We are running four one-day workshops to help you explore how to turn costly wastes into an income stream for your business.

According to WRAP figures, 1.7 Mt of food waste are generated each year by the UK’s manufacturing companies – some of which is unavoidable, think tomato leaves or egg shells. While 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 waste 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:
    • Help companies compare and decide between different value from waste options
    • 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

What you will take away:

  • Understanding of possible routes to derive value from your wastes and by-products
  • The analysis tool, and how to use it
  • Knowledge of support and funding available
  • An action plan for moving forwards
