We have the complete multidisciplinary expertise in-house that is required for the transition to a circular agricultural production model
We map potential crop yields and valorisation opportunities on marginal lands under different regional conditions in Europe and optimize biomass production and valorisation with biofertilizers or soil additives, such as silicon. We also investigate 'circularity', i.e. the maximum use of input materials and reuse of the waste produced by the system.
Pyrolysis is a technology that can be used for the production of new adsorbents (i.e. biochar or active carbon) to improve the quality of moderately polluted soils and organic or inorganic polluted water. We have expertise in the overall pyrolysis optimization cycle: from reactor design to development of new methods to perform, qualify and quantify the adsorption characteristics of the developed adsorbents. We study biochar as matrix component for several new applications in agriculture and urban green areas.
