Bioplastic from Insects? Discover how, with ValoriBio project

The BIOWAYS project is carrying out a series of videos called  60” Science.
In each video an expert/researcher  will explain a bio-based product or the results of his research.


Giacomo Benassi presents the project ValoriBio – Enhancement of organic waste by obtaining biomaterials for agricultural use – from UNIMORE (Università di Modena e Reggio Emilia)

The organic waste that is thrown into the trash is actually a fundamental resource that we must reuse in an intelligent way. Fortunately, nature has already provided us with an incredibly efficient means of converting organic waste into proteins and fats that are the basic elements for the production of bioplastics.

This fantastic element is represented by insects!

The VALORIBIO project aims at the alternative use and sustainable exploitation of zootechnical waste and other organic waste through the “soldier flies” for the production of biodegradable bioplastics for agricultural use.
