On Monday 8 March 2021 the researchers of Flora Toscana and of the CREA-OF met Massimo Centemero, of the Consorzio Italiano Compostatori (Italian Composting Consortium), and Sofia Mannelli, of the Associazione Chimica Verde (Association for Green Chemistry).
During the meeting, Maria Castellani (technical manager of the LIFE SUBSED project) illustrated the objectives and expected results. Particular attention was paid to the environmental issue and to the Italian legislation on the reuse of materials classified as waste. The latter represents today a significant regulatory barrier, which can slow down the transition towards a circular economy.
The meeting represented an opportunity for a fruitful comparison and exchange of ideas on the current regulatory framework and on possible development paths for sustainable solutions such as the one proposed by LIFE SUBSED.
