Review on good practices examples

By Project CORE

Our kick-off meeting highlighted diverse and impactful good practices that aim to build a sustainable future. These examples were presented by different project partners and reflect different approaches to bio-waste management in decentralised areas. To provide a deeper insight, we share a comprehensive report that delves into the objectives of each good practice and carefully weighs its pros and cons. Here's an insight into the transformative practices discussed:

  1. Training in Master Composter - Red Estatal de Entidades Locales por el Compostaje Doméstico y Comunitario (Spain): The creation of an official training program at national level in composting at local scale (household, community and small facilities) that could be recognized and validated by all the local administrations

  2. Implementing a Home Composting Scheme with Master Composters - Vlaco (Flanders, Belgium): Engaging Master Composters to drive successful home composting initiatives, contributing to waste reduction.

  3. Community Composting of Biowaste - RSUSA (Castilla La Mancha, Spain): Implementing on site composting for two specific single generators of food waste in a small rural municipality.

  4. Community Composting in Kóspallag: Obstacles and Solutions - CTRIA (Kóspallag, Hungary): The development of a local composting model for the management and treatment of green waste in a rural town (Kóspallag), with about 850 inhabitants, at the north of Hungary based on voluntary work.

  5. Anaerobic Digestion & Composting - Bio-Energy Centre - Schwarze Elster (Germany): A bio-waste management model that is based on the selective collection with high quality (low contaminants mixed with the organic material) of food waste and garden waste in the urban areas of the Counties Elbe-Elster and Oberspreewald-Lausitz, in the East of the country.

  6. Anaerobic Digestion in Rural Areas - Implementing Professional Predigestion and Composting of Biowaste (Flanders, Belgium): Include the treatment of the food waste (VFG model) selective collected (household composting is also promoted) through thermophilic anaerobic digestion (DRANCO technology) in centralized facilities for the final production of biogas and certified compost.

  7. Soil Improver (Poland) 16 Biogas (Poland): Exploring sustainable practices in Poland for soil improvement and biogas production.

  8. From Farm Composting to Robust Composting Plants in Rural Areas (Italy): Showcasing the evolution from farm-level composting to robust composting plants in rural Italy.Food waste selective collected from 18 municipalities is transported to a centralized AD facility for its treatment.

  9. Good Practices on Anaerobic Digestion in the Province of Bolzano (Italy): Bolzano now employs a balanced centralized and decentralized bio-waste management model.

  10. Food Waste Collection and Anaerobic Digestion System for Biogas and Biofertilizer (Sweden): This example is about selective collection of bio-waste in different municipalities of centre Sweden and its transportation to an anaerobic digestion facility for its treatment.
