Tech4Biowaste co-organises the ‘Pitch Perfect and Boost the European Bioeconomy 2022’ event in Brussels this September

A one-day event of intense cross-border pitching, matchmaking and networking in the heart of Europe: 26 September 2022, 10 am – 5 pm, Sheraton Brussels Airport Hotel

About Tech4Biowaste

The Tech4Biowaste project is developing a dynamic database of relevant technologies for various paths of biowaste utilisation. The project consortium consists of the BTG Biomass Technology Group (The Netherlands), the Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant (Belgium) and the nova-Institute for Political and Environmental Innovation (Germany). The team aims to provide the bio-based industry with a broad overview of existing and emerging technologies with a Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 4 and higher for biowaste utilisation and valorisation. Currently, Tech4Biowaste is looking for technology providers that want to present their technology with a free company profile in this publicly accessible open-source database.
