The main objective of GREENBIOREFINERY is to develop new strategies to generate bioproducts with the integration of both the brewery wastes’ treatment and the production of microalgal biomass, enhancing this way the economic and environmental sustainability of the process as a whole. This integration will enable the transformation of these wastes of the brewery industry into biomass of interest. This will allow not only the reduction of the environmental impact of beer fabrication processes, but also a recovery of the nutrients (C, N, P) contained in the wastes and their conversion to high-value compounds. To achieve this objective, the wastes produced will be characterised to be used as feedstock into the microalgae’s production by previously selected companies. Finally, the developed technology will be escalated to pilot-scale with 1m3 photobiorreactors to validate and assess the process as a whole. As a result, we aims to develop flexible and adaptable processes of integral exploitation of the microalgal biomass which could be applicable in different breweries taking into account local necessities and possibilities.
