The Biorefine Cluster Europe is an initiative bridging multiple projects in the domain of nutrient and energy cycling. The cluster aims to stimulate interaction between projects, enlarge the output/exposure of projects, and put the biorefinery concept on the agenda.
Improved Nutrient and Energy Management through Anaerobic Digestion
Since January 2016, 16 applications were submitted by the central management team of the Biorefine Cluster. This month (October 2017), the team scored a hat trick with 3 grants on 3 project proposals: ALG-AD, NEW-C-COUNTRY, RENU2FARM.
AgroCycle is evaluating agri-food waste value chains including a wide range of valorisation pathways such as biofuels and biopolymers. Rice bran is one value chain which has significant potential for high-value recovered products.
