Food Waste Valorisation for Sustainable Chemicals, Materials and Fuels (EUBis)

The Future of Food Waste - wrapping up EUBIS Mon, 10th Oct 2016, 6:54pm

On 20th-21st September 2016, food waste valorisation researchers and stakeholders from across Europe gathered in Wageningen to discuss the important future of food supply chain waste valorisation. Presentations from a large number of EUBIS participants were complemented by keynotes with topics ranging from business success stories, perspectives on consumer behaviour and funding opportunities for research in the area.

Sixty-four attendees were treated to a fantastic range of talks - external contributors provided a great counter-point to the more research-focused talks from EUBIS members by providing real-world context for food waste valorisation. There was also some great in-depth discussions around the future of the network as the COST funding for EUBIS comes to an end on 22nd November.

Along with the orals, 22 posters were presented by attendees at lunches and coffee breaks throughout the two days, and iBET's Liliana Rodriguez won the poster prize for her poster entitled “Recovery of bioactive ingredients from cruciferous vegetables surpluses using supercritical fluid technology“.

Attendees also enjoyed a conference dinner at the Hotel de Wageningsche Berg, the conference host, and many members then moved over to Wageningen University and Research's Food and Biobased Research facility on the following day for the final EUBIS Management Committee meeting. EUBIS would like to thank Carmen Boeriu and her dedicated team at WUR for organising an engaging, professional conference that provided a fitting finale for EUBIS's activities.
