Mixed Food Processing, Spain

Challenges:

Assess production of soil improvers from mixed food processing wastes composting and anaerobic digestion processes at real scale (Selecció Deseuras and FERVOSA) and innovative solid-state fermentation (SSF), pyrolysis and non-thermal atmospheric plasma (NTAP) (UVic-UCC and ULE facilities) of slaughterhouse, dairy and vegetal processing industries waste streams (coming from MAFRICA, Quesos Riudavets, etc.).

Solutions:

Characterise and test two existing soil improvers: compost and pelletised digestate; at testing lands (UVic-UCC) and/or cooperative lands (Cooperativa Plana de Vic). Test 3 innovative technologies for generating high-value soil improvers: SSF, Pyrolysis, NTAP (UVic-UCC and ULE facilities).

Outcomes:

Co-production of soil improvers from different food processing residues using innovative technologies and testing their effect on soil health in pot and field trials.

Replicability:

Results can be adapted for multiple value-chains (aquaculture, beverages, wine, olive oil, etc.) and transferred to different regions and countries.
