Food Waste Valorisation for Sustainable Chemicals, Materials and Fuels (EUBis)


Working Group Leader: Dr Apostolis Koutinas
Working Group Deputy: Dr. Katerina Stamatelatou

The aim of this WG is to explore the science and technology surrounding the breakdown and transformation of plant-derived FSCW biowastes using biocatalysts (enzymes) and microorganisms.


  • To scope existing and new methodologies for bio-processing of FSCW
  • To identify major added-value products (chemicals, materials and fuels) to be produced from FSCW (product-driven biorefining)

  • To demonstrate the most promising FW valorisation processes at a larger scale
