Biowaste

Solid organic residues represent the main fraction of municipal waste, whose proper handling is fundamental to avoid adverse environmental burdens. In addition, organic residues represent the main type of agricultural waste, generated in large quantities and remaining for the most part underutilized. Biological treatments have been commonly applied to convert biowaste into either products or energy, but the most recent trends are directed towards the identification of alternative solutions to use biowaste as a resource, taking the greatest advantage from its proper valorization, in a biorefinery concept. 

This session is focused on biowaste and it is intended to provide insightful discussion on alternative strategies for its sustainable handling as well as to uncover the newest trends in biowaste recovery. To this end, contributions related, but not limited, to the following topics are welcomed:

 

  • characterization of biowaste streams for its proper valorization; 

  • collection techniques and treatment processes (biological, thermal, …); 

  • mass flow analysis and quantification of biowaste losses during conventional recycling processes; 

  • recycling practices for biowaste conversion into bioproducts and/or bioenergy; 

  • advances in technology for the exploitation of the overall biowaste potential; 

  • monitoring and optimization of full-scale processes for biowaste treatment;
