Center of Waste Management and Bioenergy
Mission and Objectives
The Center’s activities are focused on research into waste to value technologies and the development of renewable energy, particularly bioenergy, applying and incorporating engineering concepts. The main research topics of our Center are: Search for new raw materials for energy production; Biotechnological, chemical and thermal processes for biofuel development; and the Development of materials and waste reutilization technologies.
The Center will focus its activities on the use of waste as a raw material and a source of energy, as well as research in the areas of biodiesel, biogas, biohydrogen, biochar and synthesis gas production, including new bio-resources for use as raw materials and alternative production processes in a bio-refinery designed for the recovery and use of by-products.
