On June 16, professor Maria J. Lopez, Project Coordinator of the RECOVER will take part, as member of the Advisory board of ECOFUNCO, at the workshop ‘Bio-based materials research: advances from ECOFUNCO and BIONTOP European projects’.
She will give an overview of RECOVER with some advances on the work performed so far, explaining the expected impacts: establish a new circular cross-sectorial interconnection (waste management& biotechnology)and strengthen existing interconnections (bioplastic/agriculture & agri-food); create three new bio-based value chains (link standard plastics with insects/microorganisms and enzymes providers) and remodel existing petrochemical-derived value chains (biofertilizers, agricultural bio-films and food packaging); and validate new and improved processing technology. Scale up approach.
The workshop will be held online, from 9.30 to 18, and it is free of charge.
