'Using digestate as a renewable fertiliser' provides practical advice for farmers and agronomists on how to maximise the supply of nutrients to crops, and how this can be balanced with standard fertilisers. The video sets out how including digestate in nutrient management plans can increase the potential to grow healthy crops, provides advice on cost management and tips on application timings and techniques.

An illustration of the cost of food waste in the catering sector

This dramatic and witty video graphically demonstrates that food waste is not only bad for the environment but bad for business too. With the price of food particularly high, keeping track of what food is wasted is extremely important. Separating food waste from other waste will allow your business to monitor how much is being generated and give you the chance to do something about it. Once you have reduced as much waste as possible any remaining unavoidable food waste will then be in a state where it can be recycled through anaerobic digestion. This has the added benefit of potentially reducing your waste management costs.
