Valorization of Residues from Intensive Horticulture: A Business Opportunity for Bio-Based Industries

This workshop will present the SuperBIO project and its potential for innovation in valorization of horticulture. It will present the myriad of types of horticultural residues and the potential within the Andalucian context. Next it will present biotechnological conversion of horticultural residues. Finally, a succesful EU case will be presented to showcase the potential for innovation in the bio-based industries.

When: 12th of September 2016, 15h30-18h
