In the Interreg EMR project ‘From Waste 2 Profit’ five partners, POM Limburg (BE), LIOF (NL), EFA (G) and Zenit (G), cooperate to strengthen companies’ waste management in the Meuse-Rhine Euregion. To achieve this goal grants are offered to SMEs for having an audit conducted of their waste streams.
