BIOCIRCULARCITIES unfolds on two interrelated levels: the local levels of three pilot territories and the European (or international) level where the project’s results will be replicated.
The section will be gradually updated until September 2023 to follow the advancement of the project and the publication of its results.
Analysing the bioeconomy situation in pilot territories
Biocircularcities is studying the situation in the pilot territories to understand to which extend biowaste is underexploited and could be brought better in line with the principles of the circular economy. Partners have already selected relevant sectors producing and managing biowaste and mapped relevant stakeholders involved in biowaste management chains.
They are currently working on identifying potential improvements of biowaste chains.
Boosting circular bioeconomy in pilot territories
After a first situational analysis, partners are identifying and analysing circular bioeconomy best practices that could be successfully implemented in the pilot areas, mapping opportunities and obstacles to the introduction of such processes.
Facilitating the replication in other EU countries
To help transfer the learning from the three pilot areas to other European territories, the project will:
Design a matrix/decision tree able to transfer to other urban European contexts the proposals for policy measures and innovative solutions developed at local level to help implement the circular bioeconomy
Develop web-based tool to assist both policy makers and industry in designing biowaste management strategies.
Prepare general guidelines for implementing biowaste management in Europe adopting a circular bioeconomy approach.
Results will be presented during activities such as local events or webinars. Keep an eye on the events page where these activities will be announced.
