The conference aims to bring together the best practices in the field of MAEPs utilization as a foundation of the circular economy and to serve as a forum for exchange and share of high-value knowledge between the science and business. The conference covers different aspects of plants application with special emphasis on production and marketing of high value added products, MAEPs as source of biologically active substances, utilization as functional foods, technologies for treatment of MAEPs, waste minimization and valorization of MAEPs processing, etc.
In addition to the scientific program, the Organizers hope that the participants will have the opportunity to enjoy the visit and the possibility to feel the atmosphere of the beautiful ancient city of Plovdiv, the 2019 European Capital of Culture!
