Where Does Our Food Waste Go?

Update 22 Oct: This event has been postponed due to illness. New date to be confirmed.

Did you know that those little green food waste bins we put out each week provide power for homes and nutrients for plants?

Debra Barnacle of Severn Trent Green Power will explain all at the Rotary Club of Henley-on-Thames’ next public webinar on Tuesday, 26 October at 6:30 pm.

Some of our old banana skins, chicken bones and potato peelings are turned into energy at an anaerobic digestion plant in nearby Wallingford. But in a classic example of the circular economy, the plant also transforms the waste into digestate, a liquid fertiliser that adds oxygen and nutrients to the soil and via that back into plants.

The webinar is free, and part of 1.2 million-member Rotary International’s commitment to supporting the environment.
