Biocirculacities Unlocked - The Brussels stop

From 28 September 2023 09:30 until 28 September 2023 13:30

In October 2021, the Biocircularcities partners started exploring the development of economically and environmentally efficient models for organic waste in the three pilot areas. What is the result? Three models for new, more circular, value chains in the Pazardzhik region, the metropolitan city of Naples, and the metropolitan area of Barcelona. But also, policy recommendations and guidelines to boost a circular bioeconomy, and a webtool to support the identification of the most suitable bio-circular technologies for improving the biowaste management.

What if this final stop was rather a new beginning? What if it is just the start of new adventure which will see the project’s results growing in other territories and a circular bioeconomy spreading to all Europe?

After Pazardzhik, Barcelona and Naples, the Biocircularcities partners planted their seeds in Brussels. Participants were invited to get inspired to bring the Biocircularcities approach to their garden by learning more about the project and its results, discussing the future of a circular bioeconomy in Europe, and exchanging with your peers.
