• The event held in Tunis brought together stakeholders involved in effective and sustainable water management in the Mediterranean region.
• LIFE ECOdigestion 2.0 has been presented as a success case
Fostering synergies, exploring scalability opportunities, forging business partnerships, and much more: the Mediterranean Water Forum has represented for the LIFE ECOdigestion 2.0 project a unique opportunity in the field of water management and wastewater management, bringing together experts, innovators and policy makers to dialogue and collaborate for a more sustainable future.
Juanma Revuelta, CEO of the Finnova Foundation, presented the project as a success case in terms of practical and effective solutions to transform organic waste into renewable energy, thus contributing to the circular economy in the water sector.
The Forum, which brings together participants from all over the Mediterranean, has established itself as a critical space for the exchange of knowledge and experiences, as well as for the establishment of strategic partnerships that drive positive change. Finnova has used this platform to foster relationships, expand networks and create partnerships that promote innovative and sustainable solutions.
About LIFE ECOdigestion 2.0
LIFE ECOdigestion 2.0 is a pilot demonstration project, funded by LIFE Programme and with a budget of more than 970,000 EUR, which generates biogas in sewage treatment plant digesters by mixing putrescible organic waste (slurry, poultry, organic fractions, MSW, horeca, etc.), thus transforming sewage sludge into green energy through technology. The initiative led by Global Omnium, (Spain), in collaboration with the Finnova Foundation (Belgium) and Águas do Centro Litoral (Portugal) aims to become the most versatile digestion control tool on the market, achieving environmental and economic benefits through the production of biogas by making optimal use of waste. Thanks to this technology, it favours the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and the use of sewage sludge generated in wastewater treatment processes, thus achieving a positive impact on the environment. This programme is easily scalable with other funds such as FEDER, NextGenerationEU or RePowerEU.
