One of the key areas in Central Finland is biodegradable waste. A study on mixed household solid wastes, conducted in spring 2017, revealed that domestic waste still contains up to 30% of organic waste. Biodegradable waste is a raw material for biogas production, and should not be disposed together with solid wastes. In general, biogas production has increased in Central Finland, and its share of the energy consumed by our transport sector could be notable in the future. CIRCWASTE project promotes the production and consumption of biomethane.
CIRCWASTE will catalyse circular economy actions via regional roadmaps. These roadmaps will enable the regions to find their strengths and focus areas in waste-related circular economy. Roadmaps are created in cooperation with various stakeholders, including municipalities, waste companies, NGO’s and schools.
