The RISE Foundation is currently involved in a project called 'Systemic large scale eco-innovation to advance Circular Economy and mineral recovery from organic waste in Europe (SYSTEMIC)'. SYSTEMIC is a project funded under the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation H2020 for the period 2017-2021. The SYSTEMIC consortium includes 15 partners from 7 EU member states.

SYSTEMIC recognizes Europe’s challenge to tackle the increasing resources constraint and to facilitate the transition towards a more circular economy (COM,2015-614). SYSTEMIC addresses these needs by identifying systemic innovation approaches to recover and recycle valuable mineral components from organic waste streams and to integrate them optimally into a local or regional circular economy. This will be done through:

  • Effective combination of anaerobic digestion with novel nutrient recovery technologies for fertilizer production.
  • Development enhanced Circular Economy business models. 
  • Creation of a roadmap to facilitate solutions for biowaste in the EU.
