£10m boost for food waste facilities

The recent budget announcement of an additional £10 million funding for the development of reprocessing facilities for food waste has been welcomed by WRAP (Waste & Resources Action Programme).

The funding will, it says, enable new composting and anaerobic digestion facilities to be built – processing over 300,000 additional tonnes of food waste every year.
“It builds on our existing programmes which have been operating for over five years and will divert more waste from landfill, create more renewable energy and produce more useful agricultural products, says WRAP CEO Liz Goodwin.“It will also help to stimulate a greener economy by creating skilled jobs in construction, collection and reprocessing.
