The D-CARBONIZE project is kicking off by recruiting 12 doctoral candidates for training on using biomass to produce bioplastics.
The candidates will learn how to use circular chemistry to develop monomers from biochar sources for use in the production of recyclable bioplastics.
Coordinated by the Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ), the D-CARBONIZE Project is part of Horizon Europe's Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions and is a consortium of 12 partners.
As DECOST (Decentralised Composting in Small Towns) project is coming to an end, Med4Waste which capitalises on the results of DECOST and other similar ones, organises an event to share these experiences on 2 March 2023.
This hybrid event (in Vic and online) is open to everybody. Waste management stakeholders interested in composting are welcome to join!
In this context, a circular systemic solution is defined as a demonstration project for deploying a circular and climate-neutral economy at urban and/or regional scale, involving key stakeholders and, ideally, addressing more than one product value chain. Proposals are expected to implement and demonstrate at large scale circular systemic solutions for the deployment of the circular economy (including the circular bioeconomy) in cities and regions or their groupings. They should form part of the implementation of the European Commission's Circular Cities and Regions Initiative (CCRI) and should be carried out in close coordination and cooperation with the CCRI Coordination and Support Office (CCRI-CSO).
The World Circular Economy Forum 2023 will be held in Helsinki from 30 May to 2 June 2023. This global collaboration forum is co-organised by Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra and Nordic Innovation, with international partners. It will attract more than 2 000 leading circular economy players in the world to Finland to find circular solutions that can help our economies fit within the boundaries of nature. Part of the programme will also be accessible online.
The Circular Navarre Catalogue 2022 is an update of the showcasing booklet published in 2020 and in 2021. This new edition includes 50 organisations - based on circular business models - in the Spanish Navarre region, looking for international cooperation.
