Energy and biofuels production from renewable sources
We can convert biomass and waste into energy and biofuels through saccharification processes, lipidic extraction (e.g., from seaweeds and yeasts) and anaerobic fermentation, resulting in gas and alcohol production.
The web kick-off meeting held on 30th April 2020, launched the activities of BioSFerA project (BIOfuels production from Syngas FERmentation for Aviation and maritime use), funded by European Unions’ Horizon 2020 research programme.
The ENGICOIN project – Engineered microbial factories for CO2 exploitation in an integrated waste treatment platform- has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme.
SATURNO (Organic waste and Carbon dioxide Transformed into carburates, fertilizers and chemical products; concrete application of circular ecoNOmy) is a 30-months research project funded by Piedmont Region within the scope of the Bioeconomy Technologic Platform initiative.
