The objectives of this paper are to present some interim results of an ongoing Project and to shortly introduce the scope of the project and the partners.

Production of activated carbons from biomass waste for environmental applications
© Wasteconsult International (5/2017)
The production of activated carbon from olive residue using carbon dioxide is studied in a new microreactor system.

Combined separation of fine dust and pollutant gases during the energetic utilization of biogenic residues
© Wasteconsult International (5/2017)
Within the framework of a joint project a filter system was developed for the combined separation of fine dust and gaseous acidifying pollutants for biomass combustion processes by the Institute for Particle Processing Technology (University of Paderborn), the company Hellmich GmbH and Co. KG and the DBFZ German Biomass Research Centre, non-profit LLC

Autothermal fast pyrolysis of woody residues and wastes for the production of wood adhesives
© Wasteconsult International (5/2017)
Fast pyrolysis of birch wood and birch bark sawdust, and of hydrolysis lignin have been studied in a bubbling fluidized bed reactor at a reaction temperature of 500°C under conventional endothermic pyrolysis as well as with partial (air) oxidation to achieve autothermal conditions.

Quality Assurance of compost and digestate products in Flanders, a safeguard for product quality
© European Compost Network ECN e.V. (6/2014)
The biological treatment of biowaste through composting and anaerobic digestion in the Flemish Region, is subject to the Flemish Regulation on Sustainable Materials Management and Waste, setting out the criteria for different waste streams to obtain the status of a product. For organic fertilizers or soil improvers, the waste treatment plants must obtain a quality certificate, based on a system of independent quality assurance and certification.

Design and validation of an Action Plan to produce animal feed vegetable flour from food waste
© European Compost Network ECN e.V. (6/2014)
Almost three quarters of vegetable by-products generated from food industry and retail trade end up in dumps. However, they can be valued as raw material for animal feed, if they are managed under appropriate conditions. The Clean-Feed project (www.cleanfeed.org) is funded by European LIFE+ program and Basque Government. The aim of this study is to reduce up to 70% of vegetable wastes generated in the Basque Country.

Recovery of nutrients from Organic Fraction of Municipal Sólid Waste (OFMSW) in the Ecoparc 2 of Montcada i Reixac, Barcelona: alternatives to the current process
© European Compost Network ECN e.V. (6/2014)
Recovery of nutrients from the OFMSW is a relevant topic as evidenced by the European initiative ”End of Waste”. Following this guideline, the Ecoparc 2 of Montcada i Reixac, belonging to the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona, submits the OFMSW to anaerobic digestion and then the digestate is separated mechanically, fisrt by pressing and then by centrifugation.

Protease production from organic residues by SSF and their potential uses
© European Compost Network ECN e.V. (6/2014)
An environmental-friendly process is proposed in this work to reduce the negative impact of the increasing agro industrial residues due to the faster growth of the world population. It consists on the valorization of nitrogen-rich local residues, such as soya fiber, hair waste and coffee husk, by solid-state fermentation (SSF) to obtain proteases.

CATAOLEO Project: prevention of environmental impacts from the recycling of waste oils and fats and social inclusion of waste pickers in Brazil
© European Compost Network ECN e.V. (6/2014)
Environmental concern involving the improper disposal of municipal solid waste - MSW in Brazil, and the implementation of National Policy on Solid Waste (PNRS), is necessary to fulfill the hierarchy of management options set: 1) Non-generation, 2) a reduction 3 ) Reuse, 4) recycling; 5) waste treatment; 6) waste disposal.

Biochar: climate saving soils developments in the Interreg Northsea Region Project
© ANS e.V. HAWK (10/2013)
The project Biochar: climate saving soils is a project which is funded by the EU Interreg IVB North Sea Region Programme. The 11 partners from 7 countries develop and share their biochar knowledge about standards, production, use and environmental impact. They jointly investigate and demonstrate the effect of biochar addition to soil on soil quality, crop production and green house gas emissions in demonstration fields and in laboratory tests in each country according to standard protocols.
