Valorisation is the process of adding value to wastes and by-products, converting them into useful products, including chemicals, materials, and fuels. This approach is attracting renewed interest in the food sector due to the fast depletion of natural and primary resources, and the need for more sustainable and cost-efficient waste management protocols. This presentation explores the scale of the opportunity, examples of businesses already innovating in this space, and how you can get involved.
