1st SMIBIO workshop
23 November 2016, Buenos Aires, Argentina
The main aim of the SMIBIO Project is to develop small-scale integrated biorefinery units capable of processing different kinds of biomass produced in short radius catchments rural and small urban areas, both in Europe and in CELAC (Community of Latin American and Caribbean States).
The SMIBIO Project outcomes are expected to contribute significantly to the successful implementation of future biomass policies for reducing the risk of health and environmental impacts caused by the non-optimal use of agro-industrial wastes and significantly increase farm productivity and thus improve household livelihoods of farmers.
First results of the project were presented on 23 November 2016 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in the state owned Centro Cultural de la Ciencia del Ministerio de Ciencia, Tecnología e Innovación Productiva (Mincyt) where the first SMIBIO workshop on small-scale biorefineries was held.
