A new EU project, Model2Bio, is set to develop a pioneering tool to predicts bio-based residual streams generated in the agri-food industry and to identify best routes for reusing this waste. The tool will be tested and validated for sectors such as meat, vegetables, dairy and alcoholic beverages in Spain, Belgium, Netherlands and Greece.

Model2Bio will put forward a solution classified as a Decision-Support System, a rule base decision approach based on mathematical models, logic rules, cost functions and restriction. As a predictive simulation software, the tool will take into account the physicochemical characteristics of the bio-based residual streams in the agri-food sector and their utility depending on social, economic, environmental and regulatory criteria of the geographical area.

The project was launched in May 2020 and includes participants from Centro Tecnológico de la Industria Cárnica y Centro de Innovación y Tecnología Alimentaria de España (CTIC-CITA); the Engineering Faculty of the Universidad de Navarra (Tecnum); Wageningen Food & Biobased Research (WFBR), the Belgian scientific and technical support centre CELABOR; the Cluster of Bioeconomy and Environment of Western Macedonia (CluBE); CLUSTER FOOD+I Association; agri-food industry Flanders’ FOOD cluster; the engineering and consultancy company from Poland IZNAB; the European Science Communication Institute (ESCI) and the Waste Management Company of Western Macedonia (DIADYMA).
