Publication and impact-tool Re-Store available

In this (Dutch) publication we describe the results of the Re-Store project:
- a tool to measure the ecological, economical and social impact of initiatives that collect and process organic waste (GFE-afval) separately.
-simulation models to gain insight in parameters that could forecast the success of initiatives to process organic waste as a collective.

We also made short movies to explain the results, available at www.hva.nl/restore

Re-store

Featured image

In the research project Re-store knowledge is developed how to assess the impact of solutions to process organic waste. What indicators are most important and how will it be possible to measure those.

In order to ensure that there is enough food, materials and energy for everyone in 2050, our economy must become circular. There is no more waste in a circular economy - waste is raw material. Based on this vision, the AUAS works on knowledge development about circular products and processes. The Re-Organize project investigated how organic waste in urban agriculture areas can be reused locally using new solutions. Examples include local bio-fermentation, composting and insect breeding. The new Re-StORe project will extend the scope of urban agriculture research into the built environment.

Would you like to know more about the project or would you like to get involved, please contact Maarten Mulder, projectmanager of Re-store, m.mulder3@hva.nl

Urban Technology publication: opportunities and bottlenecks for the decentralized processing of organic waste

Featured image

The Netherlands is in a transition to the circular economy, in which as much waste as possible is converted into valuable products. The recovery of raw materials and energy from organic residual streams is one of the most important elements of the circular economy.

In the project Re-Organise, the Hogeschool van Amsterdam, together with Aeres Hogeschool Dronten, investigated the opportunities and bottlenecks for the decentralized processing of organic waste. The reason for this were the questions on this subject that were posed by more than ten companies.

These practical questions led to the central research question: how can organic residual streams be decentrally processed and utilized by the use of new technical and organizational solutions, in order to create more economic and ecological value?

Two urban agriculture locations served as a case study to conduct practical research into organic residual flows and business models. In addition, projects were carried out together with companies to optimize the techniques for the decentralized processing of organic waste.

The research project Re-Organize has produced concrete results for industry, policy makers, researchers and education. This can be found in the publication via the link below.

Publicaties beschikbaar van resultaten

Er zijn drie publicaties beschikbaar die de tussenresultaten van het onderzoek tonen. Deze zijn te vinden op de website van Re-Organise.
1. Een overzicht en informatie over technieken die ingezet kunnen worden om organische reststromen decentraal te verwerken.
2. Een overzicht van de reststromen, behoeften en eerste oplossingsrichtingen bij de stadslandbouwlocatie NoordOogst.
3. Een overzicht van de reststromen, behoeften en eerste oplossingsrichtingen bij de stadslandbouwlocatie Tuinen van West.
