The first step of the project activities is a detailed analysis of the APW generation in the areas of the Province of BAT and of the Municipality of Ilida, and of the current situation about APW collection, transportation and disposal. The analysis examines the current practices and possible critical legislative, technical, social and economical factors. The areas subjected to intensive use of APW are examined by statistical data and remote sensing surveys. On this basis, a Geographical Information System is implemented, so enabling the possibility to investigate different development scenarios, and to introduce these results into a Decision Support System (DSS) able to plan optimized APW fluxes.

The results of the analysis of the territorial distribution of the estimated agricultural plastic waste in the Ilida municipality can be consulted here. The results of the analysis of the BAT Province are uploaded also here , using the same software, for comparisons reasons.

One of the aims of the project is to develop a model of public-private partnership for the governance of the APW system. Also on the basis of previous projects and other good practices and through the transfer of know-how between RTD performers, Local Authorities and  SME associations, partners prepare guidelines to the correct management of plastic waste, differentiated and addressed to different targets: public authorities, farmers, industry of collection. Besides, they involve other stakeholders to take part to round-tables of institutional coordination, during which public- private partnership joint solutions for an economically and environmentally viable solutions to APW issue are reached, and formalized in Memoranda of Understanding and in strategic plans to address to the higher administrative levels, in a mainstreaming approach.

Both territories involved in the project activities develop feasibility plans for the realization of an experimental station, so to test and fine-tune the model of APW management developed. The Italian side goes as far as the concrete testing of the functionality of the service, observed and participated by the Greek partners.

The findings and optimized processes developed by the partnership are widely transferred to operators through information events. Moreover they are also used as the basis for the creation of conditions and promotion of a new type of economic activity, in the field of the limitedly exploited micro-collection of agricultural waste, through activities of entrepreneurship training and set up of business plans.
