CirculaWASTE Project Training

We are happy to share the photographs of the CirculaWASTE training was hosted by Sustainable Development Studies Network (SDS Network) and held in Brussels, Belgium.

CirculaWASTE training were also attended by young professionals from Spain, Latvia, Romania, Belgium and Turkey, They were sharing their thought, ideas and experiences as well during the training programme.

A circular economy is a systemic approach to economic development designed to benefit businesses, society, and the environment. In contrast to the ‘take-make-waste’ linear model, a circular economy is regenerative by design and aims to gradually decouple growth from the consumption of finite resources.

Biomass is an essential renewable energy source and is a key factor in reaching the European climate targets in 2020 and towards 2030, where 32% of the energy consumption within the EU must originate from renewable energy sources.With a share of more than 58% of the energy consumption from renewable energy sources, biomass constitutes the main renewable energy source within the EU

CirculaWASTE project will stimulate the development and use of innovative approaches and tools in agricultural and municipal waste management and biomass energy generation to assess and increase the efficiency of public expenditure in waste management and the investment in training, including through new funding models such as public-private partnerships, cost-sharing, etc. for waste management and biomass energy.

The main aims of this training were provided new information, knowledge and skills about the bioenergy and renewable energy in general to the participants. Other than that, this training aims to provide information related to circular economy in general. Also, we did other activities too such as city (cultural) hunting and field visit which hope can provide new ideas and strategy which can be used for future work.

Circular Economy Challenges, Renewable Energy and Community Development, Energy Crops, Bioenergy Production and System were the topics covered during the CirculaWASTE Workshop in Belgium. The CirculaWASTE project made it easier for participants to comprehend the most recent EU directives and policies. In this context, the CirculaWASTE project helped with the development of new skills and gave an overview of circular economy applications and solutions at various geographic scales, such as at the national, regional, and local levels.The participants went through a rigorous training course on circular economy, renewable energy and bioenergy production.
