CityLoops and bio-waste

CityLoops' final webinar

26 September 2023, 11:00 - 12:30
- online

Join the CityLoops project for a final webinar on bio-waste, which will present the main results from the project's work towards a circular bioeconomy, including an overview of how the developed instruments and demonstration actions can be replicated in other cities in Europe and beyond.

The webinar will follow the structure of The Bio-waste Practitioner Handbook, one of the main CityLoops legacies. The handbook provides recommendations for any European local government on how to promote circularity in the bio-waste sector. It aims to bridge the gap between theory and practice by referring to both relevant findings in literature, and to a selection of case studies from CityLoops and other projects.

Preliminary programme for the webinar

  • 13:00 – Introduction: the circular transition of the bio-waste sector and the role of local authorities
  • 13:05 – Evaluation: understanding your city
  • 13:15 – Implementation: waste prevention, food redistribution, decentralised treatment, centralised treatment
  • 13:35 – Implementation & acceleration: enabling and accelerating the transition to a circular bio-waste system
  • 13:50 – Q&A
  • 14:20 – Closing
