This project has received funding from the Bio Based Industries Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 720719

Around one-third of all food produced each year is wasted. Agrimax will build two pilot biorefineries where left overs from tomato,cereal, potato and olive will be converted into valuable products for the packaging, food and farming sectors.       

In addition web-based platform will allow growers to propose raw material for conversion, while manufacturers can request samples of the materials to incorporate into their products. By realising this demand for leftover, and producing a valuable raw material, a production chain will be born.
