Abstract: The aim of this project is to evaluate, define and optimize the degradation process of a Macrocyclic Lactone in alkaline conditions inside a batch reactor at high temperature. Therefore, ML properties and behavior under different conditions will be studied. In addition, two experimental studies will be performed to evaluate the effect of alkali and temperature in the molecule degradation pathways. For instance, kinetic parameters such as degradation rate constants and activation energy will be extracted from the experimental results in order to determine the sensitivity of the reaction towards temperature. Otherwise, the Biowaste system installation, where the chemical treatment is carried out, will be deeply analyzed to better understand how the equipment works and which are the stages involved in one cycle. Moreover, mains water and electric energy consumptions will be quantified to see if any improvements can be applied to the system. The benefits obtained from the optimization of the reaction will be quantified, such as the reduction in sodium hydroxide concentration or the increase in the installation yield, among others
