Senior Consultant Ann Ballinger is to present the findings of Eunomia’s report into the costs and benefits of different options for applying digestate produced by the Anaerobic Digestion of food waste to agricultural land in Wales at a forthcoming conference on Future Options for Food Waste.
Ann will explain the conclusions Eunomia reached regarding the potential for financial cost savings to be achieved through dewatering the digestate under certain circumstances. The use of such techniques can provide financial savings to plant operators provided the digestate liquor is subsequently treated using biological oxidation, if the whole digestate would otherwise need to be transported significant distances, or where the feedstock is diluted down to 10% dry solids during the digestion process.
Ann will be joined by numerous other speakers, including representatives from the University of York, Fareshare, Oakdene Hollins, Ricardo AEA, ReFood, ViTo and Wessex Water. The event will take place at The Leeds Club on the 18-19th of June.
