Despite around half of municipal waste being organic, biowaste management – from collection through to valorisation – remains a challenge for many cities and regions.
The HOOP project aims to drive innovation in the sector by assisting 8 cities and regions, our Lighthouses, in the implementation of novel circular processes. By helping the Lighthouses address legal, financial, and technical barriers, HOOP will unlock significant investments in state-of-the-art biowaste and wastewater valorisation technologies.
HOOP has created and collected a number of tools to facilitate the replication of project results in cities and regions across the continent: Discover them on the HOOP Urban Circular Bioeconomy Hub!
