MUBIGEN was a Pathfinder project financed by Climate KIC within the European Institute of Innovation and Technology
It aimed at creating a potential business model for an integrated value chain, in which cities produce their own marketable and storable energy carriers and biomaterials from unused urban grass cuttings with an innovative technology. The Pathfinder activities focused on two complementing strands:

  • A joint effort on the regional level with municipal stakeholders, plant manufacturers and academics will demonstrate the potential positive climate impact and prepare the exploitation of the business idea in two different European cities.
  • Detailed preparation of a European network, which transfers the business idea to other European municipalities, connects the participating regions and stakeholders and provides services for a successful implementation of the business idea.
