ECOVAL proposes a new approach for the management of urban organic waste that has a lower environmental impact and promotes the circular economy, thanks to the conversion of waste into resources. 

The project will promote the biofactory model, replicable throughout the European Union, to obtain bio-products with high added value from sewage sludge and urban bio-waste.

ECOVAL will develop the complete value chain from the collection of waste to the marketing of the end product, through the development of innovative biotechnological processes that allow volatile fatty acids – demanded by the plastic, lubricant and agrochemical industries – to be obtained from sludge and urban organic waste.
