On September 30 and October 1, the Bioazul team attended the Smart Agrifood Summit fair that took place at FYCMA (Malaga). In its fourth edition, Smart Agrifood has gathered more than 1,600 professional visitors from 32 countries. This event has also had a content program where more than 200 experts in the transformation of the agri-food sector have gathered and has brought together more than 350 companies, of which more than 70 have had a presence in the exhibition area. Within this program of activities Antonia Lorenzo, CEO of Bioazul, opened the Water and Sustainability Forum together with Gonzalo Delacámara, researcher at IMDEA Water, where they held an interesting colloquium on innovation in the circular economy and the reuse of water applied to the food industry.
On the other hand, within the exhibition area of the fair Bioazul had a stand dedicated to our Water2REturn project where the team presented the system developed and implemented in Matadero del Sur (Salteras, Seville) for the recovery and recycling of nutrients, converting wastewater into agronomic products.
On September 30, Biaozul also organized, as a parallel event to the fair, the Water2REturn Workshop Spain with the aim of presenting the Water2REturn system as well as the quality and effectiveness of the resulting agronomic products. The workshop was a hybrid event where we got around 40 attendees between face-to-face and remotely. Among the workshop participants were farmers, the irrigation community, consumer associations and workers from the agricultural sector.
