"The future needs circular and bio-based production systems". CBIO - Aarhus University's Centre for Circular Bioeconomy – has got a new centre leader. Associate Professor Morten Ambye-Jensen has taken over the position from Professor Uffe Jørgensen, who has headed the centre since its establishment in 2017. For almost six years, CBIO has made ground-breaking results in resource management of biomasses and the centre is growing.
The Aarhus University CBIO - Centre for Circular Bioeconomy – has now existed for 5 years. CBIO is today well known and has already created considerable impact on business and society. Come and hear how CBIO has developed through past and new interdisciplinary collaboration projects for the implementation of circular bioeconomy in the green transition. From this year, CBIO has been extended with two new AU members, who will present themselves.
During the next four years researchers from Department of Food Science at Aarhus University will be a part of a new EU project, VALPRO Path. The project aims to examine and develop a sustainable, circular, and transparent production and processing of plant protein as a substitute for animal protein in Europe.
Denmark will be the pioneering country for sustainable industrial insect production for food and feed. This is the goal of a new project in which…
Agriculture accounts for a large share of global greenhouse gas emissions, and the path to carbon neutrality is not straightforward. Researchers from Land-CRAFT - Center for Landscape Research in Sustainable Agricultural Futures at Aarhus University and others have, through a comprehensive life cycle analysis of data from China, identified an integrated biomass pyrolysis and electricity generation system coupled with commonly applied methane and nitrogen mitigation measures that, together with the right management of agricultural land, can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions from Chinese staple crops.
At Aarhus University, 16 researchers are developing a sustainable technology that, using biomass and sunlight, will capture and break down perpetual chemicals in one single and simple step.
A new digital tool can help farmers plan weed control with reduced pesticide use. The IWM Tool is one of the results of IWMPraise, a six-year European project on integrated weed management.
