The Urban Ecology Agency of Barcelona (BCNecologia) has coordinated the project 'Scow', Selective Collection of Organic Material, with the aim of finding solutions for collecting and recycling "less expensive, easier and higher quality" organic matter and has reached in its application in Pallars Sobirà (Lleida), an 80 % of selective waste collection, as its promoters explained at a press conference on Wednesday.



The Scow, funded by the European Union and supported in Catalonia by the Catalan Waste Agency has launched 14 small-scale composting plants in six countries -- Spain, France, Italy, Malta, Palestine and Israel-- with capacity for 8,200 tons and they are expected to collect, in 2016nearly 2,300 tons of compost  for agricultural uses and gardening.
