How can we stimulate innovation in the waste/resource management sector up to 2020 and beyond?

The ReNEW innovation roadmap, describes possible routes to maximize resource efficiency, recycling and waste valorisation. As a result of the Technology Foresight Conference held in April 2013, eight technologies with a high innovation potential were selected. These technologies aim to convert both organic as well as inorganic waste streams into materials that can be re-used as resources.
