On November 27th, members of the Environmental Engineering group presented results at the MACRO final conference in Stockholm. The project MACRO (Food in Circular Robust Systems) aimed at stimulating innovation for source-separated management of urban organic waste flows within both municipalities and technology suppliers. The project has contributed to filling knowledge gaps regarding both technology and organizational structures. Through MACRO, more opportunities have been created for Swedish actors to develop cutting-edge knowledge in this area, which increases the opportunities for Sweden to positively contribute to the development of the sustainable cities of the future. Our group has contributed with research into the potential for black-soldier fly composting of food waste from kitchen grinders and studies of organizational prerequisites for implementing source-separated system.
