Field Waste Valorisation - the next steps?

12-13 November, Hilton Nottingham

This free-of-charge meeting brought together academic and industry-based FoodWasteNet members with an interest in valorising unavoidable wastes from food crops.

The event put current food waste valorisation research into a much broader context. Invited speakers gave an overview of economic, ethical, social and environmental factors that have an impact on the decision to valorise food wastes. Academic researchers shared their findings from their FoodWasteNet BIV and PoC funded field waste valorisation projects from 2017/18. As the FoodWasteNet NIBB approaches the project end, industry-based FoodWasteNet members refelcted on how involvement with the network has impacted on their collaborations with academic partners. 

We are delighted to announce that Yujie Mao from University of Nottingham won the prize for best poster presentation at the meeting. Congratulations Yujie.
