- The event was arranged within the framework of ICT-BIOCHAIN, a European Project that aims at supporting the growth of the Bioeconomy and improving the biomass logistic processes in Europe.
- Around 20 Andalusian companies from the ICT and biomass sectors have participated.
The Andalusian Regional Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Sustainable Development and Technological Corporation of Andalusia (CTA) celebrated a Demo Day with 20 Andalusian companies to demonstrate ICT solutions applied to biomass logistics and management, on November 7th.
The event involved on-site visits to the facilities of 3 companies located in the province of Seville: Oleícola El Tejar, EMASESA-E.D.A.R. and the Instituto de la Grasa. There, the assistants could appreciate different innovative ICT, IoT and Industry 4.0. solutions for the biobased sector in a real operative environment.
This ‘Demo Day’ was organised within the framework of the European project ICT-BIOCHAIN, which aims at improving biomass logistic process through the application of advanced ICT solutions.
This initiative provides access to expert knowledge and tools to promote the integration of ICT, IoT and Industry 4.0. to the biomass value chain. In this way, it intends to contribute to a more sustainable and price-competitive supply of biomass, which will boost the European Bioeconomy.
ICT-BIOCHAIN is a BBI-JU project looking to identify opportunities for ICT to increase the efficiency of biomass supply chains for the bio-based industry. Formed by a consortium of 8 partners from 5 different European countries (Spain, Ireland, Finland, Germany and the United Kingdom), this initiative has received funding from the Bio Based Industries Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
