The Business Development Manager of CTA, David Páez, has participated in a coordination meeting of the European project EXCornsEED in the Slovak city of Piestany. This project has a budget of €7.2 million to develop sustainable technologies to obtain functional ingredients for food, chemical products and cosmetics from secondary effluents of corn, bioethanol and biodiese biorefineries.
The meeting was attended by 13 partners from 8 European countries (Italy, Slovakia, Romania, Spain, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany and the Netherlands), who discussed the project status and the next steps.
EXCornsEED is part of the European objective of transforming traditional bioethanol production into a new concept of more sustainable biorefinery, in line with the European Union's bioeconomy strategy and the new concept of Circular Economy, which promotes greater use of resources.
CTA leads the techno-economic and regulatory advisory tasks, as well as the entire standardization area. In the same way, CTA is responsible for the creation of business models and colides the work package of communication and dissemination of the project.
This project has an incentive from the Bio-Based Industries (BBI) within the framework of the Horizon 2020 program (H2020) of the European Union.
