MIDAS adopts a resource-efficient biorefinery concept to develop a wide range of bio-based products, obtained from innovative value chains and from diverse biomass feedstock produced on marginal land.

Oilseeds from annual crops (castor, crambe, safflower and carinata) are used to produce biodegradable mulch films, bio-lubricants and bio stimulants.

Hemp, sorghum, miscanthus, willow and siberian elm are used to produce MDF panels, particle boards, biochar and nanocarbons.

Speciality crops (guayule and lavender) are used to produce rubber for car tyres, latex for gloves, adhesives and coatings.
