Technical workshops

Technical staff from the GISWASTE partners - AZTI and LK - held several meetings in October, November and December in order to validate the development of the GIS tool on which they are working.The meetings were opportunities to discuss the results obtained during the animal feed and biogas plant pilot schemes conducted by LKS using the tool.These meetings are proving to be effective to advance towards the final validation of the GIS and fine tune its potential and scope.

AZTI and Geograma technicians have been holding weekly technical meetings to define each of the parts that will make up the GISWASTE tool. The aim of those meetings was to progress in developing and programming data loading, visualising GIS maps, the optimal calculation of the logistic routes, along with the environmental, economic and technical viabilities.

Technical progress meeting for the B4 action of the Life GISWASTE project. AZTI and LKS technicians took part in the meeting to discuss the progress in the tool validation and to plan the steps to be followed until completion at the end of 2016. This action was an opportunity to compare and validate the results obtained in the preliminary project, conducted to pinpoint the strengths of the tool and perform any adjustments needed.

LKS and AZTI technicians held a face-to-face meeting at the LKS offices in the Bizkaia Technology Park in Derio in order to discuss the progress in the project’s B4 action (Validation of the Tool) and the steps to be followed to its completion. This actions aims to compare and validate the results obtained using this tool with a preliminary projects (conventional environmental and economic-technical study) conducted in the traditional way to see the goodness of the tool and, where applicable, to perform the necessary adjustments for the biogas and animal feed options.

AZTI and GEOGRAMA technicians held a technical meeting at the LKS offices located in the Bizkaia Technology Park (Derio) in order to launch the B4 task, the validation of the tool. During the meeting, they discussed the first steps to be taken to conduct the environmental and economic-technical surveys for 2 unconstructed plant proposals (one for biogas and another for animal feed) in order to subsequently validate the goodness of the tool.

AZTI and GEOGRAMA technicians held a videoconference when the Geograma technicians showed the latest advances in the developments to load the information. The meeting focused on an exhaustive explanation of how the data is loaded, along with how to create scenarios to be assessed by the tool. The meeting ended with a small demonstration simulating a scenario to see the application potential of those developments for the future of the tool.

Communication activities coordination meeting, when the participants discussed how to improve dissemination regarding attendance at international conferences and fairs, and how to identify the technical journals interested in disseminating our project. They also considered the possibility of set up a web domain with the databases, along with the pilot versions of the tool being developed. They also suggested other possible dissemination and communication actions for the project.

Technical progress meeting of the B2 and B3 Actions of the Life GISWASTE project with the participation of Geograma and AZTI-Tecnalia technicians. The multi-criterion decision methodology, the different existing methods and the opportunities they offer were discussed in order to select the method that best adjusts to the project goals. Progress was in turn made regarding defining the operational framework in which to break down the different operations that the tool will have to follow to guarantee the correct assessment.

Technical progress meeting of Actions B1, B2 and B3 of the Life GISWASTE project. It included the participation of technicians from Geograma and AZTI-Tecnalia, where they debated about contrasting the databases related to the viability factors solely associated to the producer, including their limiting and conditioning ranges and the relative values for each type of by-product. They also analysed the weighting criteria for each factor and type of by-product, and there was progress in the analysis of the preliminary goodness-of-fit of the values resulting from the weighting obtained to date.
