Galician Innovation Agency has approved the BIOequip2CETIM Infrastructure Project, financed by the FEDER fund. The project is focused on the consolidation and strengthening of one of the main scientific-technical and research lines of the CETIM Technological Centre, focused on Bioeconomy and Circular Economy, two of the areas in which it already has extensive know-how and expertise, and which have great potential for growth at the regional, national and international levels. In addition, the technological developments associated with the use of said infrastructure are aligned with both the RIS3 Strategy of Galicia, as well as with the Spanish and European Strategy of Bioeconomy and Circular Economy.
The BIOequip2CETIM infrastructure line is based on a set of technologically advanced equipment that allows carrying out different tasks associated with both the revaluation phases of raw materials, by-products and waste, as well as obtaining raw materials of interest. Their high added-value final applications will be aligned with current Bioeconomy strategies and with the Circular Economy Plan of the European Union.
