Back in January 2020, INDEREN successfully delivered and installed 2 digester tanks, an important milestone for the Work Package 4: Nutrients recovery from urban biowaste.
9 months later, in September 2020, NURESYS shipped the Pilot Unit from Belgium to Murcia. Once there, it was coupled to the anaerobic digestor previously installed. The project coordinator, CETENMA, Ferrovial and INDEREN were present to welcome the Pilot Unit and its installation.
Fast forward a month, Entomo Agroindustrial delivered its pilot unit in November of 2020. This unit is designed to grow Black Soldier Fly larvae, which later will be used to produce protein powder.
Finally, in January 2021, local policy officers from the Region of Murcia visited the facilities of the ValueWaste project in Cañada Hermosa (Murcia).
Altogether, the different pilot units will work to carry out processes developed and designed by the ValueWaste project. This system will be replicable across other cities throughout Europe, maximising the potential impact of the work done.
