Berlin: Online workshop on implementing and replication of systemic circular economy solutions – 31.05.2023

TREASoURcE is organizing an online workshop on implementing and replication of systemic circular economy solutions targeted for local Berlin area stakeholders on May 31st, 2023 at 9.00-11.00 CET. 

WHO We welcome local stakeholders from the Berlin area, like municipality and regional representatives, industry dealing or interested in these streams, as well as supportive stakeholders like policy makers and funding parties to take part in the interactive open discussion on identifying local needs, challenges, and motives to take up developed open access systemic circular economy solutions.

WHY Workshop aims at gathering insights on what kind of factors would have to be taken into consideration locally when circular solutions would be implemented in Berlin area as well as identify your interests, needs and possible challenges regarding plastic waste recycling, utilization of bio-based side and waste streams for biogas and composting, as well as repurposing electric vehicle batteries as stationary energy storage systems. We’ll be hosting three parallel sessions for each of the value chains to discuss the developed circular solutions in more detail and identifying potential for further uptake and replication.
