Webinar181116: Economic viability of commercial anaerobic digestion of food waste

2pm (NZDT), 16 November 2018
by GoToWebinar link
Around the world, significant quantities of residual food waste is being treated to produce energy and high grade fertiliser.  It uses proven technology and is an integral part of a growing circular economy.

Cities such as Auckland are adopting “Zero organic waste to landfill by 2040” policies and are looking at how to treat the residual waste that can not be recycled and get income that offsets the cost of waste collection and management.
The webinar will be based around information from an operating anaerobic digester facility in Western Australia. The facility takes feedstock from a range of organic waste streams and produces biogas and high grade fertilizer. These underpin the financial viability of the facility.
