Our R&D interests in Circular & Bio-economy
Waste valorisation technologies and strategies towards Zero Waste production
Digitisation towards Circular 4.0 and Bio 4.0
New Circular Value Chains and business models
Bio-based and/or renewably sourced products for reduced carbon footprint
Study of best use for waste streams and downstream process development to extract selected target fraction(s)
New applications of bio-based compounds with unique environmental, functional and/or safety performance.
Examples of Success cases
Agricultural & food-processing waste valorisation into high-value products
IRIS monitoring, IT and bioeconomy solutions support the optimal advanced biorefinery upscaling and applications of extracted compounds.
Barrier Biopolymers from cheese by-products for sustainable packaging
Through simulation, monitoring and characterization, IRIS performed the upscaling of a patented process at industrial scale.
