Research projects

Sustainable up-cycling of agro-, agrofood and fisheries residues in horticulture and agriculture as bioenergy, biochar and chitin-rich products

We work (further) on residual flows from agro, agri-food and fishery activities, which are processed into compost, plant fibers, biochar and chitin. The final goal is to come up with technically sound and economically interesting cultivation substrates, in collaboration with a number of partners who contribute their practical knowledge.

It is therefore not easy to get a picture of the fishery per country, per fish stock and per fishing area. That is why ILVO developed the GEOFISH tool (
