Urban biorefineries for a circular bioeconomy

26th of June (09:00 – 16:00)

The urban biorefinery concept came up to promote the recovery of energy and value resources contained in urban waste to be used as a raw and secondary materials to create new value chains. This Workshop deals with the last innovative developments on the re-use and re-cycling of urban waste into high added-value products for a sustainable the society. Urban waste includes Municipal Solid Waste, Green Waste, Wastewater, and Sewage Sludge. The Workshop aims to be a contact point between Scientific, Academia, Industry, and Administration to share, discuss, and promote initiatives over the last developments in European cities within the European Green Deal over the base of the Horizon 2030.
