There will be a decision on the implementation of recycling schemes for homes and industry.

A panel chaired by Lord O’Neill of Clackmannan, House of Lords Science and Technology Committee, will discuss the role nanotechnology and active packaging can play in reducing waste from food and packaging.

Tristram Stuart, commentator and author of “Waste: Uncovering the global food scandal” will discuss how anaerobic digestion compares from a recycling perspective to using food waste to feed livestock.
