Project BG05M2OP001-1.002-0019 „Clean technologies for sustainable environment – waters, waste, energy for circular economy“

The aim of the project is to be created an effectively functioning infrastructure in the field of: Control, treatment, management of waters; Processing, recycling, recovery and disposal of solid waste; Realization of energy and resource effective economy through obtaining renewable and alternative energy sources, materials and resources; Stimulation of the innovations in the technologies for sustainable environment and circular economy; Development and realization of the entrepreneurship of the young specialists in the above mentioned fields.

The centre of competence Clean & Circle composes of three vertical and four horizontal modules. The vertical modules are “Waters”, “Solid waste” and “Transfer”. In the modules Waters and Waste there are two directions – “Monitoring, assessment and identification of the problems” and “Clean technologies” – development of real clean technologies. In both modules as horizontal priorities are included activities on circular economy and the achievement of energy and resource effectiveness.

All the activities in CC will be united in an electronical cloud for exchange and fast usage and structuring of the information. An important priority is the innovative activity based on superior achievements in the scientific research activity. It is planned a process control in real time through automated chemical, physical, technological, microbiological and molecular methods. Key focus is set on the “Transfer” module. The planned activities in it are related to the education, distribution of the results and the technological entrepreneurship. They include educational and qualification programs for teaching of bachelors, masters, PhD students, post-graduate students from the business and scientific institutions.

Leading partner of CC is Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski” and partners of the projects are: University of architecture, civil engineering and geodesy, University of forestry, University “Prof. Asen Zlatarov” – Burgas, The Rostislaw Kaishew Institute of Physical Chemistry, Institute of organic chemistry with a centre of phytochemistry, The Stephan Angeloff Institute of Microbiology, Foundation “Cleantech Bulgaria”.

Associated partners of the projects are: Sofia municipality, “Sofiyska voda” AD, Interplast BG Ltd., Energy agency – Plovdiv, University of Modena – Italy.
