Innovative waste disposal options
Hospitalfield House, Arbroath, Angus, DD11 2NH
The Scottish Biofuel Programme is happy to host the June meeting of the Interface Food & Drink Fruit Common Interest Group (CIG)
We invite you to our event exploring the opportunity for fruit growers and processors to convert their biological waste or by-products into bioenergy or other valuable commodities, addressing a waste disposal problem whilst producing an additional source of income or off-setting energy costs.
Companies can gain a competitive edge by generating new revenue streams, reducing costs, meeting environmental goals and cost-effectively complying with legislation.
