Evaluation of biopolymer liners used for food waste collections destined for Anaerobic Digestion

Closing date: 
6 July, 2012 - 12:00

The aim of this work is twofold:

  • Firstly to find and detail which liners and base biopolymers are promoted as suitable for the collection of food waste intended for treatment in AD. 
  • Secondly we would like to ascertain the amount of ‘compostable’ and ‘non-compostable’ bags being sent to AD facilities by local authorities and commercial operations. 

The conclusion of the work will form part of the evidence base used in the development of WRAP guidance on selecting liners for AD food waste collections.

This work is targeted at organisations with a direct knowledge of biopolymers and the AD processing industry.
