based industry through discussions with key figures from each of the identified stakeholder; Civil Society, Business and Innovation, Research and Education and Public Administration.

If you are interested in attending, please email emma.needham@biovale.org with your details and we will get in touch.

Agrimax survey: we want to know your thoughts on bio-based products for food and packaging

Agrimax survey: we want to know your thoughts on bio-based products for food and packaging

Food ingredients and packaging additives can be extracted from by-products and wastes of the agrifood production chain.

The Agrimax project would like to find out your assessment of the applicability of these compounds in today’s food businesses.

Agrimax – an EU-funded project that is developing and demonstrating the production of multiple, high-value products from crop and food-processing waste by building two, flexible, multi-feedstock pilot biorefineries in Europe. The project aims to tackle Europe’s food waste problem as around 90 million tonnes of food and 700 million tonnes of the crop are wasted every year. The project will maximise the EU’s sustainability while providing new biobased compounds for the chemicals, food-packaging and agricultural sectors.

It will take around 10 minutes to fill in the survey. All answers will be handled anonymously; it is not possible to track back any answer to any participant of the survey.
