Value chains for disruptive transformation of urban biowaste into biobased products in the city context


Evaluation methodology for measuring the change

This document outlines the behavioural change methodology to evaluate citizen’s awareness and behaviours towards biowaste recycling and acceptance of products

Toolkit: Interventions for change

This document outlines interventions of change for improving the perception and acceptance of users of biowaste derived products.

Catalogue of urban biowaste solutions and good practices examples (M14, M42)

A catalogue of urban biowaste valorisation solutions and good practice examples will be developed based on a multicriteria assessment of examples promoting circular economy and solutions for urban biowaste into e.g. biobased chemicals, bio-based materials and food and feed additives/ingredients.

Communication and Dissemination Plan (M3, updated on M21)

This deliverable will be the first version of the Communication and Dissemination plan and will be updated in M21 It will include the assessment of dissemination activities in terms of impact and effectiveness

Business Models Analysis

The deliverable concerns the development and practical setup of new innovative business models based on the outcomes of the project. To this end, firstly identification and analysis of existing Business Models will take place. Collection and analysis of existing business models stemming both from the Circular Economy, namely Circular Business Models (CBMs), and Enabling Business Models (EBMs). The report will also record successful past application of Business Models in Circular Economy through the analysis of selected case studies having similar context with the Project’s PILOTs. Doing so, WaysTUP! project will be able to identify current business model’s trends and how these where successfully implemented in real-life conditions.

Market Outlook Report

This deliverable is focused on the development of a complete view of the entire urban biowaste value chain focusing on detailed market analysis The market outlook report will analyse 1 The market drivers and barriers to entry for technologies and endproducts within each country and on a broader European basis taking into accounteconomic scientifictechnological political and organisational factors for different geographic areas technological solutions endproducts and user groups 2 The economic models for the Pilot solutions including the value of the solutions to each stakeholder group ultimately driving the pricing of the solutions through public and private channels 3 Identification within each partner country of the potential markets for deployment beyond the PILOT stage including identification of potential early adopters

Dissemination Pack

This deliverable will include the Communication and Dissemination activities covering participation in relevant events and conferences, awareness-raising campaigns, organisation of the project final conference, press releases, articles in popular newspapers, news feeds and social media, production of all the promotional material required for the online communication activities and the awareness raising campaigns, brochures Project website, newsletters, etc.

Laboratory analysis protocol and methodology for executing WAC

Report on the development of a representative methodology for the conduction of Waste Analysis Campaigns WACs of different types of urban biowaste that will be used as feedstocks for the biobased products Strict sampling and preservation times will be followed in order to ensure the freshness of the samples This report will also include a common protocol for laboratory analysis for the detailed physicochemical characterization of urban biowaste according to recognised standard test methods

External Expert Advisory Board Report (First phase)

This deliverable aims to provide an overview of the most important points discussed during the different External Expert Advisory Board EEAB meetings of the WaysTUP project experts recommendations partners comments important issues raised etcRegarding the structure of the delivery this will include an overview of the role of the EEAB in the project description of the methodology for the selection process for the EEAB members for the different phase of the project a brief presentation and description of the members of EEAB details of the minutes of the meetings and finally an analysis of the recommendations of the members to the WaysTUP project

Report on barriers for urban biowaste valorisation for biobased products (M14, M42)

This deliverable will include the conceptual framework for cataloguing the main barriers related to urban biowaste valorisation for biobased products will take place. This will be achieved by performing web- and paper-based surveys and interviewing selected stakeholders such as waste management authorities, converters, consumers and legislators.

Project Management Handbook

This deliverable will outlines the Project Management Handbook It will comprehend the internal procedures of the WaysTUP project consortium in terms of project execution administrative management management structures communication and collaboration It contains all relevant information for consortium partners to refer to during the project

Policy baseline analysis (draft M18, due M24)

This report will include an inventory of policies, as well as a detailed analysis that will cover development directions of various policies, trends, drivers, obstacles, gaps, shortcomings and comparison of policies across countries, in order to identify key similarities and differences, and prospects for future policy development.

Database Management Plan adhering to the H2020 Open Research Data Pilot (state of play))

WaysTUP is committed to good data management In an effort to provide a management lifecycle of the data collected processed and generated within the project it is necessary to provide a Data Management Plan DMP This DMP describes how the research data will be made findable accessible interoperable and reusable Deliverable 92 follows the guidelines for FAIR Data Management set by the EC H2020 to submit a first version of our DMP as a deliverable within the first 6 months of the project It will also make use of the Commissions DMP template as a guideline
