  • 2018-2022


Design a new concept of integral and cascade valorisation of the different fractions that make up the organic fraction of urban solid waste (OFMSW) to obtain bioproducts with greater added value.

Development of the bio-waste refinery through the application of the circular economy concept


Process development for:

  • OFMSW fractionation methods
  • Valorization of protein fraction
  • Valorization of lipid fraction
  • Valorization of lignin fraction

Fermentation  process optimization and upscaling

Upstream / downstream processes for the separation and / or purification of the different fractions

Process flows / Material balances / Feasibility studies
