CEN Workshop on 'Extraction, production and purification of added value products from urban wastes'

Wastewater treatment and organic fraction of municipal solid waste are responsible for the annual generation of up to 138 million tonnes of bio-waste in the EU. It has been estimated that almost 75% of this waste is currently sent to incineration or landfilling, with an extraordinary environmental and economic cost associated. Moreover, a high percentage of this waste holds a great potential as a source of recycled materials or valuable component recovery source. Wastewater contains cellulose and nutrients that could be used as feedstock for many applications. Solid organic waste could be also an interesting source of materials for added value applications (e.g., ectoine, polyhydroxyalkanoates, biomethane, etc.), to complement their conventional valorisation routes (e.g., fertilizers, biogas, etc).
