INESCOP provides solutions at the 9th International Conference on Sustainable Solid Waste Management held in Corfu

Two researchers from the Advanced Materials department shared the results obtained in ByProtval and SuperBiodiesel, two European LIFE research projects in which the technological centre participates in the recovery of organic waste in new by-products with low environmental impact.

The Greek island of Corfu brought together more than 600 participants from 80 countries at the 9th International Conference on Sustainable Solid Waste Management organised by the National Technical University of Athens. The aim of the event was to take a step forward in the promotion of innovative technologies and effective practices that encourage the increase in efficiency in the use of raw materials to improve circular economy in the industry.

The congress relied on the participation of Dr. Henoc Pérez, researcher of the Department of Advanced Materials and Technologies of INESCOP, who delivered the presentation "Industrial Symbiosis to valorise wastewater derived from rendering plants for different industrial applications". In it he presented some of the conclusions of the LIFE ByProtval project, a multisectoral research project that promotes circular economy through the use of animal by-products, not intended for human consumption, for the production of retanning agents and fertilisers.

Biofuel and waste recovery

In addition to the presentation, INESCOP participated in CORFU 2022 with a poster of the LIFE SuperBiodiesel project called “Industrial symbiosis to valorise fleshing produced in tannery industry for different industrial applications”. This project is obtaining remarkable results in the production of high added value biodiesel from animal fats coming from tannery by-products.

The event served to outline opportunities for collaboration for future projects with companies, universities and other technology centres working on the recovery of waste that would otherwise be landfilled. In addition to the important institutional representation, CORFU 2022 has had the collaboration of nine journals of scientific interest with a high influence on the international scene.
