Lords investigate pipeline of biowaste R&D

The House of Lords science and technology committee is holding a pair of evidence sessions this week on the state of UK technology for disposing of bio-waste and transforming waste into other products.

Both sessions are scheduled for the morning of 19 November. In the first, the committee will hear from three representatives from industry. The committee’s questions will cover the use of anaerobic digesters to break down biowaste, including the advantages, economic viability, and existing R&D in this area.

In the second, peers will hear from two academics and two industry representatives on how waste could be turned into products with greater value. The committee will ask about what research is the UK doing and how it compares with other countries, how progress can be accelerated and what related technologies are expected to emerge.
