CIRCULAR BIOCARBON opens call for applications for City Interest Group

CIRCULAR BIOCARBON has opened a call for applications for European cities (or other local authorities) interested in learning how to turn biowaste into value-added products. 

The consortium responsible for the project will choose up to ten applications to closely follow developments and benefit from technical expertise through project-funded study visits, peer-to-peer exchanges, replication and training workshops and webinars focused on turning bio-waste into high added-value products.

City Interest Group members will have the opportunity to gain insider knowledge on breakthrough innovations and receive expert advice from consortium partners in the field of biowaste valorisation; keep up-to-date on R&D and regulation in the areas of circular economy and bio-based products and services; build long-lasting relationships and help build momentum towards achieving circular economy in Europe.

To become part of the City Interest Group, fill this application form and send it to: simon.gresset@iclei.org

 

The project

CIRCULAR BIOCARBON received over 23M€ through Horizon 2020 to develop a first-of-its-kind flagship biorefinery, designed to turn the organic fraction of municipal solid waste (OFMSW) and sewage sludge (SS) into added-value products, from the coating of mechanical moving parts to biodegradable soil mulch film. 

The fundamental objective of the CIRCULAR BIOCARBON project is to open up new business frameworks based on a new circular vision of waste treatment in a city towards a sustainable bioeconomy, to which actors leading the territorial waste management schemes and policies will be brought to maximize impact on the market, on policymakers and on society.
