Biorenewable Fuel and Fertiliser: Realising the Potential

Fera, York, UK24 March 2010, 09.30 - 17.15 Organised by SCI’s Science & Enterprise Group, Environment Group, Yorkshire & the Humber Group, Fera, and CIWEM Tyne & Humber Branch
This joint SCI/Fera event is focused on business opportunities around AD. The morning session will open with an overview of the regulatory playing field; inputs, technology and biomethane utilisation; environmental law issues; constraints on the use of biosolids; and the use of existing assets. The afternoon session will open with a review of the risks, then an overview of the sewage sludge phytoconditioning process, followed by opportunities for business, including co-digestion of waste with sewage sludge, the case for recycling plant nutrients, and biogas generation. Two panel discussion sessions will provide time to explore issues raised in the presentations.

Biogas and biosolids from anaerobic digestion (AD) are very topical in view of the Food Waste and Energy imperatives, which will lead to a large increase in AD capacity over the next five years. AD provides a viable solution for Food and Farm Waste, which will not be allowed in landfill after 2015. Biogas from AD is expected to become a significant contributor of renewable heat and power. The water industry is already well along the learning curve, as it now treats about half of all sewage by AD, yet despite this long experience, there are still concerns around use of biosolids (digestate) as fertiliser.

The event will be of interest to anyone who is involved in the management or treatment of food and farm waste, or sewage; or the operation of AD units; the use of biogas and biosolids, as well as those working on optimisation of AD processes, biogas yield, and utilisation of biogas and biosolids.
