HANDBOOKS

Online Handbook for small scale composting facility management (SCOW project)

Specific technical documentation for support and dissemination of composting practices generated in the SCOW Project (Selective Collection of Organic Waste in Tourist Areas). The aim of SCOW, funded by the ENPI CBCMED Programme, is to develop low cost, technically simple and high quality biowaste collection and recycling models in territories with touristic areas and agricultural activity. It wants to build up a sustainable, innovative and local treatment of the biowaste in decentralized small-scale composting plants, developed essentially in agricultural holdings situated near the biowaste production areas in the partners’ territories

Research strategic agenda of the environmental Galician technological platform (ENV.I.TE.)

In March 30, 2010, the strategic agenda of R+D for Galician environmental sector was publicly presented in Santiago de Compostela (the first of this kind in Europe). In this agenda, the challenges and necessities to be adopted in environmental questions in Galicia from now to 2020 for industries, companies and society are described. The responsible redaction team has collaborated with the different platform working groups (water, air, soil, wastes and environmental technologies) to recompile their worries, the most important necessities, opinions and contributions, that there were worked in and incorporated in the agenda.
