Last Friday morning, Fellows Environmental attended the joint NW & NE CIWM Open Meeting, held at the Textile Centre of Excellence in Huddersfield. The event focussed on the management of food waste, covering a wide range of topics including the collection of waste from communal residencies, the recovery options available for food waste and creating clean fuel from used cooking oil (UCO). Most interestingly, Neil Gemmel led a discussion centred on the practical experiences he has gained from running an on-farm AD facility at Clayton Hall Farm.
Seeing as the event was held at the Textile Centre of Excellence, a representative of the University of Huddersfield finished the event by explaining current research being undertaken by the university to get a better understand of the end-of-life management of textile waste in Africa. The event was well attended and provided a good opportunity to catch up with fellow professionals in the waste industry.
