Project Title


Innovative approaches to turn agricultural waste into ecological and economic assets


This project aims to enable “agricultural wastes, by-products and co-products”, called “agro-wastes, to be fully integrated as true resource and therefore revoked as waste. The concept of the project consists in involving all agriculture chain actors at the territory level in order to:

  • Develop innovative eco-design and assessment tools of circular agro-waste management strategies and address related gap of dialogue, knowledge and data,
  • Improve agro-waste resources use efficiency by upgrading the most widespread mature technology (i.e. anaerobic digestion, AD) and by eco-designing innovative bio-processes and products,
  • Ensure and accelerate the development of new business concepts and stakeholders platform for cross-chain valorisation of agro-waste on a territorial and seasonal basis
