• El consorcio ‘Usos innovadores de la cascarilla del arroz’ liderado por los investigadores del CSIC de Sevilla y Aljafaresa, ha sido el equipo más votado en el Rice Straw Accelerathon Startup Europe Awards
  • Expertos de Finnova ayudarán al ganador a redactar el proyecto para presentarlo a la convocatoria Life optando hasta 2 millones de euros de subvención

Bruselas, 01 de julio 2020 – El Equipo 5: Usos innovadores de la cascarilla del arroz liderado por los investigadores del CSIC de Sevilla, Tomás Undabeytia y José María de la Rosa, en cooperación con José Antonio Escalona de la empresa de agua, Aljarafesa se han convertido en los ganadores del Rice Straw Startup Europe Accelerathon organizado por el Ayuntamiento de Coria del Río (Sevilla) e implementado por la Fundación Finnova.

 “Muchas gracias por la oportunidad. Queremos agradecer a Finnova y al Ayuntamiento de Coria esta oportunidad porque podremos llegar a más gente como agricultores y cooperativas”, ha expresado Tomas Undabeytia, integrante del equipo ganador, quien lleva trabajando en su reto junto con su compañero José María de las Rosas, desde hace más de una semana. Ahora, el objetivo es evitar la quema de la paja del arroz y convertir este residuo en un recurso, fomentando así la economía circular. “Coria del Rio tiene una preocupación y un compromiso necesario para resolver un problema que con el paso del tiempo se ha ido acrecentando y que tenemos que tratar de resolver entre todos”, ha afirmado, Modesto González, alcalde de Coria del Rio.

Este martes 30 de junio se celebró la final del Accelerathon Rice Straw Startup Europe Awards con la participación del jurado, los cuatro equipos finalistas, y más de 3000 personas alcanzadas en Facebook.  Durante la ceremonia, retransmitida en directo en línea y Facebook Live, cada uno de los equipos presentó su proyecto en un pitch y fue sometido a una doble valoración. Por un lado, un jurado formado por 13 expertos analizó las propuestas de cada equipo; su valoración se correspondió con el 80 % de la puntación global. El 20 % restante equivale a los más de 90 votos del público oyente.

Tras el veredicto del jurado, el equipo ganador obtuvo un ticket europeo de aceleración otorgado por Startup Europe Accelerator para presentar el 14 de julio el proyecto al programa LIFE de la DG ENVIRONMENT de la Comisión Europea.  Asimismo, el proyecto ganador participará en los Startup Europe Awards y también estará presente en el Smart Agrifood Summit que se celebrará en Málaga los próximos 24 y 25 de septiembre. Este último constituye un evento líder en la industria para la creación de ecosistemas innovadores dentro del sector agroalimentario europeo.

El proyecto del equipo 5: Usos innovadores de la cascarilla del arroz tiene como objetivo la valorización de la cascarilla del arroz como medio filtrante para la eliminación de contaminantes de agua. Así como transformar un recurso agrícola sin apenas aprovechamiento como es la cascarilla del arroz, en carbón activo, un producto activo de alto valor añadido y que se puede usar en cosméticos u otros.

Las ventajas de este proyecto son económicas porque producen un producto a precio de mercado razonable; tecnológicas porque eliminan la aplicación de agentes químicos activantes que son perjudiciales para el medio ambiente y un riesgo para el trabajador; y por supuesto, ambientales ya que se evitaría la quema de la paja del arroz.

Desde este miércoles, 1 de julio hasta el próximo martes, 14 de julio, los expertos en fondos europeos de la Fundación Finnova mentorizarán al equipo ganador y le ayudarán con la redacción del proyecto para presentarlo a la convocatoria del programa Life.

El programa cuenta con el soporte institucional de la DG CONNECT de la Comisión Europea y sigue las indicaciones de los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible de Naciones Unidas con el firme propósito de apoyar su visibilidad y objetivos:

· ODS 7: Energía asequible y no contaminante

· ODS 9: Industria, innovación e infraestructura

· ODS 12: Producción y consumo responsables

· ODS 13: Acción por el clima

· ODS 15: Vida y ecosistemas terrestres

· ODS 17: Alianzas para lograr los objetivos
