Partnership between Wikifarmer and Bio-LUSH
Wikifarmer is always interested in building partnerships with organizations, universities, institutions, and projects worldwide. Our main goal is to democratize agriculture; we believe networking can help us achieve this. Wikifarmer and Bio-LUSH are working together to promote new technologies in agriculture and sustainability.
Bio-LUSH – HORIZON EUROPE project
Bio-LUSH project aims to demonstrate a reliable value chain that exploit the cell wall structure of underexplored plant resources (forest residues, marine plants and weeds) in Europe to extract high quality fibres. The plant selection, combined with traditional breeding, efficient valorisation routes and products specific tuning of fibre properties supported by advanced fibre characterisation will ensure high value fibres with short term potential for market entry, directed towards sustainable biobased products as textiles, food packaging and reinforced composites. The project will contribute to the retention of value of the EU’s fibrous biomass and the growth of European fibrous bioeconomy for revitalizing marginal areas and rural areas suffering from desertification or experiencing socio-economic difficulties. The extended and circular use of the plant biomass will also contribute to decarbonization and reduced eutrofication.
