WOW! Closing Event - Part 2


8 September 2023 - 8 September 2023

We would like to invite you to our hybrid closing event, taking place on the 8th of September at Trinity College Dublin in Ireland, or join us online!

The last 2 years, the WOW! project focused on the recovery of two biobased products from sewage and industrial residual streams: PHA, a biodegradable plastic, and activated carbon from pyrolysis of cellulose. This morning is all about sharing our latest results with you, but we will also look forward. How can we create more impact on this topic?
