Emerging Bio-Based Technologies
Critical Raw Materials Extraction Technologies (CRM) from primary (mining) and secondary raw materials (RAEEs, photovoltaic cells, batteries, electric vehicles, wind generators, etc.).
Biocatalysts (bacteria, fungi, microalgae, enzymes) for biorecovery processes (extraction of proteins, fatty acids, valuable metals …), bioremediation (metal recovery, microplastic removal, etc.) and plastics biodegradation.
Obtaining products with high added value (eg: proteins, fatty acids, building blocks, etc.) from different waste streams (marine fishing by-products, single cells, sewage sludge …) through biobased processes (eg: biological processes , enzymatic processes, etc.).
Development of enzymatic and / or biological pretreatments to improve the energy efficiency of different industrial processes).
