Where do the Amsterdam Smart City Programs take place?
Most programs take place, or at least start at, the Smart City Lab on the Marineterrein Innovation District. This is a "small space for big ideas" where we showcase examples of smart city solutions from Amsterdam. The Smart City Experience Lab is also a workplace where Amsterdam Smart City partners meet and collaborate. Groups visiting the Experience Lab can also visit the Marineterrein Amsterdam Living Lab on their own or as a part of an organized program.

Covid-19 restrictions
Due to government-imposed regulations in response to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, we are currently only able to host programs online.

Small scale Waste Transformer | Organic waste into value on your own site

Featured image

A Waste Transformer is a small-scale anaerobic digester which organisations place on their own site, transforming their own organic waste into green energy (biogas, electricity, heat) and fertilizer. A circular economy around your own waste streams.

A Waste Transformer is the perfect solution for organisations which produce between 600KG and 3600KG of organic waste per day. Normally waste is a cost, with a Waste Transformer it becomes a source of positive (financial) change. It is a high tech installation, but with low tech daily usability. This Waste Transformer in Amsterdam, transforms the organic waste from 10 restaurants, a hotel and micro brewery into green energy. The fertilizer is given back to the park, and the energy created turning the lights on in the restaurants.

A Waste Transformer is suitable in many situations, worldwide. It provides jobs for people with a distance to the labour market, it reduces greatly your waste handling costs, and it creates green energy and fertilizer. Then we have not even discussed the positive stories each Waste Transformer owner can share with their clients and stakeholders.

Upcycling waste, on your own premises.

By the way. A Waste Transformer is a closed systems, which means you don't smell it once it is inside the Transformer. Good energy!
