    (ANSAmed) - TUNIS, MAY 25 - Bio-sustainability of production systems, the valorization of waste and energy efficiency are sectors on which research for innovative solutions has focused over the past decade. These themes are at the center of the workshop "Bio-sustainability applied to the food and environmental sectors", organized by Italian trade agency ICE in Tunis, in cooperation with the Italian embassy, which was organized on Wednesday at the Sheraton Hotel in Tunis.

    The event was dedicated to Italian companies that mean to start a commercial, industrial and technological cooperation with Tunisian counterparts, both private and public, in the sectors in discussion.

    Seven Italian companies and organizations are attending. They are interested in developing contacts in Tunisia and specialized in recycling and treating waste and preserving in a bio-sustainable way food products and ecosystems. The conference was opened by Italian Ambassador Lorenzo Fanara, followed by a speech of the director of ICE's Tunis office, Donatella Iaricci, who illustrated the aim of the initiative to develop joint projects in a context of bio-economy. The panel of speakers included representatives of Tunisian and Italian institutions, including Samia Maamar, director general for organic agriculture of the agriculture ministry, Badreddine Lasmar, director general of ANGED (National agency for waste management) and Andrea Senatori, director of AICS (Italian agency for cooperation to development). Also interesting were speeches dedicated to research with the contribution of the center of Borj Cédria, Italian Cluster AGRIFOOD, ANPR - Tunisian national research agency and contributions of companies from both countries that are developing solutions based on circular production processes and the use of secondary raw materials.

    Italy and Tunisia can activate joint collaborations, especially at the level of businesses that intend to work for a circular and efficient production system. "The seven Italian small and medium-sized companied we selected - said the director of ICE Agenzia Tunisi in a statement - can set this example of cooperation if they succeed in intercepting Tunisian partners.

    We count a lot on the success of the event through B2B to take place after the conference".(ANSAmed). (ANSA).
