Project Waste 2 Go - Upgrading Municipal Waste - Case Study
Waste2Go is a research and technological development (RTD) project, co-funded under the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), the 'Environment' Theme. The objective is to transform the biogenic fraction of Municipal Solid Waste (over 55%) into chemicals with an economic value greater than if it was used as an energy source. The project hopes to reduce pressure on primary raw materials, decrease pollution and build up more sustainable consumption and production patterns.
FeyeCon is focused on developing separation processes and supercritical water oxidation (SWO). The project will develop Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) as a sustainable source of raw materials for the chemical industry, displacing fossil sources. It will reduce the environmental burden of MSW, transforming parts into an economically viable and sustainable raw material. It will use leading bio-technology methods and adapt a full life cycle approach to the project's R&D and exploitation strategies.
