Project period: 2016-2020
NoAW is an European Horizon 2020 EU research and development project that aims to contribute to the “zero waste economy”. Through the approach of a circular economy the project seeks to develop models in which the valorisation of agricultural wastes are optimised on a territorial and seasonal scale.
The treatment and utilisation of these residues as by-products takes the load off agriculture and industry and reduces the use of the primary raw materials. In doing so, the project promotes bio-based, environmentally friendly products with a direct benefit for the environment, the economy and for society.
IBBK’s tasks include:
+ Data collection
+ Development of business models that link owner/operators with the bio-economy
+ Dissemination of knowledge and technology transfer to farms, businesses and other end-users
