Producing a solution for the organic waste valorization
ICECHIM is the research institute with focus on circular bioeconomy
In Bucharest, 70% of municipal waste is organic, and there are no separate collection systems and no treatment facilities. In addition, there are many agricultural residues, side streams from food processing, markets and supermarkets, and unsold products that are wasted. We are looking for sustainable solutions to recycle these organic streams according to the principles of circular economy, zero waste, zero pollution and climate neutrality.Due to the low market value of residual biomass, solutions should be applied locally or nearby. They should be innovative, cost-effective, and add value to existing resources.
We are looking for a solution that:
- Focuses on a waste stream that is easy to collect and whose volume, frequency, and composition are predictable.
- Focuses on a waste stream whose composition tends to be homogeneous.
- Results in end products of the valorized organic waste with a commercial value.
