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

In the framework of BARBARA project, this online training conference will provide a platform to meet companies and researchers interested in the application of circular economy for the valorization of agro-food wastes. The potential of MW 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.
