The EU Project “Biowaste4SP” is a prime example of how WAITRO facilitates global collaboration between its members from across the globe.

Food waste is one of the central challenges the world is facing. It is estimated that up to 30% of total food producing is wasted globally. Biorefineries offer the chance to use this biomass waste for energy, nutrition and food production. This is especially important considering that many products today are manufactured from crude oil and petroleum with the aid of technologies driven by fossil energy. Consequently, the Danish Technology Institute (DTI) coordinated the EU-funded project “Biowaste4SP” in cooperation with the following WAITRO member organizations:

  • IVL, Sweden
  • TUBI
