Boosting Andalusian capacities for the Bioeconomy in the Olive, Horticulture and Biomass Algal sector

Logotipo ATRESBIO Andalusia

ATRESBIO seeks to build and consolidate value chains to obtain bioproducts derived from by-products (residues) from the olive grove, horticulture and algal biomass. To do this, ATRESBIO project will analyse regional capabilities in strategical research and innovation services to identify improvement areas. In addition, it will carry out an action plan for helping in the deployment of the Andalusian Bioeconomy and will propose a medium-term technological surveillance system.

The project aims to maximize the competitiveness of the Andalusian industrial fabric, economic growth and jobs created linked with sectors of high added value for the region, such as agriculture, energy and agribusiness.

The project is funded by the Regional Ministry of Economy, Knowledge, Research and University of the Andalusian Government through the EU ERDF Operational Programme.
