Organic material and biowaste

Organic material and the resulting waste are a key material for achieving a circular economy. It is both a large source of waste and a source of circular opportunity. According to the European Compost Network (ECN), promoting circular alternatives for the processing of biowaste will have more than just environmental benefits:

  • Europe annually digests or composts around 30 million tonnes of separately collected biowaste.
  • Europe has the capacity to increase this number to 90 million tonnes.
  • This could lead to the creation of 50,000 jobs, including in areas of high unemployment.
