CVR - Centro Valorização de Resíduos

The CVR – Centre for Waste Valorisation is a private, nonprofit institution founded in Braga, by deed of 8 July 2002, which provides research, scientific analysis and application of real solutions in the field of waste recovery.

Regardless of the industrial activity, CVR has the necessary know-how to support projects and initiatives, related to the management of a wide variety of industrial waste streams.

Consequently, CVR pretends to contribute to the development of new waste management processes, exploiting not only the energetic potential of wastes, but also its material potential. The associated constituents of CVR are Associação Industrial do Minho, Associação Portuguesa de Fundição, Associação Universidade Empresa para o Desenvolvimento – Tecminho and Universidade do Minho.

Among founding and associate members, CVR sums more than seventy national companies, distributed by several activity areas, particularly from the industrial sector. The CVR has a periodical bulletin that is published every six months, since April of 2003.
