AgroForWealth aims to develop a strategy for the valorization of a multitude of agro-food and forest residues within the emerging circular economy concept, calling upon a well-defined set of common and integrated biorefinery approaches implementable in a single unit, and easily extended to any type of by-product, and to creat new products with nutraceutical added value, contributing to add value to these key sectors of the Portuguese economy.
