REINWASTE (Remanufacture the food supply chain by testing INNovative solutions for zero inorganic WASTE) is a three-year (2018-2020) research and technological development project, co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund. It comes under the Framework of Interreg MED and its total budget accounts for 2.499.304€. Project partners have coined the motto “Prevent waste disposal is more sustainable and less expensive”; they aim at developing cost effective sustainable techniques to reduce inorganic waste, such as packaging and similar materials, fostering the adoption of innovative green concepts by agri-food SMEs.

 

 

The innovative aspect of REINWASTE is the involvement of both agriculture food-chain and food industry stakeholders of three important European countries: Italy, Spain and France. In Italy, the project will focus on the dairy chain in Emilia-Romagna Region: relevant Clusters will evaluate its feasibility; in Spain and France, the entire horticulture and meat sectors will be respectively tested.

Thanks to the involvement of industrial experts and R&I Institutions, REINWASTE aim at:

   
Selecting 30 companies for each Country (15 from agricultural sector and 15 from industrial one) for testing the feasibility of prevention or recovering waste measures;
Optimizing transnational cluster activity and innovative networks in the Mediterranean area;
Reducing the environmental impact of the food industry.
