End-of-waste: new biobased business platform

(12-02-2018) Ghent University has approved a new business platform on upgrading waste streams.

The End-of-Waste platform is focused on upgrading waste from the agro-food value chain and similar organic-biological wastes.

Bringing together a multidisciplinary consortium of 32 driven professors and their departments around the processing and recovery of  by-pass flows out of bio-industry will lead to a strong synergetic effect on concept developments and realisations and result in commercialization initiatives at Ghent University. The added value in the field will be maximized.

More specifically, the End-of-Waste business unit aims at setting up academic-industrial collaborations in the field of reprocessing organic-biological by-pass flows into valuable chemicals, energy, materials and products which can be reused in a range of sectors.

The new platform will work in synergy with the BioRefine Cluster Europe, which is a development oriented cluster of European and national projects dedicated to renewable resources and resource recovery from biobased wastestreams.
