Bringing together a multidisciplinary consortium of 32 driven professors and their departments around the processing and recovery of by-pass flows out of bio-industry will lead to a strong synergetic effect on concept developments and realisations and result in commercialization initiatives at Ghent University. The added value in the field will be maximized. More specifically, the End-of-Waste business unit aims at setting up academic-industrial collaborations in the field of reprocessing organic-biological by-pass flows into valuable chemicals, energy, materials and products which can be re-used in a range of sectors.
The End-of-Waste Business Development unit is also opening a position for a business developer.
The new platform will work in synergy with the BioRefine Cluster Europe, which is a development oriented cluster of European and national projects dedicated to renewable resources and resource recovery from biobased wastestreams.
