FERTILWASTES, which valorises co-products from waste treatment to obtain new useful products for agriculture, was also presented.

The BETA TC also presented at the BIT Congress the results of SMART-Plant, a project already completed that has helped to scale up technologies to recover high-value materials in wastewater treatment plants, and DECOST, a project that helps to incorporate community composting in Mediterranean villages as the main system for treating the organic fraction of municipal waste. In the stands area of the congress, CT BETA has had a permanent presence, with a display of recoverable waste and products obtained in projects such as VALORA, AccelWater or several BBI projects in which its Accounting and Sustainability Optimisation Area participates.

The BIT is a biennial congress that takes place simultaneously in Vic and Lleida, and was created with the aim of driving the transformation of the primary sector, promoting the incorporation of business strategies and technological innovations that allow a more efficient, healthy and environmentally friendly production of food and bioproducts.
