In an effort to move towards a more sustainable bioeconomy, the Model2Bio project, in collaboration with Global Factor, is working on the development of a tool based on mathematical models to facilitate decision-making. Their focus is on predicting the physico-chemical characteristics of agri-food waste streams and identifying optimal valorisation pathways.

In this context, Model2Bio has organised a free conference titled “Rethinking waste and new ways to reuse it: the bioeconomy as an opportunity for regional development” on October 19. The objective is to provide answers to critical questions through panel discussions and engaging presentations.

This interdisciplinary event will bring together food producers, waste managers, bio-based industries, academics, and policymakers to discuss the transition of the agri-food sector towards a circular bioeconomy.

Some of the questions to be addressed in this conference include: What are the challenges with waste management? What are the latest scientific innovations regarding the reuse of food production waste? What is needed to make the agri-food sector a truly circular bioeconomy? Additionally, the potential of the Gipuzkoa territory, Basque Country, for the development of the bioeconomy will be explored.

The agenda and more details about the conference will be shared soon. To stay informed, you are invited to follow updates on Model2Bio’s Twitter or LinkedIn.
