Previous projects

  • NEWAPP 2013-2016 - FP7-SME-2013. The project aimed to increase the amount of bio-waste diverted from landfill and incineration into high value products that can be used as fuel, activated carbons for water treatment, soil remediation, carbon sequestration schemes and other applications and to develop an alternative cost/resource-efficient and environmentally sound way of dealing with wet biomass waste through HTC (hydrothermal carbonisation) technology.
  • SCOW 2013-2015 - ENPI CBCMED. The objective was to develop low cost, technically simply and high quality biowaste collection and recycling models in territories with touristic areas and agricultural activity.
  • Horizon2020 Capacity Building 2010-2014 - EuropAid. The project aimed to build capacity for the implementation of Horizon2020 programmes in Mediterranean countries via series of training sessions and workshops.
  • R4R 2012-2014 - Interreg IVC. The project aimed at sharing good practices to improve selective collection and recycling schemes at regional and local level. Each partner introduced one new good practice in their territory and all contributed to the collection of waste management data. The project allowed for the comparison of recycling performances, the identification and transfer of good recycling practices and the wide spread dissemination of the project results beyond the project partners.
  • MED3R 2012-2015 - ENPI CBC MED. This project was a strategic euro-Mediterranean platform for integrated waste management within the ENPI Cross Border Cooperation MED Programme within the framework “Treatment and recycling of waste”. The project aimed to contribute to the establishment of an environmentally sound waste management system and develop appropriate strategies of collection and prevention.
  • Pre-waste 2010-2013 - Interreg IVC. The project aimed to help cities and regions to improve their waste prevention policies. The project developed a consistent and comprehensive approach to help local and regional authorities to prevent waste generation.
  • Miniwaste 2010-2012 - LIFE+. The project aimed at demonstrating that it is possible to significantly reduce the amount of bio-waste at local level. The project focused the gathering and sharing of good practices and case studies implemented by European local and regional authorities.
  • Godem 2010-2012 - EuropAid. The project aimed at creating a permanent knowledge base and network for exchanging experiences regarding sustainable and optimized waste management between local and regional authorities in the Mediterranean basin.
