The Biocircularcities project aimed to unlock the circular economy potential of unexploited bio-based waste streams by exploring the development of economically and environmentally efficient models for organic waste (food and kitchen waste, garden waste, agricultural waste from agrobased industrial sector, wood waste and forestry residues, etc.) in three pilot areas.

The Biocircularcities results in a nutshell

Analysing the bioeconomy situation in pilot territories

Partners identified potential improvements using LCA and LCC methodologies to evaluate the environmental and economic sustainability of biowaste management systems across three bio-based value chains.

Boosting circular bioeconomy in pilot territories

Partners analysed circular bioeconomy best practices that could be successfully implemented in the pilot areas and identified policy recommendations encompassing broader principles and strategies that can be adapted and applied in other regions and value chains.

Facilitating the replication in other EU countries

Partners developed a webtool to assist assists stakeholders in identifying appropriate bio-circular technologies for improving biowaste management based on their specific contexts.
