WaysTUP! aims to demonstrate the establishment of new value chains for urban biowaste utilisation to produce a range of new biobased products, including food and feed ingredients, through a multi-stakeholder approach in line with circular economy. The project will showcase a portfolio of new ‘urban biowaste to biobased products’ processes starting from different feedstocks i.e. […]


ΝH3END aims to develop an innovative method of enriching and preserving mixed methanogenic populations in anaerobic bioreactors capable of fully respond to the current levels of NH3 concentrations that biogas plants in Greece operate. In addition, in order to improve the environmental footprint of biogas plants, NH3END will develop a combined modified process where the […]

Digital Waste Registry

The Digital Waste Registry (DWR) enables online procedures for registration and verification in a database for companies (waste producers, transporters and waste recipients). DWR facilitates the users to fulfill their obligation of submitting annual waste report about waste use, management and disposal, so as to both hamper the uncontrolled waste distribution and help Ministry of […]
