Environmental assessment of viticulture waste valorisation through composting as a biofertilisation strategy for cereal and fruit crops
Composting is a solid waste management alternative that avoids the emission of methane associated with its disposal in landfill and reduces or eliminates the need for chemical fertilisers if compost is applied. The main ...
Environmental assessment of complex wastewater valorisation by polyhydroxyalkanoates production
Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) are biodegradable polymers with renewable origin that are expected to substitute conventional petrochemical plastics. However, before they are commercialized, life-cycle environmental validation ...
Unraveling the environmental impacts of bioactive compounds and organic amendment from grape marc
In a society that produces large amounts of solid waste, the search for new methods of valorisation has led to the development of techniques that make it possible to obtain new products from waste. In the case of bio-waste, ...
Pursuing the route to eco-efficiency in dairy production: The case of Galician area
The search for more efficient and sustainable processes has become the cornerstone of any production system. It is within this framework that it is highly relevant to propose improvement actions based on a detailed ...
BECCS based on bioethanol from wood residues: Potential towards a carbon-negative transport and side-effects
Bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) is gaining broad interest as an effective strategy to go beyond carbon neutrality. So far, most of the work on BECCS focused on power systems, while its application to the ...
