Gemma Castejón y Martín Soriano, expertos en Gestión de Residuos en la Economía Circular

Gemma Castejón y Martín Soriano formarán parte del equipo de expertos en la Conferencia Europea sobre Gestión de Residuos en la Economía Circular que tendrá lugar en Berlín los próximos 27 y 28 de febrero de 2020.

Darán a conocer nuestro proyecto VALUEWASTE.

VALUEWASTE proposes an integrated approach in urban biowaste upcycling for the production of high-value biobased products, developing the first complete solution to fully valorise biowaste that can be replicated across Europe. We will implement three new value chains that will use urban biowaste as raw material for its valorisation into high-value end products in a cascading process, generating economic, social and environmental benefits: food & feed proteins and other ingredients, and biobased fertiliser

VALUEWASTE will be developed at two very different European locations, Murcia (ES) and Kalundborg (DK) with the purpose of finding a solution both technical and socially adapted to the different socio-economic contexts exiting across Europe. Social initiatives will be created to increase consumer awareness and acceptance of urban biowaste-derived products. Outcomes of the project will contribute to new standardisation and will be useful information for EU policy makers in terms of waste management and in the adoption of new policies.
