Online event - Halophytes go circular! 22.03.2022, 16:00 – 17:30 CET, on ZOOM

Project insights and results of AQUACOMBINE circular approach.

50% more food – 40% more energy and 30% more water by 2030. That’s fact. Another fact is that the increasing soil salinity becomes major challenge. So, how to deal with the world’s demand for sustainably produced biomass?

AQUACOMBINE project can be one answer!

AQUACOMBINE project will create a new circular industry with co-production of food, feed, bio compounds, and bioenergy from salt-tolerant plants such as Salicornia or Crithmum with very little or no production of waste streams.

AQUACOMBINE´s approach combines aquaculture, farming and bioprocessing to utilize all fractions of the produced biomass and produce value added HCAs (hydroxycinnamic acids), functional fish feed and bioenergy.

You are interest in AQUACOMBINE results?

Meet the project on 22.03.2022, 16:00 – 17:30 CET, on ZOOM and get:

  • an answer to: “How to cultivate salt-tolerant plants species such as Salicornia or Crithmum to obtain high yields for biorefinery processes?’”
  • a view at: “Promising results on health effects for shrimp and sea bass by combining aquaculture and Salicornia farming”, and
  • an answer to: “How to close the loop of the halophyte biorefinery by conversion into biogas and biochar?”

Take part and join the presentations. If you want to go one step ahead and like to share your experience and needs with us, participate also in the breakout sessions:

  • Halophyte cultivation
  • Aquaculture farming
  • Halophyte biorefinery
