    Previous Conferences


    ISWM-TINOS is a LIFE + Environment Policy and Governance Project co-funded by the European Commission. The duration of the project is 46 months starting on the 1st of October 2011. The implementation of the project takes place in Tinos Island, Greece under the coordination of the Municipality of Tinos and with the cooperation of the National Technical University of Greece, the Università degli Studi di Verona and the Institute for Solid Fuels Technology and Applications of the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas.
    The main objective of ISWM-TINOS project is the development and evaluation of an Integrated Solid Waste Management scheme for solid waste in Tinos in line with the Waste Framework Directive 2008/98/ΕC. The ISWM scheme includes the separate collection of each type of recyclable (glass, metal, paper, plastic) as well as of biowaste (mainly kitchen waste) and the subsequent treatment of the collected biowaste with aerobic treatment (composting). The pilot scheme has been set for a sample of 100 households located in Tinos Island. Furthermore, the anaerobic digestion of the biowaste is investigated at the experimental hall of the University of Verona in Treviso (Italy) with “synthetic” biowaste of the same characteristics with the biowaste collected in the Municipality of Tinos.
