Puglia – circular economy and innovative startups in the press sector

Circular Economy and Innovative Startups in Puglia - Press Region

A meeting with Councilor Maraschio on February 23rd

With the approval of the Regional Sustainable Development Strategy, Puglia has openly embarked on the path towards sustainability, integrating environmental and economic policies. On Wednesday 23 February at 12:00 in the conference room (fifth floor) of the Puglia Region (via Gentile 52, Bari) will be discussed in a meeting aimed at promoting innovation experiences in sustainable waste management, a program supported by Activity regional “Extraction of talent”.

“Guaranteeing sustainable models of production and consumption” responds to the mission of Goal 12 of the United Nations 2030 Agenda, which points out the areas of application of these sustainable models, either in production and consumption over time, or in the entire economic system. . The importance assumed by companies, the world of production, whose role must be re-established according to the need to guarantee sustainability, is therefore clear. Equally necessary is a change in the consumption model, where citizen-consumer behavior has to be driven more by models of social and environmental sustainability.

Councilor for the Environment of the Puglia Region, avv. ARTI Puglia in the person of Anna Grazia Maraschio, Dr. Stefano Marastoni, Head of the STAR Facility Center Laboratory of the University of Foggia, Prof. Matteo Francavilla, sole director of startup Arabat, Dot. Rafael Nachiero, and Eng. Leonardo Binetti Associate Professor at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. The meeting was moderated by Dr. Gian Maria Gasperi, Coordinator of the Technical-Scientific Support Committee for Startups.

The experience of Arabat, an innovative startup made up of five very young Apulian graduates, will be presented as a case study. The AraBat uses citrus waste in an unprecedented and sustainable way to extract lithium and other precious metals from used batteries.
