WasteReuse

WasteReuse aims to the development of new and alternative agricultural practices with the use of treated (or potentially untreated) agricultural waste (AW), which affects, besides the production itself, the quality of soil, water and air by considering the effect of the following significant parameters; soil properties, soil-climate relation and environmental conditions.

There exist many projects relative to the development of Agricultural Waste treatment technologies that have been funded within European funding schemes and especially LIFE. Most of them focused on the development of innovative technologies for wastes treatment as well as, for the improvement of production processes which further produce “cleaner” wastes. Apart from European research/scientific communities, there are also companies and individuals (SMEs, environmentalists, etc) who have developed technologies or improved production routes aiming to achieve better quality final products and minimize waste volumes and thus, environmental degradation caused by their disposal.
