We are happy to announce that OLEOFERM research project from the ERANET-CoBioTech network, led by the Biotechnological Process Unit of IMDEA Energy, has been launched recently. OLEOFERM deals with the sustainable biotechnological conversion of organic wastes to short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) and the further transformation of these SCFAs into microbial oils, thus it is strongly related to the activity of the Yeast4Bio Cost Action. The success of OLEOFERM is guaranteed by a multidisciplinary consortium with high expertise for setting cutting-edge and innovative solutions for microbial oils production, including the Université Clermont-Auvergne and the company BIOVALO in France and Jožef Stefan Institute Molecular and Biomedical Sciences and the University of Ljubljana from Slovenia.

Congratulation for the novel research project and for the strong consortium including many members of our Cost Action!
