Business opportunities for raw materials from sewage

Leuven, Belgium

24 October 2019 - 24 October 2019

The Interreg WOW! project is initiator of a transition in which raw materials in sewage are reused and transformed into valuable bioproducts. We subtract PHA to make bioplastic, produce lipids to make biofuel and sieve cellulose to make biochar.

Are you curious about the technologies or do you see opportunities to market the biobased products? Join us on the 24th of October and learn more!

In the afternoon there are two sessions that can be visited separately.

Session 1: Technique and business opportunities

Learn more about how PHA, lipids and cellulose are obtained from sewage water. And which biobased products can we make with this? What opportunities does that offer for business?

Session 2:Current legilisation and regulations

Join the discussion on the subject: The blocking of the current circular approaches to raw materials in sewage water by current legislation and regulations.
