Valorisation of the organic content of Municipal Solid Waste and contributing to the renewable circular economy

Programme: Horizon2020
Deadline: 2016-09-08
Tags: Other Thematic Category


Demonstrate the techno-economic viability of the conversion of the organic fraction of MSW into chemical building blocks, polymers or additives. The developed approach should be robust and able to tackle the issues inherent to MSW treatment, such as variability in composition (among others seasonality and geographic location) and presence of inhibitors to downstream biotechnological processes.

Suggested calls:


Optimise technical production routes to bio-based chemicals in bio- or chemo-catalytic processes

The challenge is to specifically optimise technical bio-based production routes in a way that minimizes nutrient losses over the whole process chain caused by either processing and/or partial use of v...
