CLOSING EVENT OF THE LIFE+VALPORC PROJECT

The main objective of the LIFE+VALPORC project has been to demonstrate a sustainable alternative to the management of pig carcasses and manure, addressing the environmental problems of their current management and valorizing these wastes through their transformation into biofuels (biogas and biodiesel) and organic fertilizers. During the event, EGA presented the LIFE-BYPROTVAL project as a continuation of the finished project, as its objective is to give an additional value to the meals obtained in the LIFE VALPORC by means of their enzymatic hydrolysis to obtain a protein concentrate rich in amino acids.
