Biotechnologies for sustainable production of bio-based commodities and specialty products in a cardoon-based biorefinery

Structure

DURATION

24 months

BUDGET

€ 300.000

FUNDING

€ 300.000

Project mission

The project aims at optimizing the use of industrial by-products and wastewaters as growth substrates for plant cell cultures and improving their growth in economically and environmentally sustainable conditions to evaluate the establishment of a
cardoon-based cell bio-factory in line with the principles of Circular Economy. Wild type and modified cell cultures will ensure a continuous supply of cardoon-based added value bioproducts to the industry, complementing field-produced cardoon biomass. Moreover, the proposed research activities are intended to develop knowledge and technical toolkits for genome editing in cardoon and related species, such as globe artichoke.
