City Interest Group

The CIRCULAR BIOCARBON City Interest Group is constituted of cities or local authorities from all over Europe. Members are cities or urban authorities with an interest in valorising bio-waste and particularly in setting up a biorefinery, but also rural local governments interested in developing the local bioeconomy in connection with the primary sector. The group will closely follow developments within the project, and will learn from the CIRCULAR BIOCARBON approach, results and the technical expertise of consortium partners to potentially adopt a similar approach to waste management in their cities.

More specifically, members will benefit from:

  • 4 study visits in Zaragoza (ES), Saint-Malo (FR) and Sesto San Giovanni (IT)
  • 2 full-day replication and training workshops to consolidate the tools and knowledge needed to pursue replication of the project approach
  • 2 City Match Exchange events for in-depth discussion and learning between the group and project partners
  • A series of webinars, on various topics related to bio-waste valorisation
