Profit from your Waste: Introducing WRAP's New Valorisation Tool
According to WRAP figures, 1.7 Mt of food waste is generated each year by the UK’s manufacturing companies. However, whilst these types of manufacturing by-products are often considered a waste, they could generate income, rather than disposal costs. New technologies are now providing interesting alternatives, such as: converting bread waste into pharmaceuticals, potato starch into batteries or household waste into high value chemicals.
Join BDC specialists to discover how your wastes and by-products could be put to good use. Working in a close group of no more than five companies this intensive, practical workshop will provide an opportunity for you to:
- Explore how to derive value from your bio-based wastes and by-products with help from BDC experts
- Consider different options for converting waste to products, and compare the potential revenue and reduced costs associated with those options
- Learn how to use the “Value from Waste and By-Products” analysis tool, for developing ideas into commercial propositions; designed to:
o Help companies compare and decide between different value from waste options
o Provide a structured process for building a business case by evaluating the technical,
commercial and business parameters for each option
- Find out about additional support and funding available and plan your next steps to make feasible ideas happen
This event is aimed at companies with a bio-based waste stream that incurs disposal costs, or generates little or no revenue or the person/people responsible for any or all of the following: waste management, sustainability, lean or continuous improvements and R&D/technology or facility managers.
So, please do come along to our workshop to explore ways of turning costly waste into a valuable income stream for your business.
