The overall objective of Bin2Grid concept is to promote segregated collection of food waste as energy source, conversion to biogas, and its upgrading to biomethane and utilization in associated network of filling stations. Accent is given to defining strategies for establishing efficient network of food and beverage waste collection methods and practices. Four target cities were selected (Zagreb, Skopje, Malaga, Paris) to study the potential of biofuel production from food waste. Concept implementation for the target cities was based on different events, including workshops, foodwaste working group meetings and study tours.
The project is one of the relevant initiatives supporting the development and uptake of bio-based products at European and regional level identified by BIOWAYS. They have collaborated with BIOWAYS by providing valuable insights into their work and meaningful evidence and information regarding a series of areas such as their expected outputs and market uptake, the legislation and policy framework that affects them, the user’s perspective on their outputs and the impact, visibility and exploitation potential of their project/outputs.
