In a circular economy perspective, the team aims at identifying advanced resources, systems and solutions for the sustainable development of the industrial and agro-food sector, by means of:
– optimisation of enzymatic processes for the transformation of non-food lignocellulosic biomass, agricultural and industrial transformation waste to “building blocks” for the green chemistry;
– characterization of microalgae to be developed as platform for the production of valuable industrial compounds;
– identification of molecules and phyto-complex from 2nd and 3rd generation biomass acting as biostimulants;
– selection of eco-sustainable systems for the plant protection (natural molecules and endophytes) and for the bioremediation (microalgae)
