More than 33 million tons of bio-based waste are produced in the European Union per year. As this waste can be useful for businesses, such as the production of bio-chemicals, bio-fuels, fibres and bio-energy, InSymbio uses this potential and created a digital platform. This platform enables companies to re-use their bio-based residues and by-products, to discover agricultural and bioeconomic data and to promote their commitment to sustainability. By doing so, revenues can be increased by 40% as waste does not need to be disposed of and can instead be used as a resource. The process at the InSymbio marketplace starts with companies offering or requesting raw materials and then finding the best opportunities to convert them into a resource and finish the deal with a click.
Businesses provide InSymbio with the data about what they want to sell or about what they are looking for to buy. In addition, they collect and organize agricultural and bioeconomic data and make it available on the platform.
InSymbio is one of the over 550 use cases published on the European Data Portal. If you are aware of another inspiring use case, share your experience and knowledge on different applications and websites using open data with the EDP via mail, Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn.
