AcuComm's WasteView PROJECTS
The Waste Industry is new on a global and industrial scale, consequently, no standard industry product or activity interpretation or categorisation existed. Therefore, AcuComm has found it necessary to develop a categorisation from scratch and build it into the raw database, as well as in to the research process.
To this end we have identified a series of key indicators, including monetary values, throughput capacity, power generation, geographic scope, types of technology used, types of waste feedstock involved and companies/professional individuals involved.
This enables us to build a unique picture of waste investments, in the recent past, and looking forward into the future. Forecasting future levels of investment is a key element and aim of this process.
The raw data in the database is valuable in itself, but we have also developed a set of MS Excel analytics which turns the information into quantifiable comparative data for business intelligence. We have created a series of analytic models which turn out database into an easily-understood means of quantifying investment in the waste market. We have made significant improvements to the forecasting and estimation of data that gave us the ability to show a more complete and accurate snapshot of the Global Waste/Recycling markets.

The VINEYARDS4HEAT (VINYESXCALOR) project aims to apply and implement a Vineyards Virtuous Circle (VVC) as a local strategy to mitigate climate change, contributing to meeting the goals to reduce greenhouse gases (GHG) according to the SEAP (Sustainable Energy Action Plan). The VVC plans to make a profit from using vineyard prunings/waste to generate heat and cold for wineries. This VVC involves various organisations related to the biomass value chain: biomass suppliers from vineyards, biomass collectors and consumers of energy, with the supervision of an institutional guarantor and lead co-ordinator: the Municipality of Vilafranca.
Other partners involved are:
On 5th December 2018, it was announced that after demonstrating its viability with two and a half years of experience and co-ordination of the partners, it is now planned to move forward with the extension of the project including the establishment of a biomass heat network in Vilafranca del Penedès. The project has been presented to the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) for funding. The EU Life Programme has already provided funding for the initial project (LIFE 13 ENV/ES/000776).
The general objective of the project is to promote the use of renewable energies in municipal buildings and facilities with the installation of new points that use agricultural biomass for local self-consumption. The start-up of this new facility in the area of the sports complex involves reaching a production of 1 MW from renewable energy from vineyard prunings.
The specific objectives needed to achieve the main objective are the following:
The main expected results are:
