Welcome to URBIOFIN!

URBIOFIN is an innovation project funded by the Bio Based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU) under the EU Horizon 2020 programme and coordinated by PERSEO BIOTECHNOLOGY S.L. (PERSEO).
The aim of the URBIOFIN project is to demonstrate techno-economic and environmental viability of an integrated and innovative biorefinery for the transformation of the organic fraction of municipal solid waste (MSW) into new marketable bioproducts, chemical building blocks, biopolymers and additives.
This Project has received funding from the Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement Nº 745785
