ADBA AD & Hospitality Industry Conference

What’s the event about?
At this invite-only conference we are bringing together companies from across the hospitality and waste management industries with anaerobic digestion (AD) operators to look at how we can increase the amount and quality of food waste extracted from the hospitality sector and recycled through AD, with a view to delivering financial and other valuable benefits to all. We want to understand the challenges companies in the hospitality industry face, both in separating out food waste, finding suitable waste collection services and ultimately ensuring it is recycled through AD, the best treatment option for food waste. At the same time, we want to help you find ways to reduce your waste management costs and find more suitable waste collection services. This event is part of ADBA’s campaign to proactively work with the hospitality, food and drink, waste and AD industries to strengthen links, identify issues, agree an action plan, and ultimately to facilitate delivery of any potential solutions identified at the event. Getting this right ensures we all make the most of this valuable resource, and save money.

Why have you been invited?
We are inviting you to give you an opportunity engage with both the waste management and AD industries to explain the issues you experience as a producer of food waste and to help identify solutions that will ultimately save you money.

What are the topics?

  • Appreciating the value of the hospitality industry’s food waste
