Turns biowaste residues into high-value products.


ValueWaste enables the transition to a sustainable circular economy.

ValueWaste proposes an integrated solution to fully valorise biowastes into high-value products: proteins and other products for food & feed and biobased fertilisers. propose three new value chains that use urban biowaste as raw material for its valorisation into high-value end products in a cascading process. The three working lines are to be integrated in current waste management systems of two European cities. The process is based upon clean technologies, it can be easily implemented and replicated, and results in economic, social and environmental benefits.
