EXCornsEED participated in the International Congress of Circular Bioeconomy 2021, organized by the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA), in collaboration with the INNOVAGRO Network.

The main objective of the congress has been to promote the circular bioeconomy in Latin America as a framework to design a strategy to face the food security challenge, the post-Covid-19 socioeconomic reactivation and the adaptation to climate change.

In this unique framework, CTA presented the aim and the objectives of EXCornsEED, and how the consortium is working in order to develop and validate extraction, purification and concentration technologies applicable to biorefineries to extract proteins and other bioactive compounds from the secondary effluents for later use as ingredients in foods, chemicals and cosmetics.
