To Birmingham this morning to meet with Aston University’s European Bioenergy Research Institute. In a world where landfills are being phased out and Extended Producer Responsibility is increasingly the norm, finding new ways to manage waste is key.
For us, we have developed a plastic-free nappy which allows us to dispose of the product in regenerative ways. We can compost them as well as use Anaerobic and Aerobic Digestion. These latter processes create bio-energy that can be sold back to the grid as power or gas. It is perfectly Circular in nature and a stark contrast from the current Take – Make – Waste system.
As an aside, today’s edition of the London heatwave is causing delays all over the rail network and the citizenry is bewildered by the high temps with no end in sight. I’ll be missing this heat when I head home tomorrow night.
