SMART WASTE
STARTUP EUROPE ACCELERATHON

The United Nations affirm that, by 2050, 68% of the global population will live in urban areas. Nowadays with 55% of the population living in theses areas, solid waste dumps in and around cities are highly contributing to increase levels of air pollution, which has a negative effect on the health of millions of people around the world. The growth of global population and the increase of consumption are also causing a rethinking of waste management strategies in urban areas. In this sense, it is intended to encourage the development of projects that allow a sustainable use of the urban waste.
