PROJECTS

Kalundborg Symbiosis participate in a couple of EU projects regarding symbioses, waste treatment and green transition.

At the moment we participate in the following projects:

Baltic Industrial Symbiosis (BIS)

The project promotes industrial symbiosis, a concept for sustainable regional development, across the Baltic Sea region. Industrial symbiosis means to connect companies from different industries in order to use one company’s waste, in the form of e.g. energy, ingredients or materials, as a resource for the next company. The project establishes peer-to-peer exchange for industrial symbiosis practitioners. It develops new business and finance models and sets up the BSR Industrial Symbiosis Council as a platform for dialogue and policy learning.

In the project Baltic Industrial Symbiosis, partners from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Poland and Russia are working together to promote industrial symbiosis across the Baltic Sea Region and beyond. Overall, the project builds knowledge and capacity among innovation actors in accelerating industrial symbiosis development through practice-based cooperation.

Value Waste

The ValueWaste project aims to demonstrate an integrated system for urban biowaste valorisation through the development of three processing lines. This will lead to the generation of crucial and high-value products for the EU, whose supply faces the following challenges:

PROTEIN – The EU imports 77% of the required proteins for feed or food supplies. There is a need of alternative and sustainable sources of proteins for humans and animals.

BIOBASED FERTILISERS – Food supply depends on the availability of soil nutrients for EU agriculture, such as phosphorous and nitrogen. However, phosphorous sources are depleting, while the production of nitrogen-based fertilisers is highly energy demanding.

ValueWaste gathers 17 partners from 6 EU countries. All together, the whole value chain of biowaste valorisation is fully covered. The implementation of the project relies on the engagement of two EU cities: Murcia (South Spain) and Kalundborg (East Denmark).

PROJECT DURATION:
Nov 2018 – Oct 2022

TOTAL BUDGET:
EUR 10,863,875

EU CONTRIBUTION:
EUR 8,375,472
