The skin of an apple is generally discarded during the production of jams and juices. Apple skin is characterised by several properties because it is rich in sugars, cellulose and waxes. In Italy, the Trentino Alto Adige region is the main producer of apples, contributing to 65% of the national production. 10 tonnes of apple waste are produced in one year. It is recognised here that the re-use of apple skin from waste can significantly decrease agro-industrial waste and can be used as a second-generation bioeconomy feedstock.
The BioArt Gallery presents the most promising feedstock and its related bioeconomy applications in everyday life with 60 stunning pictures. It offers an innovative approach of showcasing to the public some examples of bio-based products and applications currently available in the market through several examples: cosmetics, nutraceutics, tissues, toys and sport, disposable tableware, cleaning products, gadgets, and much more.
The BioArt Gallery has been displayed to the public in severall incredible venues throughout Europe, and now BIOVOICES makes it available to you through an interactive digital platform!
