Business opportunities for raw materials from sewage

Leuven, Belgium

24 October 2019 - 24 October 2019

The Interreg WOW! project is one of the initiators of an EU wide transition in which raw materials from sewage are reused as valuable bio-based products. We will subtract PHA to make bioplastics, extract and multiply lipids to make biofuel and use cellulose to make biochar.

Do you want to know more about the technologies? Or do you see possibilities to help us with the business uptake? Please feel welcome to join us this afternoon!

Two interactive workshops can be visited separately from each other:

During the first workshop we highlight and discuss the recovery of the three raw materials in relation to their use as bio-based products for different markets.

In the second workshop current legal and policy challenges that still block a circular approach in sewage treatment will be discussed. 

We are looking forward meet you the 24th of October!
