Web180418: Opportunities for utilising food industry waste to reduce energy costs
A webinar presented by Alzbeta Bouskova of BPO Ltd on 18 April 2018 at 2pm (NZ time), 12 noon (AEST), 10am (AWST), 11.30am (ACST)
Food industry waste can be a problem, or an opportunity for reducing processing plant energy costs and carbon footprint. Attendees of this webinar gained an understanding of:
- the potential reduction in methane emissions as a greenhouse gas contributor;
- the opportunities for modifying existing industrial waste water treatment facilities to efficiently produce more biogas;
- the extent of reduction of investment and operating costs achievable;
- the likely economics of this type of initiative and the amount of international carbon credits which would not have to be purchased with no benefit to the NZ economy.
