From waste to resource: how biowaste can fuel the Green Deal
Waste can be a valuable resource. The benefits or applying the circular economy to bio-waste are, to mention a few: job creation, soil protection and improvement, resource savings, greenhouse gas emissions reductions and increase in renewable energy. With a proper framework in place, recovery of bio-waste will make the EU more resource-efficient.
This event will highlight the ways circular economy through the recovery of bio-waste can contribute to EU reaching the Green Deal goals. It will gather analysts, policy experts, academic experts, businesses and government representatives to give their views and insights.
A key use for biowaste is biogas, which can be a flexible and sustainable source of renewable energy. In many places in Europe, the full potential is still not being used. Biogas is a way to both provide new sustainable alternatives to sectors like agriculture and transport, and to include them in the circular economy.

Q: Will the production of only biogas close the loop, or the composting phase would also be necessary?
Q: Its fine with household waste in biogasplants, but how do we convince the dairys (eks ARLA) also need to accept that the waste from biogas-plants are spread on soil were grass is growing for milk cows
Q: Is it possible to watch in the sessions in their original language? (to Asger Christensen)
