Circular economy

One of ADVID’s strategic objectives is to boost the transition to a more circular economy, by applying the scientific knowledge to the sector’s technological development and  innovation, in order to promote waste reduction and the recovery of generated waste – from the waste water to the viticulture by-products.

The Circular Economy is a strategic concept based on the reducing, reusing, recovering, and recycling of materials and energy. Nowadays, Circular Economy represents one of the main ADVID’s lines of action, by being a key factor to the promotion of a sustainable development and one of the milestones of the European Green Deal.  


  • Support the transition to a circular economy through R&D&I activities.
  • Apply technical and scientific knowledge, in order to reduce waste in the wine value-added chain and accelerate the end of the life cycle of its products or by-products.
  • Stimulate the sector’s global competitiveness and a sustainable economic growth.
  • Promote the dissociation of economic growth and the increase in the consumption of natural resources.
  • Boost the development of solutions for a more circular production – from a greater energetic efficiency to a more efficient reuse of by-products and viticulture waste, such as the use of wastewater for irrigation.
  • Raise awareness about the environmental limitations on the extraction of the planet’s resources and raise environmental awareness from consumers and the sector’s main agents.
