FREE TRAINING CONFERENCE. AGRO-FOOD WASTE VALORIZATION AS A SOURCE OF VALUABLE BIOCHEMICALS IN CIRCULAR ECONOMY: A REALITY

 

UPDATE. FREE TRAINING CONFERENCE has been POSTPONED. 

 

Given the circumstances related to the global crisis by COVID-19, we have considered that the Free Training Conference should be postponed, with no specific date.

We apologize for the inconveniences that may result from this unexpected change. If you already booked your place. 

 

In the framework of BARBARA project, University of Alicante organizes this training conference with the aim to provide a platform to meet companies and researchers interested in the application of circular economy for the revalorization of agro-food wastes.

As a successful example, the main results obtained in BARBARA project will be presented. Furthermore, the potential of MW and rapid antimicrobial techniques will be shown by Milestone and Metrohm Hispania.

This is a European project which improves thermal, mechanical and aesthetic properties of bioplastics, which are generated from farming waste and by-products with a view to generate new materials and products with advanced functionalities for the construction and automotive sector.

 

 

REGISTRATION cancelled!

 

WHO IS IT AIMED AT?

Technical staff of companies and scientific community wishing to strengthen their knowledge in the field of circular economy, revalorization of agro-food wastes, extraction and antimicrobial techniques.
