Collaborative project by Spanish and Portuguese R&D centers to develop a multiproduct biorefinery from by-products and residues of the wine producing industry.

The aim of Biovino project is to increase the scientific excellence in the cross-border regions of Castilla y León, Galicia and the North and Center regions of Portugal. The project establishes the theoretical and technical basis to allow the implementation of a biorefinery platform designed to valorise by-products and residues of the wine industry; most of them currently underutilized.

To reach this objective, innovative R&D lines combining the use of green technologies for extraction, production and purification have been designed. These will allow the transformation of by-products and other residues of the wine industry into multiple inputs to sustain a biorefinery in an eco-sustainable way.
