The Department Of Engineering of the University of Perugia will promote and coordinate the project through the Sustainable Energy System Laboratory – SESLAB (

The research carried out at the SESLAB will focus on sustainable energy conversion systems and small and micro-generation from biomass and waste. Activities include experimentation, laboratory-scale characterisation, design and creation of prototypes, numerical simulation, and analysis of the environmental impact on the life cycle through LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) techniques.

SESLAB will create the software for planning and transferring the supply chain with LCA techniques, as well as a database of the biomethanisation characteristics of 100 types of food waste.
