Agricultural-food residues are an underexploited resource for the European Union and China and by making better use of these can bring significant economic, environmental and societal benefits.
AgriLoop is a major European Union, UK Research and Innovation and Chinese-funded project finding new ways to convert agricultural-food residues into high-value, eco-friendly products, such as food and feed ingredients and bio-based materials.
35 partners across Europe and China, are joining forces in AgriLoop to increase agricultural sustainability, grow the bioeconomy and tackle climate change and plastic pollution and increase European / Chinese cooperation.
