On May 28 the City of Oslo, ECN, Eurocities, MWE, Urban Agenda for the EU are jointly organising a Workshop in Brussels on the topic: 'The road to Urban Bioeconomy: Barriers and Solutions to Closing the Loops of Bio-Resources'

The EU legal framework regulates the collection, treatment and use of urban bio-resources, and EU has now agreed that by 2023 all EU member states must implement separate collection of food waste. With this seminar, we would like to foster the discussion between the European Commission, urban settlements and stakeholders with regard to the important role of biowaste in the circular economy. The workshop will focus on how to capture the value embedded in these flows in the form of energy, nutrients and materials. How can we fully exploit the potential of the significant volume of organic waste flowing through the urban environment and What are the barriers and what can be the solutions?

Monday 28 May 2018

Norway House, Rue Archimède 17,1000 Brussels
