Research to improve biogas production from brewery and gourd sludge by applying iron nanoparticles wrapped in carbon, OPS. 

BIOCOPS research project consists of improving the production of biogas from brewery and pumpkin sludge by applying Zero valence iron nanoparticles encapsulated in a carbon matrix (also called OPS), obtained from a residue from the manufacture of olive oil (vegetable water).

The team of researchers for the project is made up of personnel from the Technological Research Institute and the Rafael Mariño Chair of New Energy Technologies of the Higher Technical School of Engineering (ICAI) together with the collaboration of SMALLOPS.
