CakePHP The international conference will take place in Brussels and will be your opportunity to get valuable input on biomass sidestreams, exchange ideas, make contacts with other participants and project partners.

 

Our mission is to interactively share and discuss potentials and opportunities of a sustainable bioeconomy with you!

Therefore, we have designed an innovative programme format which is very lively, dynamic and practice-oriented. Join us at this conference and learn more about the valorization potential of sidestreams from the forestry and agricultural sector for a sustainable bioeconomy.

 

Some highlights of the conference:

  • Innovative interaction with high level representatives from policy and the (bio) economy community

About the project

AGRIFORVALOR builds bridges between researchers and practitioners by demonstrating new opportunities on how farmers and agro-forestry could convert the biomass residues into valorized products while using e.g. biotechnology and recycling technologies. The AGRIFORVALOR technology-transfer experts have been working with the agricultural and forestry sectors to identify new valorisation pathways for primary and secondary biomass residues.

The project includes 16 partners from Belgium, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Netherlands, and Spain.

AGRIFORVALOR has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No. 696394.
