Circular inspiration: Oslo’s circular bio-resources
Oslo’s circular bio-resources
Oslo has been developing a waste management system based on circular principles to ensure separate waste collection is maximised and transform waste into secondary raw materials. To do so it has actively engaged with citizens, farmers as well as with its city’s public transportation company. For example, Oslo transforms food waste into biogas, which is used as fuel by buses and garbage collection trucks in the city. Find out more about Oslo’s circular economy best practice.
Lan Marie Nguyen Berg, deputy mayor for environment and transport, said: “When 660,000 citizens in Oslo do their part of the job by source separating their waste, reuse and discard less waste, the City of Oslo has to do our part. All waste can either be recycled, reused or treated in a sustainable way!"
