This will be the 5th in a series of international conferences which focus on the sustainable exploitation of agri-food co-products and related biomass, thereby helping to minimise waste.
Under the auspices of the Royal Society of Chemistry (Food Group), this three day event provides an open forum to highlight recent developments and to facilitate knowledge transfer between representatives of the agri-food industries, scientific research community, legal experts on food related legislation and waste management, and consumer organisations.
Themes explored ranged from the adding of value to co-products through to the recovery of energy from waste streams.
Total Food 2017 is organised by staff from the Biorefinery Centre at the Institute of Food Research.
Support is available from FoodWasteNet for members (based at research organisations who are eligible for BBSRC funding) who are interested in attending Total Food 2017 to showcase their projects. Members who are confirmed contributors to this event (as a speaker or poster presentation), will be able to apply by email (including proof of event contribution) for a bursary of up to £150 per day (maximum 3 days). Limited bursaries are available on a first-come-first-served basis.
