Professors to give evidence on bio-waste

A professor of chemistry at the University of York is among witnesses called to the House of Lords inquiry into the state of UK technology for disposing of bio-waste and transforming waste into other products.

James Clark, professor of chemistry and director of York’s Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence, will be joined on the witness panel by Nilay Shah, professor of process systems engineering at Imperial College London, and Ian Tebble, head of science and technology at TMO Renewables, a company that turns bio-waste into ethanol, polymers and bio-plastics.

At the hearing, which will take place on 26 November, witnesses will be asked about technologies, the economics of reusing waste and the products they expect to reach the market in the near future.
