IRIS Technology launches “BioWaste Hub”
Did you know that more than 100 million tonnes of organic waste is thrown away every year within the European Union?
Currently, 75% of organic waste goes to landfill or is incinerated, causing major environmental problems as it pollutes soil, groundwater and emits greenhouse gases. The remaining percentage is mainly used to generate biogas and compost as a biological fertiliser. In other words, the amount of organic waste that is cycled back into the economy, i.e. used to produce goods of economic value, is very low.
