LIFE BYPROTVAL at Bioket 2022

LIFE Byprotval participated with a presentation in BIOKET 2022 – a key sectorial fair edicated to bio-based solutions and processes, tackling technological, economic and environmental challenges of the bioeconomy. The fair focuses on innovation in processes for biomass conversion using emerging technologies, minimizing waste production and optimizing economics.

During the event, LIFE Byprotval interacted with differents stakeholders that despite the COVID situation was a succeed in delivering a record edition: 384 participants from 23 different countries, 64 exhibitors and 16 Start-ups on our village (80 exhibitors in total), plus our workshops, the innovation tours and all the networking activities (700 prescheduled B2B meetings).

On March 16th, 2022 our colleague Mayra Lacruz - Circular Economy have participated as a speaker at the expert panel 'KETs for a Circular Bioeconomy' with the BYPROTVAL project.

The conference program organized by BIOKET Bioeconomy Key Enabling Technologies platform in #Lille analyzes the future possibilities for #biomass as a source of resources for the promotion of circular economy and #sustainability in production processes.

INESCOP attends FUTURMODA with a 100% sustainable and digital commitment

During October 5th and 6th, 2022 INESCOP will be present at FUTURMODA (stand D26-D28) where it will present innovative and technological solutions for companies to be 100% digital and sustainable, like the LIFE Byprotval project solutions. In addition, it will participate in the Expert Forum with two presentations; one on how to design comfortable and healthy footwear and another where the keys to make the most of the technical office in the cloud will be given.

INESCOP attends the sectorial event with a stand where companies will be able to see first hand the projects that are directly related to two of the R&D lines of the technology center: circular economy and digital industry. INESCOP's commitment in this fair is clear: to support companies to be as productive, competitive and sustainable as possible.


INESCOP has participated from June 15 to 18, 2022 in the 9th International Conference on Solid Waste Management that took place on the island of Corfu, Greece whose objective has been to take a step forward in the field of solid waste management by promoting innovative technologies and effective practices.

Special attention was given to the prospects for the valorization and development of products from solid waste, such as biofuels, compost, materials, etc. The link between applied research and industry was also reinforced by emphasizing the circular economy in all key action areas (production, consumption, waste management, secondary raw materials, innovation, investment and monitoring) and in all priority sectors (food waste, plastics, biomass and bio-based products, construction and demolition waste, critical raw materials).

In session II researcher Dr. Henoc Perez presented the LIFE Byprotval project entitled "Industrial Symbiosis to valorise wastewater derived from rendering plants for different industrial applications" along with other valorization projects focused on circular economy strategies, valorization of food waste, vegetable waste, wastewater, biogas generation, biofertilizers and other types of valorization for other applications.

The CORFU 2022 conference constituted an international event for experts in Sustainable Solid Waste Management with the participation of more than 600 participants from 80 different countries. The congress also has the collaboration of nine international journals of scientific interest with a high impact factor.

In this sense, INESCOP has also contributed with a presentation of a LIFE Superbiodiesel Poster called "Industrial symbiosis to valorise fleshing produced in tannery industry for different industrial applications", number 148, which can be seen in the following link.

The event has served to promote and outline collaboration opportunities for future projects with universities, companies or other technological centers and to know the trends around valorization with different applications.

Inescop presented BYPROTVAL at Momad as a sustainable solution for footwear

More and more companies are committed to sustainable design and production, but applying the principles of the circular economy is not always easy. To help footwear companies in this task, Inescop presented BYPROTVAL during 17 to 19 of September, 2021 at the Momad textile and footwear fair, under the slogan "Green your Shoes with us". In this way, the footwear technology centre showed different innovative and technological solutions that are available to the footwear industry and that facilitate and improve the transformation process towards a circular economy model.

Inescop occupied stand 8A19A, where visitors were able to see first-hand 10 sustainable solutions that any footwear company can implement throughout the value chain that makes up the life cycle of a shoe.

Ana Belén Muñoz, head of the Environment and Sustainability department, gave a talk on sustainability in footwear from a social and environmental perspective. Undoubtedly, sustainability is a great challenge, but "those who bet on this opportunity manage to face crises more solidly, with numerous benefits not only environmental, but also social and economic", says Muñoz.


The LIFE Programme is the only EU financial instrument specifically dedicated to environment and climate action. Its overall objective is to catalyse changes in policy development and implementation, providing solutions and practices to environmental and climate challenges, and promoting innovative technologies.

The LIFE Regulation 2021-2027 has recently been adopted, setting an overall budget for the period 2021-2027 of ¤5,432,000,000. The 2021 call for proposals will be published in the coming days.

The new LIFE Programme will cover four areas: nature and diversity, circular economy and quality of life, mitigation and adaptation to climate change and transition to clean energy.

LIFE BYPROTVAL will be presented as part of the communication of the results of these projects, which is essential for companies and organisations to be aware of new developments in terms of technologies, materials and processes related to the environment, and to be able to take advantage of them on 17th September 2021.

REDIT and Valencia Chamber of Commerce are organising this conference where the National Contact Point of the Ministry for Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge will present the new 2021 call and the participants in previous calls, outstanding results of their LIFE projects.

The conference is aimed at companies, public and private organisations that wish to submit proposals and participate in projects that may receive financial support from the programme.


This project has received funding from the LIFE Programme of the European Union under Grant Agreement LIFE16 ENV/ES/000467.
