THE REGION OF BRUSSEL-CAPITAL

WITH THE SMART CITY PROJECT

In response to the Covid-19 health crisis, the City of Brussels has launched a call for Smart City projects aimed at economic recovery in the City's territory. PuriFungi has been selected - among 8 other innovative projects - with its project called “Collecte Collective”, a digital platform for the creation of new economic sectors through the recovery of waste (such as cigarette butts, coffee ground waste, sanitary waste and much more !).

THE WALLOON REGION

WITH THE DEMO INTERREG PRICE

During Dour Festival 2019, PuriFungi was one of the two winners of the european price DEMO - Interreg France - Wallonie - Vlaanderen “Sustainability and Ecology in the Music Industry and its Operators” with its idea of creating ashtrays with cigarette butts and mushrooms, raising environmental awareness during events in a creative and interactive way.
