Event Summary

Bio-waste is both an unnecessary costly problem and a missed opportunity. It uses resources in its disposal and represents unrealised value. Expert opinion believes that in 90% of cases, bio-waste should be upgraded in some sort of industrial process, unless the waste is immediately useful as a fertilizer and soil improving agent.

Event Description

2nd July 2018
Conference: 9:30am–4pm
Drinks reception: 4pm–6pm

All major corporations are struggling with the need to innovate within their supply chains, both in response to heat of international competition and the growth in regulation driven by government (and consumer) interest in reducing waste and related environmental impact.

This event will look at supply chain innovation, with a focus on waste reduction, and take the view that it is only when technological innovation is married to supply chain innovation that significant progress becomes possible.

We shall look at waste in general as well as focus on bio-waste as a means to explore the sorts of approaches to supply chain innovation that can drive companies forward over the next decade.

Bio-waste is both an unnecessary costly problem and a missed opportunity. It uses resources in its disposal and represents unrealised value. Expert opinion believes that in 90% of cases, bio-waste should be upgraded in some sort of industrial process, unless the waste is immediately useful as a fertilizer and soil-improving agent.

To explore this we have planned a full day of thought-provoking material presented at the headquarters of our event partner, Oracle.
