Vlaco npo was founded in 1992, to support and implement the policy of biowaste in Flanders. We are a membership organisation with representation of the Flemish government and the private sector including AD installations – both agricultural, industrial or intermunicipal.. All techniques are best available techniques (BAT) and monitored as such through Vlaco’s quality control. All of Vlaco’s activities are intended to defend the interests of the sector and support the sustainable material cycle of biowaste. Vlaco pursues, within the framework of green energy, a synergy of material and energy recuperation. Vlaco is affilitated to EBA (European Biogas Association), ECN (European Compost Network) and supports an European QAS (Quality Assurance Scheme). Vlaco has wide knowledge to disseminate as to the availability, use, and benefits (agronomic, economic, and ecologic benefits). Vlaco has (co-)conducted or been part of several research-projects in recent years (Interreg Biorefine, H2020 Nutriman, VIS DIMA, NpirriK, UNIR, Tetra Recidigest,..).
