Join this webinar on 19 September and find out how Danish, Belgian and Dutch companies are embracing digital and technological innovation to deliver on food waste prevention.
This event will be a chance to discuss good practices regarding the reduction of food waste, including how we can make the best use of innovative solutions and data in order to transform our food systems to ensure enhanced food security and sustainable business opportunities.
In a one-hour webinar on 27 September, EUFIC’s Research Lead, Dr Betty Chang, will present good practices for information-based campaigns to reduce food waste.

At the 17th annual Austrian csrTAG conference on Artificial Intelligence & Circular Economy: What responsible economy must achieve for society more than 50 speakers will pass on their knowledge in 10 programme points and 6 breakout sessions. The keynotes and speeches, panel discussions and practical workshops will provide new scenarios for development of a sustainable future.
With the help of artificial intelligence, one aims to create the transformation to a more circular economy, preserving the value of products, materials and resources within the economy for as long as possible and generating as little waste as possible. The topical sessions include: textiles, food, plastics, packaging, electronics and ICT, construction industry and buildings.
There are major benefits to be gained from residual flows that are used to a limited extent in food production. By scaling up the use of residual streams for human consumption, we can take a big step towards a circular sustainable food system. But because these residual flows require pioneering work in cooperation with various organisations, an impactful chain transition is not realised.
To accelerate the transition of upcycling of residual streams towards food, co-creation and rock-solid cooperation are needed. The Upcycling Community started by Foodvalley NL is a safe environment where organisations can develop their ideas together and gain inspiration from each other. With the right support and a mix of cross-sector organisations, we make a circular impact.
INNOWO invites stakeholders to take part and present their companies at the online roundtable session on 6 October 2022 during Circular Week 2022.

Coffeefrom: processing coffee grounds into a durable and resistant alternative to single-use plastic
Coffeefrom is an innovative project from Italy, the second circular economy project run by Il Giardinone Cooperativa Sociale. It has built a supply chain based on the recovery and processing of industrial coffee grounds. Coffee grounds from the food industry are blended with biopolymers to become a new bio-based material that is a durable and resistant alternative to single-use plastic.
The Hydro Ben project focuses on resource recovery for reuse in other industrial activities. It consists of recovering fatty substances from wastewater in professional catering facilities, by means of a special device which is placed under the sink.
