... Bioeconomy in BW Biowaste to Products: biorefinery transforms biowaste into new products In 2020, Germany’s population collected over five million tonnes of biowaste in their organic waste bins. Most of this was composted, and some was fermented into biogas. Scientists in Baden-Württemberg think there's room for more. They want to transform biowaste into new products in a biorefinery. The idea is to produce biodegradable plant pots, mulch material, fertilisers, enzymes and biobased plastics in addition to biogas. The ‘Biowaste to Products’ (BW2Pro) project is being financed with 5.87 million euros in EU and state funding.
