About Us

BloW uP, Balkans Waste to Products.

Balkans Waste to Products: transfer of NoI model to Balkan area:
de-siloing new waste-derived raw materials and developing new applications.

BloW-uP RIS proposal is an outreach of FREECATS NoI which will act as a “chaperon” transferring
NoI’s best practices and business models to stakeholders of countries part of the ESEE area to widen KIC community and de-siloing new themes.
The focus will be on technological exploitation of nanomaterials obtained from waste: iron oxides nanoparticles obtained from iron mining sludge (University Banja Luka, Bosnia Herzegovina) and carbon based materials coming from low rank coal and agro-waste (IOCCP-BAS, Bulgaria).
Such materials has high potential (in some cases already proven at starting TRL) to be applied in a number of technological areas: additive for lubricants (in collaboration with the company Tehosint d.o.o. and the University of Salerno); materials for fuel cells, electrolysers and batteries; catalysts for cleantech and eco-industry, as well as the mining sector.
This will impact on several markets including automotive sector (lubricants, Fuel Cells Vehicles), eco-industry (biomass transformation to bio-products, green hydrogen production), cleantech (waste water and air purification and decontamination). Moreover, the applications fall in the framework of circular economy and waste to products strategy.


Why Chose Us?

Key activities

Key activities of the BloW-uP project will be:

  • Widening KIC community in ESEE countries;
  • Transfer KIC NoI model to ESEE countries;
  • Increase TRL of waste-derived raw materials technological applications;
  • Scouting new applications suitable to reach TRL 5.
