What is the Tech4Biowaste database?

The Tech4Biowaste technology database will be a “Wiki” (similar to Wikipedia) to organize the content and to meet the specific needs of both: technology providers and users. Soon, the Wiki will be accessible via this page. At this stage of the project, the Wiki is in preparation and will be opened in several steps:

  • First, for a test panel of evaluators
  • At the moment, for a community that can provide information on the aimed technologies
  • In the last phase, it will be made available to the interested public

The Tech4Biowaste database is on the hunt for innovators that want to showcase their biowaste conversion technologies

The backbone of the biowaste valorisation technology database is finalised. Now, the hunt for technology providers, in other words, the population of the database, can start with the aim to have a finalised and ready-to-search database by the end of 2022.

Different types of biowaste on the one end – A long wish list of bio-based end products on the other. The Tech4Biowaste database sits right in the middle, ready to connect these dots with emerging and innovative technologies, ready to solve your biowaste problems, ready to pull your technology out of the dark.

Currently, the database contains basic information on established as well as emerging technologies to convert food processing waste, organic municipal waste, and garden waste into valuable products.

With the backbone of the database now in place, we call on biowaste technology providers and their representatives to help us populate the database with company profiles and technology-specific details. We are on the hunt for innovators that want to promote their technology and help us make the database richer and more relevant, also in the long run.

Technology searchers can find information on your company and details on your conversion or treatment technology in the database. They can compare technologies, find the technology that best suits their application and get in touch with you.

Tech4Biowaste database premiere, 21 March 2022

On the occasion of the recent release of the backbone of its biowaste valorisation technology database, Tech4Biowaste organised a webinar on Monday 21 March 2022. The aim was to inform the targeted audience (primarily technology providers, and their representative organisations) about the purpose of the database and the benefits of being included in it.

Currently, the database (www.tech4biowaste.eu/wiki) contains basic information on established as well as emerging technologies to convert food processing waste, organic municipal waste, and garden waste into valuable products.

During the webinar, the idea behind the database was first explained by project coordinator John Vos (BTG). This was followed by a tour through the database, given by Dr Lars Krause (nova-Institute). His colleague, Achim Raschka illustrated in a live demonstration how easy it is to edit company and technology profiles in the Wiki-based database. Finally, Tech4Biowaste stakeholder relations manager Stef Denayer (BBEPP) informed about the various benefits for technology developers offered by the database, such as getting EU-wide visibility.

Questions from the audience were answered, in writing during the oral presentations as well as orally during the dedicated Q&A session at the end of the webinar. You can find the questions below.

Premiere of the Tech4Biowaste database: Webinar slides

The database is publicly accessible since 7 March 2022: www.tech4biowaste.eu/wiki

At the moment, the focus will be on biowaste according to the definition by the EC. This includes garden and food waste. The technologies in the database may be more general and cover more feedstocks and it is foreseen to also expand the database to other feedstocks in the future.

It is foreseen to run the database for at least 10 years in the framework of the Renewable Carbon Initiative – and hopefully, also expand the topics during that period.

Only users who are registered by the project team can edit/add information. There is an internal evaluation process to guarantee the quality of database content.

Yes, that is correct. An account is only required for editing and adding your company or technology.

Are you a start-up, a spinoff, a smaller or larger company? Do you want your biowaste technology (established or emerging) to be included in the database? This is how you can participate:
