WORKSHOP – Circular Bioeconomy in the Urban Waste Management: Role of the public administration

14th December 2021 from 09:30 to 14:30
Universidad Rey Juan Carlos

The urban biorefinery concept came up to promote the recovery of valuable resources contained in the urban waste to be used as a raw matter within the production system. Urban waste includes municipal solid waste, excess of biomass from pruning and gardening, and the domestic wastewater. The role of the Public Administration in the management and the development of successful policies is key for guaranteeing the fitting of the public actions to the basic principia of circular bioeconomy, which are defined through the EU agreements. These agreements focus on the practical application of the UN Sustainable Development Goals 6 and 12, which have been ratified by the member States.

This Workshop will analyze the role of the Public Administration in the practical application of the urban biorefinery concept, through the participation of local, regional, and national bodies. The scope of the Workshop encompasses those geographic zones where three research projects operate, which are all based on the application of the circular bioeconomy principia on the urban waste management:
