June 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- When CreAgri began working with the juice of olives and the by-products resulting from the milling of the olives used for the production of olive oil, the idea that agricultural by-products
could have a market value, and above all applications in health and wellness, seemed a far-fetched belief.
It ranges from agricultural by-products
such as sugarcane waste, grain husks, palm oil waste and fruit pulp, animal by-products such as manure and slaughterhouse waste, to even municipal wastes such as food waste, sewage sludge etc.
It is powered by the newest Nano-VpCI technology, primarily made from agricultural by-products
, and has been described as quick and super easy to use, there being no special equipment for application.

Development and construction of utility facilities pyrolyzer - machine dispensing equipment for processing of agricultural by-products
Their usage has eased the utilization of many agricultural by-products
and improved the palatability of diets.
The topics include the valorization of agricultural by-products
in poly(lactic acid) to develop biocomposites, hemp and hemp-based composites, bast fiber composites for structural engineering applications, a weathering study of biofiber-based green composites, potential biomedical applications of renewable nanocellulose, and vegetable oils for green composites.
The programme team is particularly interested in the potential of micro-algae, which thrive in the seas of Namibia, as well as biogas from the anaerobic digestion of agricultural by-products
and food wastes, and pure Jatropha oil from the Jatropha curcas plant, which can be used directly to power CHP generators," said Omoregie.
The EPA also requires that biodiesel feedstocks only come from wastes and existing agricultural by-products
This mycelium grows around agricultural by-products
like buckwheat husks, oat hulls or cotton burrs to any shape.
Joining the consortium will speed up Purac's programme to use alternative non-food substrates such as agricultural by-products
instead of sugars, glucose and tapioca starch as substrates for its fermentation processes.
According to the company, its products are manufactured from rapidly renewable or reclaimed agricultural by-products
and low-or no-added urea formaldehyde adhesives.
