We are looking for strong partners from the socio-economic sector, for setting up an holistic approach for the improvement of the resilience of small farms across the mediterranean area. We can offer plenty of technological and scientific ideas to cope with the circularization of small farms and in a broader sense, of the agrifood sector. Our expertise is based on the exploitation of biomasses with different technology approaches, depending on the case: biogas production, gasification, pyrolisis and fertilizer production (COMBI, composting process resulting in biologically activated biochar). All of our technologies are carbon negative and can be effectively tested on field to assess the circularization and the reduction of GHG emission of different farming models across the mediterranean area.
What we are looking for someone able to translate our ideas into a socio-economical approach. Indeed, we are technology and sustainability provider, but we recognize the primary role of socio-economics aspects for these kind of calls. We would like to share ideas and/or to be involved in projects as technology providers in terms of sustainability, biomass exploitation and animal farming . We are able to provide ideas and technology for the reduction of GHG emission together with the improvement of the resilience of small farming model, considering different crops and different animals farming.
Our approach is to analyze every single farming model and to suggest holistic approaches for its resilience improvement, GHG emission reduction and implementation of carbon negative technologies, combining different technologies for a tailored solution apllicable to each case.
DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ORGANISATION:
The laboratory is part of the Department of Engineering "Enzo Ferrari" of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia. BEELab is originated form the experience fully grown in the last ten-year period by the thermo-fluid-dynamic research group. BEELab is focused on research and scientific support services on renewable energies related topics:
- Technological circularization of the agrifood sector
- Carbon negative technologies
- Kinetic simulation of the gasification process
- Biomass chemical and physical characterization for thermal treatment
- Biomass chemical and physical characterization for anaerobic digestion
- Biomass power plant design
- Co-composting process simulation
- Co-composting facilities design
- Feasibility analysis of different plants, given the combination of different
- Economical evaluation of power plant ROI, biomass supply and storage
At the moment, we have project ideas to share, but we need partners from socio-economic organization and no-profit organizations/bodies for integrating our ideas with local social issues. Technology is just a provider of opportunities, but for us it is fundamental to apply our solution with a humanistic approach thinking of a new model wich would be able to facilitate the approach of the younger generation to the agrifood sector while bringing added value to local communities.
The Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area will devise new R&I approaches to improve water availability and sustainable agriculture production in a region heavily distressed by climate change, urbanisation and population growth
