Unlocking the potential of urban organic waste
Description of call
"Unlocking the potential of urban organic waste"

Waste production, processing and disposal are increasing challenges for urban areas. In this context, local biorefineries can use waste from surrounding industries and municipalities in a symbiotic manner. Today, there are very few examples of facilities that can convert the biodegradable fraction of municipal solid waste and sewage sludge into anything other than compost and energy. Further innovations in urban waste management schemes could contribute to better collection and processing of waste for the production of higher value bio-based products, including for example bio-based chemicals and bio-plastics.
