Together with the Dundee and Angus College, the SEPARATE partners are inviting regional stakeholders to a workshop on "Tapping the greenhouse gas emissions reduction potential of the waste sector through anaerobic digestion: technical challenges and solutions". The event offers discussions of Scotland’s waste strategy and its potential for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, and the important role of organic waste. Experiences and data from separate kerbsite collection of organics in some UK cities show that in spite of major awareness raising campaigns in support of correct separation at household level there are still large amounts of organic waste that end up in the rest waste streams. SEPARATE partners will highlight what role technology can play to remove this organic stream from mixed rest waste in view of avoiding landfilling or incineration of it. The partners will also discuss different pre-treament methods for organic and green waste streams before AD in view of ensuring maximum gas yield and continuous digester performance.
The half-day event is free of charge and takes place at Dundee and Angus College's Kingsway Campus. For registration and further details please contact Lol Scragg.
