Digitalising pork value chain

This video presents how BBTWINS has been optimising the availability, quality, resource efficiency, and economic performance of PORTESA’s feedstock production, improving batch traceability both internally and for end consumers, the logistics of their internal production chain, the valorisation of waste streams, and the modelling of physical and chemical food processes affecting quality and efficiency.

Digital twin transitions in agri-food

This webinar presents concrete examples of the benefits of implementing a digital twin tool to enhance decision-making in agri-food value chains and presents the role of blockchain technology in ensuring traceability and transparency in these systems. Listen to experts share their insights on advanced AI-supported models, blockchain, and complex data management systems and their application within the agri-food sector.

Rethinking agri-food logistics

Ruben Guisson and Annelies De Meyer from VITO discuss logistics models for the BBTWINS project, comparing different transportation methods and their impact on productivity, congestion, and emissions, as well as describe the broader applicability of these methodologies in other sectors.

Innovative waste valorisation in agri-food

Andre Ribeiro, Senior Researcher at CVR, explains the innovative waste valorisation process his research brings to the two case studies of BBTWINS; the pork and peach industries, and the possibilities this could bring to the European agri-food sector.

Benefits of waste valorisation for the agri-food sector

Andre Ribeiro introduces the concept of waste valorisation. The Senior Researcher at CVR in Portugal explains the core of his work and how the waste valorisation of bio-based side streams can reduce pressure on resources and help build a future for the zero waste generation.

Creating resource-efficient value chains

Member of the Advisory Board Dr. Luis Pinto Ferreira introduces himself and shares his outlook on sustainable innovations in the bio-based economy. Specialising in digital twin technology, the prize-winning Portuguese professor brings valuable insight to the project, overseeing the development of the BBTWINS digital twin.

Cutting-edge agri-food technologies in practice

From improving the digital twin and researching the valorisation of waste streams to developing AI vision applications and using blockchain to create a traceability platform, a lot of progress towards the digitalisation of agri-food value chains was made in the second year of the BBTWINS project.

Digitalisation creating new opportunities in agriculture

Christina Blachava is an Agronomist at Dimitra, an agricultural cooperative in Greece. She explains how BBTWINS can help improve supply chains, making transportation and production more efficient, and making agri-food businesses more environmentally and economically sustainable.

New mentalities for the agri-food industry

Yannis Fallas, Director of the Cluster of Bioeconomy and Environment of Western Macedonia (CLuBE) discusses how BBTWINS can bring modern digital technologies to a historically traditional industry.

Preparing agri-food industries for the future

David Gonzalez from PANOimagen discusses the challenges facing agri-food industries as they move towards the future, and how BBTWINS can offer digital solutions that help businesses understand how to become more efficient, more sustainable, and more profitable.

How digital twins benefit people, planet, and business

José María Alonso, Head of Research and Development at Soltec Ingenieros and Daniel Prieto, Co-founder/CEO of Norlean, present their proprietary digital twin cloud platform NOA and explain how the combination of new technologies are enabling companies to take decisions and make predictions that benefit people, planet and profit.

Valorising waste through digitalisation

Jorge Araújo from the Centre for Waste Valorisation (CVR), explains how their research on valorising waste from the BBTWINS case studies opens the way for food value chains to become resource-efficient and circular.

Digitalisation for more efficient supply chains

Annelies de Meyer and Ruben Guisson from VITO discuss the implications of increased digitalisation on logistics and supply chains.

Digital twins bridge bioeconomy and agri-food sectors

Toni Lastusilta from VTT explains how they are using their expertise in mathematical modelling to help develop digital twins that can optimise agri-food value chains.

Preparing our agri-food case studies for digitalisation

Work is well underway to developing our digital twins for two use cases in the agri-food sector!

Increasing traceability in food production with digital twins

Sergio Ramos from Portesa discusses how digitalisation is integral to the future of food industries.

How digital twins are reshaping food industries

Learn from BBTWINS Project Coordinator Daniel de la Puente from CTIC-CITA about how the project’s digital twins can help reshape food industries.
