To mark the construction and commission of its two multi-feedstock pilot plants (biorefineries), the BBI JU-funded Agrimax project is hosting an online event to showcase the ground-breaking new facilities in Spain and Italy.
The Italian pilot plant is based at family-run farm, Chiesa in the North of Italy and is processing waste from tomatoes and cereals to produce biobased compounds such as lycopene, ferulic acid, cutin, and hydrocompost. Whilst the Spanish pilot plant, based at fruit processing company Indulleida in Spain will do the same for olive, tomato, cereal and potato waste to produce polyphenols, fibres, proteins and aromas.
Join consortium partners from across Europe, to hear how they have worked together to develop a range of high-value, biobased products for the food-ingredients, food-packaging and farming sectors. In addition to developing innovative processes, the pilot plants are adopting novel methods for coordinating and managing the provision of waste feedstocks, by using an online stakeholder platform to coordinate the provision of waste from many regional producers.
(please note this event will be held via zoom (link to be sent prior to the event), delivered in English and it will also be recorded).
This project has received funding from the Bio Based Industries Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 720719.
