About SCOW

The aim of SCOW project, funded by the ENPI CBCMED Program, is to develop low cost, technically simple and high quality biowaste collection and recycling models in Mediterranean 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.
