Karin Meisterl (Fundació ENT) serà una de les ponents de la propera World Conference on Recycling and Waste Management. La WCRWM tindrà lloc del 15 al 16 de maig de 2023 a París, França. La conferència té com a objectiu reunir acadèmics d’arreu del món per presentar els últims resultats de recerca i avenços en camps rellevants i ofereix un entorn ideal per fer noves col·laboracions científiques. Karin hi presentarà el “BIOCIRCULARCITIES project: Regulatory gap and opportunity analysis for a circular bioeconomy”.

La conferència té com a objectiu promoure la investigació i crear una atmosfera de cooperació internacional entre els investigadors del medi ambient, els experts en reciclatge i els investigadors en gestió de residus reunint investigadors de primer nivell, comunitats internacionals i responsables industrials per discutir els últims desenvolupaments i innovacions en els camps del reciclatge i gestió de residus.


Abstract de la presentació de la Karin:

At European level, priority is given to the implementation of biorefineries that – following the “cascading use of biomass principle” – process secondary raw materials (waste, residues, and by-products) into a range of marketable bio-based products, including biochemicals, bioplastics and other biomaterials, food and feed, compost, and bioenergy. This principle also applies to the selected streams of the BIOCIRCULARCITIES (BCC) project, i.e., forestry residues, organic waste from the agro-industrial sector and municipal biowaste for the pilot territories of Pazardzhik Province (BG), the Metropolitan City of Naples (IT) and the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona (ES), respectively. More sustainable management of organic wastes and residues requires binding and specific legal measures at EU and national level to improve the quantity and quality of feedstocks for bio-based products and to ensure their successful market introduction. To better understand the current opportunities and gaps for the circular bioeconomy in the policy framework, 23 documents at EU level and 49 at national, regional, and local level for the three pilot territories were examined. Key passages of legislation were selected and analyzed in depth to identify relevant legal/administrative, technical, economic, environmental, and social drivers and barriers that favor or hinder the transition to a more biocircular system for organic waste and residue management. In addition, local stakeholders and international experts contributed their knowledge and experience to check the feasibility of the alternative scenarios proposed for the selected value chains through participatory processes. All results will be used to provide policy recommendations for the pilot territories.
