BIOpolymers from agri-food waste digestates for SMART release bioFERTilisers

In the circular economy approach, the BIOSMARTFERT project aims to define the production chain of a new generation of renewable biofertilisers with a modulated release, defined below as SMART release FERTilisers (SRF), derived from digestate of biowaste. First, the granule part of the SRF will be produced from an anaerobic biorefinery by treating agri-food wastes. Then they will be encapsulated and covered with degradable biopolymers such as polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA), also produced by anaerobic biorefinery.
