New website to allow farmers sell agri waste to biogas energy producers

A new website will allow farmers and food producers sell their waste produce to biogas energy producers across Europe. Agrocycle will this week launch a new website – the first of its kind in the world – where farmers and food producers can sell their food-waste and agricultural waste to biogas energy producers and other users across Europe.

Dr Tom Curran, Assistant Professor in Biosystems and Food Engineering at UCD is leading the Agrocycle project. He says there is a huge potential in the Republic of Ireland for more farmers and food producers to use bio-digester machines – and convert their agricultural waste or food waste into heat and electricity.

“This new website will not only provide a source of income and information for farmers and businesses. More importantly, it will facilitate smart and sustainable ways to reduce, reuse and recycle agri-food waste,” said Dr Tom Curran, AgroCycle Project Co-Ordinator and Assistant Professor in Biosystems and Food Engineering at UCD.
