Event description

Description

A one-day workshop to explore how to turn your wastes into an income stream

According to WRAP 1.7 Mt of food waste are generated each year by the UK’s manufacturing companies. While manufacturing by-products are often considered a waste, they could generate income, rather than disposal costs.

Join our experts to discover how your wastes and by-products could be put to good use

  • Access to one-to-one expertise
  • Learn how to use WRAPs “Value from Waste and By-Products” designed to:
    • Help compare different value-from-waste options
    • Provide a structured process for building a business case for each option
  • Meet key regional funders and find out how they may be able to benefit your business
  • Network with other businesses

What will you take away?

  • Understanding of potential to derive value from wastes
  • WRAP's waste valorisation tool
  • Knowledge of support and funding available for your business
  • Eligible attendees will also receive a £500 voucher to continue working with our experts


Who should attend?

  • Any business with a waste stream that incurs disposal costs, or generates little or no revenue.
  • The person responsible for any or all of the following:
    o Waste management
    o Sustainability
    o Lean or continuous improvements
    o R&D/technology
    o Facility Managers
