Turning urban waste streams into added-value products


CIRCULAR BIOCARBON  presents a first-of-a-kind flagship biorefinery designed to valorise the Organic Fraction of Municipal Solid Waste (OFMSW) and Sewage Sludge (SS) into high added-value end and intermediate products, including coating of direct consumer products, coating of mechanical moving parts, coating of plastic moulding tools, biodegradable and compostable waste bags, green graphene-based devices and products, biodegradable soil mulch films, solid organomineral fertiliser with biostimulant properties and liquid biobased biostimulant.

Bringing together pan-European and cross-sector industries/SMEs, research organisations, universities, regions, and countries, through projects, like CIRCULAR BIOCARBON, the Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU) was established in 2014, and aims to implement the Strategic Innovation & Research Agenda (SIRA), developed by industry in collaboration with the EU, operating under Horizon 2020 which work towards, and designed to realise a bio-based economy for Europe.
