WASTE 2 GO – UPGRADING MUNICIPAL WASTE

Waste2Go is a research and technological development (RTD) project, co-funded under the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), the "Environment" Theme. The objective is to transform the biogenic fraction of Municipal Solid Waste (over 55%) into chemicals with an economic value greater than if it was used as an energy source. The project hopes to reduce pressure on primary raw materials, decrease pollution and build up more sustainable consumption and production patterns.

FeyeCon is focused on developing separation processes and supercritical water oxidation (SWO). The project will develop Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) as a sustainable source of raw materials for the chemical industry, displacing fossil sources. It will reduce the environmental burden of MSW, transforming parts into an economically viable and sustainable raw material. It will use leading bio-technology methods and adapt a full life cycle approach to the project's R&D and exploitation strategies.  For more information please contact us or visit: www.waste2go.eu

WASTE TREATMENT AND VALORIZATION

More and more companies are committed to adopting cradle to cradle production cycles and recycling. FeyeCon upcycles CO₂ waste gas from other industries to make production processes more sustainable. Because we believe that recycling and waste management is of vital importance we are involved in several projects to recycle waste and upgrade byproducts. 

TREATING WASTE WATER 

Algae are able to grow in municipal and industrial wastewater and break down organic waste. Under certain circumstances and when the algae are ‘trained’ to do so, they can even absorb and concentrate chemical waste. FeyeCon researches how to optimize the cultivation and harvesting of micro-algae in wastewater. 

UPGRADED FOOD RESIDUES

FeyeCon develops new approaches to upgrade the quality of food waste and by-products that currently serve as feed or biofuel. By improving the quality aspects of these by-products they can be made fit for human consumption, achieving a higher market value. An example of upgrading food residues is the extraction of proteins out of rape seeds. Additionally, rape seed contains indigestible fibers and anti-nutrients. FeyeCon is able to separate the valuable proteins from the other components, thereby significantly upgrading the rape seed oil. Another example is the extraction of valuable anti-oxidants from olive leaves, which are now considered invaluable waste. 

VALUE FROM WASTE FLOWERS

Many by-products  generated in horticulture are considered to be waste, but contain valuable and natural ingredients. All these ingredients are currently left unused, while they could easily replace their synthetic equivalents. For example, FeyeCon is able to extract Galantamine out of narcissus bulbs, a constituent currently used to treat mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease. Color can also be extracted from flower by-product. These can be used in cosmetics, but also to enhance the color of other flowers.
