The matchmaking mission is organized in institutional partnership with Sebrae (Serviço Brasileiro de Apoio à Micro e Pequena Empresa).
Low Carbon Business Action in Brazil will conduct in 2017 a second matchmaking mission addressing the high potential for cooperation in Biogas and Solid Waste Management between Brazilian and European entrepreneurs.

These stages of the waste management process are directly related to environmental sustainability concepts such as "the circular economy" and "waste to energy", opening prospects for the transformation of the business as usual scenarios, globally, both in the solid waste management and biogas production.
As Brazil seeks to enforce the National Policy for Solid Waste (Law 1305/2010) - this EU sponsored matchmaking mission offers a great opportunity for waste operators to comply with national regulations through the upgrade of technologies and processes in place.

Considering the technical and entrepreneurial scope of the LCBA project, the delimitation of technologies is as follows:
