Brazilian - German Workshop InVaKaS
Fruit production is resource-intensive and therefore calls urgently for more sustainable practices, for instance, through the circular use of biomass. The residues of fruits hold potential for further use and valorization e.g. as feed for livestock, for the extraction of antioxidants, as a nutrient for enzyme or biogas production or as a source of dietary fiber and specialty chemicals. The one week “InVaKaS” workshop with experts from Brazil and Germany, intends to map the value chain and to develop new research ideas for valorization and cascade use contributing to the sustainability transition of value chains. The workshop takes place from 20.3. to 26.3.2023 in Bahia, Brazil. One day - Tuesday, 21.03.2023 – will be organized as a hybrid event and welcomes every person interested in this topic. The workshop language will be English.
