Scalable technologies for bio-urban waste recovery

Challenge: In the EU over 100 million tonnes of biowaste are thrown away each year, a major waste of nutrient rich materials with high economic and environmental costs of disposal.

Solution: In the SCALIBUR project, leading waste management companies, technology developers and research organisations have teamed up with four European cities to demonstrate innovative solutions to transform urban food waste and sewage sludge into high value-added products, helping cities to increase their recycling rate and creating new circular economy business opportunities. The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 817788.

Duration: November 2018 – October 2022
