About us

BIOWAFER is a research project supported by the EU from POR FESR Emilia-Romagna 2014-2020 funds. It aims to the enhancement of agricultural by-products and co-products through the development of biorefineries and innovative extraction processes, for the production of chemical compounds and materials that could be used in cosmetic and pharmaceutical sectors.
This is a multi- and inter-disciplinary project, and it involves both Scientific (accredited laboratories) and Industry (member companies) Partners. Among the latter, there are several representatives of some of the most relevant supply chains of Emilia-Romagna (industrial tomato, wine, cheese), as well as dermatologic and cosmetic companies which are constantly looking for high-quality raw materials of natural origin.
