RENESENG II aims to further advance the emerging area of Bio-Process-Systems Engineering (BPSE) and investigate the role it can play on waste valorisation and, thus, circular economy. To achieve this, RENESENG-II capitalizes on recent advances and contributes to the development of diverse disciplines, such as process systems engineering, industrial biotechnology, catalytic engineering, environmental systems analysis, and knowledge management. Specific objectives include:
- expanding the knowledge for value chains across feedstocks, products and industries.
- investigating the area of knowledge management for the effective communication across the diverse academic research scales and industrial applications.
- applying the existing RENESENG tools, models, methods, know how as well as the newly developed in this project to emerging topics of bioeconomy and links to circular economy, with special focus on various forms of “waste” biomass (e.g., MSW, glycerol, lignin).
- Enhancing the network with new academic and non academic partners and significantly contributing via meaningful secondments to the career development of ESR and ER.
The application domain covers thermochemical, chemical, and biochemical valorization of diverse waste biomass sources, including municipal, agricultural and industrial waste.
