Production systems of the new bioeconomy should be circular and sustainable, minimizing the environmental impact and ensuring the efficient use of natural resources.
Biorefinery is based on an efficient use of biological resources, such as traditional biomass (organic waste) and new sources such as microalgae or slogan, to get bioenergy (biogas, liquid biofuels, etc.) and bioproducts (bio-fertilizers, bioplastics, biomaterials , building blocks, etc.).
To optimize water use in production environments it is necessary to develope solutions to reuse treated water, take advantage of resources such as nutrients and to improve the quality of spills by removing emerging contaminants (eg, pesticides, drugs, etc.).
Development of new and more sustainable production systems and products with a reduced environmental footprint.
