Entomo AgroIndustrial is taking part in the EU funded project VALUEWASTE. The VALUEWASTE project proposes an integrated approach in urban biowaste upcycling for the production of high-value bio-based products, developing the first complete solution to fully valorise biowaste that can be replicated across Europe. Our role within the project will be to assess the urban biowaste as feed substrate for BSF larvae for protein production. With the outcomes of small-scale experiences, a DEMO plant will be designed and installed in the Waste Treatment Plant of Cañada Hermosa (Murcia), where pilot experiences will be conducted with the selectively collected organic fraction of the municipal waste. The data registered will be used for the design of a large-scale plant and a business plan.
The project started on November 2018 will last 4 years and gathers 17 partners from 6 different countries. CETENMA (ES) – coordinator-, Eurizon SL (ES), Savonia-Ammattikorkeakouluoy (FI), CESPA Servicios Urbanos de Murcia (ES), Ayuntamiento de Murcia (ES), ITAINNOVA (ES), Unibio AS (DK), Agro Business Park (DK), UNE (ES), Nutrients Recovery Systems (BE), Ekobalans Fenix AB (SE), INDEREN (ES), GAIKER (ES), Entomo AgroIndustrial (ES), SEAH (FR), Kalundborg Kommune (DK) and European Biomass Industry Association (BE).
