FEDACOVA, together with Mixmatters Project partner Sitra, visited Iberian Premium Fruits’ facilities on 12 July to define the company’s collaboration in this initiative. In the project, packaged fruit and vegetable waste will be recovered to obtain fibres and sugars, among other value-added compounds.
The European project MixMatters presents an innovative, integrated and versatile solution for the efficient recovery of mixed biowaste consisting of a modular separation unit and a recovery hub adapted to the type of waste. Over the course of the project, three demonstration projects will be carried out in Spain, two of them located in Valencia and one in the region of Almeria. By separating and recovering 48 tonnes of mixed biowaste, our objective is to avoid 21 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year during the demonstration phase.
