Webinar: Sustainable farming — waste management and energy efficiency | JULY 2 | 10.00 – 11.00 (CET)
Co-facilitated by partners: Lombardy Energy Cleantech Cluster (LE2C) and ZINNAE.
Speaker SME: Costantino Papadakis from KAPA engineering.

VIDA – Value added Innovation in fooD chAins, aims to accelerate the implementation of new solutions in the food sector which improve the usage of water and energy with the ambition to reduce losses and consumption. VIDA has three different funding schemes to support small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) seeking new resource efficient solutions.

This event belongs to VIDA strategy to organising ten networking and business brokerage virtual events so to showcase SME solutions in pitch-style and encourage SME to present their approaches to tackling VIDA challenges; and supports the creation of transnational consortia for Demonstration Vouchers (which requires the collaboration of min 2 SME).

Each Webinar is addressing one of the VIDA agrofood sector and their challenges (i.e. farming, breweries, wineries, meat industry, fisheries, soy/milk industry, and sugar processing industry, among others).

At this webinar, the challenge-owner KAPA engineering will speak about manure management for chicken farming once when

The disposal of the manure is a major inconvenience for chicken farmers, who have to store the manure and then send it to the waste to energy plants. Disposal of the manure costs the European states more than 2 billion euros in transport; the disposal cycle releases 25 million tons of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. The direct use of manure in fields can alter the chemical and saline balances of soils. Their project is an innovative system of treatment of wet agricultural waste that can be implemented by any agro-SME and produce electricity without the use of traditional machines, intended for an operation on an industrial scale.

KAPA engineering is looking for an SME partner that deals with the storage and stabilization of electricity produced by their innovative system (batteries, inverters, etc.).

After the challenge introduction, SMEs interested to speak about solutions for waste management towards energy-efficient exploitations in food value-chain will be invited to join and pitch their innovative solutions. The questions and answers will follow as introduction to upcoming Second Demonstration Voucher Call in August and Milan Brokerage Event in September 2019.
