      Transforming Your Food Waste For The Benefit Of The Environment

      Jason Hoen of Green Eco Technologies (GET), will describe challenges facing the Environment due to high volumes of food waste, and legislative changes being introduced to ensure adoption of responsible waste management systems. Among the solutions available, Jason will describe the WasteMaster system developed by GET for a wide range of industry sectors, which converts food waste on-site into much smaller volumes of residual material, re-purposing waste for positive re-use.

      Reducing Environmental Impact of Food Processing - Bio-energy and Water Reuse

      Water use and energy consumption are key issues for the food processing sector. While food and drink manufacturers must satisfy customer and other stakeholder pressure on carbon emissions, they also need to manage water resources more effectively. On-site bio-energy can facilitate grey water re-use and, using case study examples, I will show how more effective effluent management will enable manufacturers to access the latent energy content in their liquid bio-residues.

      Valorisation: Getting Value from Hard-To-Avoid Food Waste

      Valorisation is the process of adding value to wastes and by-products by converting them into useful products; including chemicals, materials, and fuels. This approach is attracting renewed interest in the food sector due to the fast depletion of natural and primary resources, and the need for more sustainable and cost-efficient waste management protocols. This presentation explores the scale of the opportunity, examples of businesses already innovating in this space, and how you can get involved.
