The CEMOWAS2 project: Circular and eco-systematic management of organic waste and waste water is led by ValOrizon (Syndicat de valorisation et traitement des déchets ménagers du Lot-et-Garonne), and its partners are 8 Portuguese, Spanish and French entities, including Lisboa E-Nova and Universidade Nova de Lisboa.

CEMOWAS2 is aimed at reinforcing the capacities of the authorities responsible for implementing participative, sustainable territorial strategies through a management that is in line with the systemic approaches of the circular economy of solid and liquid waste management services.

The project will enable management strategies to be built and will demonstrate the feasibility of specific solutions regarding organic waste and waste water. These models will be optimised and transferred from certain territories to others, in order to reach a higher degree of environmental quality in the use of resources and, consequently, in protecting the natural heritage of the areas that are part of this initiative.

As such, Lisboa E-Nova will promote two demonstrative actions on recycled water and waste, in the area of Parque das Nações, covering the re-use of treated waste water for irrigating green spaces and the topic of organic waste compost in school canteens that have kitchen gardens.

The Project also has the following associated Portuguese partners: Agência Portuguesa do Ambiente, Câmara Municipal de Lisboa (Lisbon City Council), Junta de Freguesia do Parque das Nações (Parque das Nações Civil Parish), Associação Nacional de Municípios Portugueses (National Association of Portuguese Municipalities), Águas do Tejo Atlântico and SIMARSUL.
