The Composting Research Group (GICOM) from the Department of Chemical Engineering at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, was created in 2000 with a clear objective: the study of the composting process as a sustainable technology for the biological treatment of organic waste. Currently, without forgetting composting, the group’s research focuses on the production of  bioproducts through Solid State Fermentation of organic wastes. Finally, we also focuse on the world of nanotechnology and the environment.
