Dealing with difficult feedstocks

Date: 9th May

Time: 9:30am–1:30pm

Venue: Dunnington & Grimston Sports and Social Club

Address: Common Road, Dunnington, York, YO19 5NG

As the Government further incentivises the use of wastes rather than crops as AD feedstocks, more operators are considering problematic waste streams, such as poultry litter and crop residues. This event will discuss the regulatory and practical pitfalls around using such feedstocks and unveil some new technology solutions that promise to make things easier. The event is followed by an optional networking lunch. You can also join a tour of the Biorenewables Development Centre in Dunnington.
