Research Activity
Research goals: pgrading residual biomasses as
source of bio-based products for the chemical industry
and for agricultural uses upgrading biomasses, such as
compost, anaerobic digestate and organic residues
from mechanical-biological treatment plants, as source
of bio-based products for the chemical industry and for
agricultural uses
Research methods: Characterization of the soluble
substances (SBO) isolated from residual biomasses:
chemical nature, properties and technological
performance in environmental technology, agriculture,
animal husbandry and fabrication of materials. Pilot
plant studies for process and products development to
industrial and commercial scale.
Research results: SBO have been demonstrated
competitive products for use in agriculture and in
animal husbandry, as well as for remediation of
contaminated soils and water and for the manufacture
