SCOW – Selective Collection of the Organic Waste in touristic areas – was a project funded by the EU between 2013-2015.
From SCOW website: ‘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. SCOW 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.’
Participants were entities from countries around the Mediterranean Sea and among the participants were ‘Agenzia di Sviluppo Gal Genovese (The development Agency Gal Genovese)’. They choose as a part of their project to install three Big Hanna composters in the Genova area, in City of Ne, Villaggio del Ragazzo Institute and at the Marco Polo Institute in Genova.
Agenzia di Sviluppo Gal Genovese have made a film about the project, but even if the project took place a few years ago it still is most relevant information when making decision on how convert biowaste to high quality compost and closing the loop by using the compost for improving the soil.
