The WASTEred project aims to promote the use and encourage the market penetration of LODOred, a new and ECO-Innovative product, in the food industry (slaughterhouses, meat processing and dairy companies) in order to reduce the large amounts of sewage sludge generated in their wastewater treatment plants. The expected reduction will decrease the environmental impact of these sectors, as well as the costs associated to the sludge management.
