A meeting on food waste recycling for local councils, investors, anaerobic digestion plant operators and stakeholders

Free-to-attend side-event at the World Biogas Expo


13:00 to 14:30 BST
Wednesday, 15th June
Venue: NEC Birmingham

Over 300 councils in the UK have declared a Climate Emergency. Starting to collect their food waste to both reduce and recycle it will be a key step in the pathway to carbon neutrality. The first day of the Expo will feature a dedicated lunch for local authorities (LAs) bringing them together with investors, AD plant operators and all relevant stakeholders in order to discuss barriers and solutions for implementing separate food waste collections. The lunch will feature presentations from Defra on its guidelines on segregated collections, Local Authorities Leaders that successfully implemented them, ADBA and others. Join us for this networking lunch!
