Donít  Forget Look on the CALENDAR and in our NEWS for our events, those of the other NIBBs and any other happenings that we think might interest you.


Valorisation of Animal By-products - Challenges and Opportunities A Joint AD Network/FoodWasteNet Event Centre Parcs, Longleat - 7 Mar 18 - 10.00 to 16.30 This event is FREE to attend and is open to AD and FoodWasteNet members. This event will examine current and emerging technologies for the valorisation of animal by-products (ABP) and co-products. The programme will include case study presentations from academia, industry, and governmental organisations working in this area and aims to identify the key challenges (e.g. technology, safety, regulation) and opportunities for the valorisation of these types of biomaterials. The programme will focus on following three inter-related themes: Valorisation strategies for fisheries/slaughterhouse/egg by-products and co-products The role of anaerobic digestion within potential valorisation strategies Added value products with good potential for commercialisation For interested participants, a tour has been arranged at the end of the event to Malaby Biogas, which handles ABP materials and produces bioenergy. Registration can be done here. Further information and agenda to be published soon.   The Role of Trace Elements in the Anaerobic Digestion Process Priory Rooms, Birmingham B4 6AF This event is FREE to attend and is open to AD Network members. Trace elements are a critical part of the AD process, yet there are still gaps in our understanding of their transport, bioavailability, interaction with microbial consortia and their effect on the environment. This event aims to bring together academics and practitioners who have an interest in this field. If you are running an anaerobic digester, knowledge of trace elements is critical to ensuring an efficient and stable process. Register here. Further information and agenda to come.
