Plant Food Waste Valorisation –Opportunities and Challenges
September 11 - September 12
Hybrid Event hosted at the Newlyn Building, University of Leeds
Globally around a third of total food produced is lost or wasted along the agri-food chain, with consequent high impact to environment, society and economy. In particular, the fruit and vegetable production and processing contributes significantly to agri-food waste generation. This waste is a huge resource for bulk usage as well as specific ingredients including protein, fibre, phytochemicals and others, with many innovative solutions available or being developed. This two-day event conference will provide an overview on current state of the art in the agrifood waste valorization field, trends, opportunities and challenges.
>Valorization concepts & feasibility
> Targeting sources and ingredients
> Innovations into material design
> Trends in food, feed and nutraceutical applications
It’s appropriate for the event to be organised at the University of Leeds as Yorkshire and the Humber are the UK’s biggest food producing region.
The event begins at lunchtime on Monday September 11th and end in the afternoon of Tuesday 12th. We include an evening poster session, drinks reception and hot buffet on the evening of September 11th. Accommodation is not included but there are lots of options available in Leeds.
We invite submission of abstracts from anyone involved in process of food waste valorization to provide either an oral or poster presentation at this event. We especially hope to link academic researchers with industry practitioners that are using innovative technologies in the valorization of food waste..
We will assembly the meeting sessions, oral and poster presentations from submissions received from both in-person and online delegates. Abstracts should be submitted by July 14th 2023. We hope to announce the meeting schedule with oral and poster presentations by the end of July 2023.
REGISTRATION OPENS ON MAY 1ST 2023
