Future FoodWasteNet Events

Valorisation of animal by-products - challenges and opportunities
Centre Parcs, Longleat,  7 March 2018, 10.00 to 16.30

This event is jointly organised by FoodWasteNet and ADNet and is free to members of both NIBB. The event will examine current and emerging technologies for the valorisation of animal by-products (ABP) and co-products.

The programme will include case study presentations from academia, industry, and government organisations working in this area and aims to identify the key challenges (e.g. technology, safety, regulation) and opportunities for the valorisation of these types of biomaterials. The programme will focus on following three inter-related themes:

  • Valorisation strategies for fisheries/slaughterhouse/egg by-products and co-products
  • The role of anaerobic digestion within potential valorisation strategies
  • Added value products with good potential for commercialisation

For interested participants, a tour has been arranged at the end of the event to Malaby Biogas, which handles ABP materials and produces bioenergy.

Registration via ADNet . Further information and programme available soon.
