The present invention relaters to a method for continuously preparing a nano zinc oxide with a membrane reactor. A zinc salt solution and a precipitator solution required for the preparation of a zinc oxide are respectively used as dispersion phases, and under the action of a certain pressure, the two reaction solutions respectively penetrate through a membrane tube at a certain rate and disperse quickly under the action of a shear force and react, producing a precursor precipitate. A precursor suspension penetrates through the membrane tube continuously and circularly after being pressurized by a pump, and at the same time, deionized water as a washing fluid is added to a suspension storage tank, wherein impurity ions penetrate through membrane pores and are discharged along with the liquid medium; after the concentration of the impurity ions meets requirements, the concentrated solution is discharged continuously and then spray-dried to obtain a basic zinc carbonate precursor powder. The basic zinc carbonate powder is calcined under certain conditions to obtain the nanostructured zinc oxide powder. The continuous preparation and washing of a powder can be achieved by coupling a membrane washing technique with a membrane dispersion technique. The procedure is simple, the structure of zinc oxide is easy to control and the yield is high.

Continuing population and consumption growth are driving global food demand, with agricultural activity increasing to keep pace. Europe has a major agricultural waste problem, generating some 700 million tonnes of waste annually. There is an urgent need and huge opportunity to address the efficient use of agricultural wastes, co-products and by-products (AWCB) towards delivering sustainable value chains in the farming and processing sectors. As such, AgroCycle will convert low value agricultural waste into highly valuable products, achieving a 10% increase in waste recycling and valorisation by 2020. This will be achieved by developing a detailed and holistic understanding of the waste streams and piloting a key number of waste utilisation/valorisation pathways. It will bring technologies and systems from ~TRL4 to ~TRL7 within the 3 years of the project. A post-project commercialisation plan will bring commercially promising technologies/systems to TRL8 and TRL9, ensuring AgroCycle will have an enduring impact by achieving sustainable use of AWCB both inside and outside the agricultural sector, leading to the realisation of a Circular Economy. AgroCycle addresses wastes from several agricultural sectors: wine, olive oil, horticulture, fruit, grassland, swine, dairy and poultry. The AgroCycle consortium is a large (25) multi-national group (including China) comprising the necessary and relevant multi-actors (i.e. researchers; companies in the technical, manufacturing, advisory, retail sectors (Large and SMEs); lead users; end users; and trade/producer associations) for achieving the projects ambitions goals. Farmings unique regional (rural) location means that AgroCycle will help reduce the EUs Innovation Divide and address the Regional Smart Specialisation Strategies for each partner country: impact will be Regional with National and International dimensions. The presence of three partners from China ensures international synergies and a global impact.
