TYPE OF PROJECT: H2020-SME [Research and innovation program in the EU to finance initiatives of the companies that will lead the market in 2020]
THEMATIC: REVALUATION OF BY-PRODUCTS AND WASTE
Second H2020 project of Kimitec Group, in this case, in consortium with companies: Bioazul (Spain), ENCO (Italy), Exergy (United Kingdom), Adventech (Portugal), Slorom (Romania), Isitec (Germany), 2B (Italy); the EUROPEAN ASSOCIATION OF THE LIVESTOCK AND MEAT INDUSTRY; research groups in Spain, like CENTA, UNIVERSITY OF CÁDIZ, UNIVERSITY OF SEVILLE; and third world country members of the EU, as ALGEN (Slovenia) and UNIVERSITY OF LJUBLJANA. This project is part of the circular economy that is being campaigned from Brussels.
By acting on the wastewater treatment plant of an industrial slaughterhouse's beef cattle we can get up to 3 biostimulant products depending on the routes identified in the framework of the project: this includes a product rich in organic Nitrates, a microbiological biostimulant based on the fermentation of a Bacillus isolated from its own sewage, and a biostimulant of microalgae grown in water that rejects the WWTP.
With this project we realized that what was going to be managed as a waste, poured directly into the public channel, and it could produce a business benefit and enhance the circular economy, while also taking care of Nature and the Environment.
