Agro-food waste valorization as a source of valuable biochemicals in circular economy: a reality

Agro-food waste valorization as a source of valuable biochemicals in circular economy: a reality

Milestone and Univeristy of Alicante host an Online Free Conference on October 21, 2020, in the framework of BARBARA project. This online training conference provided a platform to meet companies and researchers interested in the application of circular economy for the valorization of agro-food wastes. The potential of microwaves and rapid antimicrobial techniques will be shown by Milestone and Metrohm Hispania. The main results obtained in BARBARA project will be presented as a successful example of valorization and final industrial application.
