Food Waste Mapping Project for Yorkshire and the Humber
BioVale’s Special Interest Groups are working with the University of York, the Biorenewables Development Centre (BDC) and sustainability consultants, Anthesis, to analyse opportunities for adding value to food waste in Yorkshire and the Humber.
The project will use data from publicly available and paid-for databases to map the region’s food manufacturing waste streams. For selected sectors, the nature and scale of the biowastes that are being generated and the typical routes of disposal will be assessed. An open innovation event will then be held, aimed at developing research collaborations and potential projects around creating value from the region’s biowastes.
