Circular Economy in Food and Nutrients

13. Juli um 10:00 - 12:00


Circular SMEs across Europe „Good practices from Barcelona to Bottrop“, virtual itinerary Stop in Poland and NRW!

13 July 10:00-12:00 CET
Host:  Innowo  & Zenit

As a global community with a global food web, we need to address several major challenges of the present and future that affect us and the planet at the intersection of food production and management: Climate change, global population growth, changing diets, food waste and CO2 emissions, just to name a few. It is becoming increasingly clear that a shift to a circular approach to food and nutrient management is needed, where food mimics natural regenerative systems in which waste serves as a raw material for another cycle. Redesigning our food system requires innovative thinking, ranging from sustainable food production, smart logistics and mindful management of waste cascades to innovative approaches to urban refineries that create entirely new products from residuals or inedible food. During the CE tour stop on food and nutrients, we will meet European companies that have taken up the challenge of working with biodegradable resources in a circular economy. We will hear about practical experiences from different perspectives at the interface of food and the circular economy and participate in a panel discussion with several pioneers of the movement
