Launch of the BIOrescue project in Pamplona


The BIOrescue project held its Kick-off meeting at CENER’s premises in Pamplona, Spain, on 27 and 28 September 2016.

Together, the eleven partners of the BIOrescue project aim to demonstrate a resource-efficient biorefinery concept for mushroom compost that will allow its transformation into valuable bio-based products such as bio-pesticides, biodegradable nano-carriers for drugs or fertiliser encapsulation and bio-based horticultural fertilisers.

During the two-day meeting, all partners had the opportunity to present their role in the project and to discuss the synergies between the different activities. On the second day, the partners took part in a study visit organised in CENER’s biochemical pilot plant and discovered the equipment that will be used during the project.

The BIOrescue project will bring together industrial players and research centres from eight different European countries and will be coordinated by CENER, Spain’s National Renewable Energy Centre. The project is financed by the Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking and is set to run until September 2019.
