Kick-off PROMOFER project CBE JU call

Kick-off PROMOFER project CBE JU call

Last week, the PROMOFER project kicked off in Valencia at AIMPLAS. We are very excited to be part of this new project funded by Circular Bio-based Europe Joint Undertaking (CBE JU) call.

The PROMOFER project will address the valorisation of two kinds of feedstock (lignocellulosic biomass and food industry waste) by improving the fermentation processes and downstream purification, solving identified bottlenecks at both steps and producing high-value applications. We will be producing PHA, more specifically PHBV, in mixed cultures using residual streams from the agri-food industry.

The integration of these waste streams as biorefinery feedstocks will allow industries to get a higher value for their side streams, improving competitiveness and resource efficiency and opening new opportunities for bioplastics production with added advantages of environmental performances and social acceptance.
