Selective collection of the organic waste in tourist areas and valorization in farm composting plants. (SCOW)
Date du début: 31 déc. 2012, Date de fin: 30 déc. 2015 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

The project in briefThe generation of organic solid waste is rising significantly everywhere in the Mediterranean region due to populations increase and development of industrial and agricultural sectors. This situation causes growing pressure on groundwater, soil and air and calls for strategies allowing for sound waste management systems.In addition to the lack in some Mediterranean countries of separate collection of solid and organic waste, the implementation of integrated waste management plans at local level is still undermined by the high costs of transport and treatment. In this framework, SCOW focuses on the collection of organic waste in tourist areas with a view to valorizing biowaste as compost for sustainable agriculture practices.Specific objectiveTo develop an integrated and environmentally organic waste management system, ensuring sustainable methods for collection and treatment by involving all the relevant waste treatment stakeholders and enhancing their knowledge. Expected Results: • Integrated and improved waste collection and recycling organic waste system, with small farm composting plants developed in the agricultural holdings situated near the tourist areas • Increased quantity of collected biowaste in the areas concerned by the project (approximately 7.000 tons per year) • Quality compost obtained from treated organic waste (approximately 2.000 tons per year) and used for agricultural purposes • New jobs opportunities created by the collection, transport and treatment processes of organic waste • Additional source of income made available for farmers thanks to the compost sale
