NoAW - Kickoff Meeting of the European-Chinese Research Innovation Action - Wednesday October 12, 2016 - Montpellier SupAgro/INRA Campus

NoAW (No Agricultural Waste) - Innovative approaches to turn agricultural waste into ecological and economic assets - Kickoff Meeting of the European-Chinese Research Innovation Action - Wednesday October 12, 2016 - Montpellier SupAgro/INRA Campus

Driven by a «zero-waste» society requirement, NoAW (NoAgriculturalWaste) is concerned with developing a circular economy approach applicable to agricultural wastes on a territorial and seasonal basis at different TRLs.
The NoAW project considers that mostly unavoidable and continuously generated agro-wastes biomass are a true resource. NoAW aims to pave the way for a sustainable agro-waste bio-refinery concept by shifting fromana-posteriori environmental assessment to an early eco-design approach.
NoAW intends to unlock the potential of agro-waste to be converted into a portfolio of eco-efficient products: bio-energy, bio-fertilizers, bio-packaging and bio-molecules, in symbiosis with urban waste conversion, and with out forgetting risks which emerge from circular management of agro-wastes.
NoAW is a European-Chinese Research Innovation Action coordinated by INRA and gathering 16 academic and 16 private partners, and focusing on targeted geographical case-studies such as Languedoc-Roussillon (France), Veneto (Italy), Bavaria (Germany), the Netherlands, Denmark, and also Serbia, Portugal, Switzerland and China.
