Year 2 in Review

What a year! The BBTWINS team is thrilled to share our annual 'year in review' video summarising all the breakthroughs of Year 2 of the project. Highlights include multiple in-person collaborations across Spain among partners, developing more advanced methods of traceability, successful testing of waste stream technologies, and the uploading of vast amounts of bio-based information to create the data lake.

LCA Milestone Reached

At the end of the 27th month of the BBTWINS journey, our partner ANGAZ updates us about the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA): 
  • For peach cultivation, the LCA results have identified major environmental impacts stemming from the consumption of inputs such as fertilizers, water, and diesel. To mitigate these impacts, the project recommends improving fertilization practices, enhancing water use efficiency, and switching to low-emission fuels for agricultural machinery. 
  • Pork production, on the other hand, faces environmental challenges related to animal feed production, electricity consumption, land use for feed crop cultivation, and methane emissions from waste. Mitigation strategies include the substitution of high-impact feed ingredients with more sustainable alternatives,  energy production from waste-generated methane, and effective waste management practices. 
Increased demand for peaches and pork along with rising prices and potential export opportunities are possible benefits for farmers in this case. Valuable insight from our partners dedicated to a holistic approach.
