An interactive online workshop in the framework of the Amsterdam Chemistry Innovation Day.


Workshop: Organic Waste Valorisation

Soort bijeenkomst:

Informatie- en netwerkbijeenkomst


The annual amount of organic waste from the food industry in Noord-Holland and households in Metropole Region Amsterdam is more than 100 kton. A large portion of that is nowadays just being burnt. In this workshop we will address the valorisation challenge of such waste streams. We start with presenting some examples: industrial vegetable waste from the food processing industry and cocoa shell waste. Next, we will address the challenge of valorisation of organic waste from Amsterdam Households. With all creative minds on board, we discuss on potential scientific and technical means to address this challenge to the highest value and to collect all relevant facts and ideas that came up during this interactive session with the ultimate goal to start-up joint research and innovation projects.
