Enhanced bioconversion of agricultural residues through cascading use

PROJECT SCOPE

To develop and demonstrate a new innovative biorefinery concept based on the cascading use of spent mushroom substrate (SMS) supplemented by wheat straw & other seasonal underutilised lignocellulosic feedstocks.

To avoid disposal and allow for the production of some biodegradable bio-based products and bioactive compounds

CENER ROLE

Project Coordinator.

To lead the research line of SMS conditioning and two step fractionation process of the SMS into three valuable fractions (extract, high glucan solid and enriched lignin liquid).

Secondary conversion related to sugar fermentation for biopesticides production.

Sustainability Assessment.
