Turning organic urban waste streams into value–added products

6 October 2022, 10:00 - 11:00

Cities are looking for new ways to become more circular and tackle challenges around urban waste. To this end, a group of European leaders have come together to ask: What if there was a way to transform carbon from urban waste to a product like a compostable bag, biodegradable film, or sustainable fertiliser? 

The CIRCULAR BIOCARBON project is doing just that. The project is developing its first-of-its-kind 'biorefinery', designed to turn the organic fraction of municipal solid waste and sewage sludge into goods for industries and end consumers. Through a series of innovative cascading technologies, the CIRCULAR BIOCARBON approach is designed to be able to treat all the bio-waste produced by a medium-sized city!

Join the project on 6 October for a webinar that will present the CIRCULAR BIOCARBON approach and introduce the new biorefinery model, explaining the benefits of joint waste and wastewater management, moving from waste to resources, and the recovery of materials.

The session will demonstrate the fact that it is now possible to valorise different types of waste at once to produce bio-based materials and added-value end products (rather than just producing compost or energy). Plus, attendees will leave with a better understanding of how to implement the CIRCULAR BIOCARBON model in their cities.
