  • Re-thinking the way we deal with Waste – resources not waste
  • Heat target is very difficult to realise – expensive and difficultExpect a new push on this in 2013

Whisky study tour   21 may13 am Whisky study tour 21 may13 am Presentation Transcript

  • Speyside Distillery Seminar – 21st May 2013Industrial ADAlison McKinnieProject manager, Organics
  • Contents• Zero Waste Plan & Waste (Scotland) Regulations• Renewables policy in Scotland• Handling by-products from food and drink sector & ResourceEfficient Scotland• Feedstocks in, digestate out and PAS110 accreditation• SEPA / Planning approval process• Support for industrial AD in Scotland• Innovation
  • Zero Waste Plan – key elements• Issued – 9th June 2010• Sets out key actions & targets to tackle the 20M t/ywaste produced by Scotland:– 70% recycling by 2025– Carbon metric– Mandatory separate collections– Landfill bans– EFW input controls– Managing Scotland’s resources forScotland’s economic &environmental benefit
  • Zero Waste Plan – re-thinkingwaste• Resource efficiency underpins strategy:– Reducing waste arisings– Ensuring waste produced is recycled into qualityproducts– Using recycled products to reduce the carbon-impact of the supply chain e.g. using recycledproducts (compost/digestate) to grow food• Closing the loop….
  • Waste (Scotland) RegulationsKey points as follows:• All businesses and organisations to present key recyclablematerial for collection from 1 January 2014• Food waste businesses producing over 50kg of food waste perweek to present it for separate collection from 1 January 2014• Food waste businesses producing over 5kg of food waste perweek to present it for separate collection from 1 January 2016• A ban on the use of macerators to discharge food waste into thepublic sewer from 1 January 2016• A ban on municipal biodegradable waste going to landfill by 1January 2021
  • • Climate Change Act – emissions reductions target of 42%by 2020 & decarbonisation of electricity supply by 2030, anddecarbonised heat by 2050– 2020 Routemap for Renewable Energy inScotlandRenewables policy in Scotland
  • 2020 Routemap for Renewable Energy inScotland• Updates the Renewables Action Plan 2009• New, more challenging targets• 100% of electricity demand from renewables• 11% of heat demand from renewables• 10% transport• Alongside 12% energy reduction target
  • Handling by-products from foodand drink sector• Food Waste materialso Household - 566,000 tonneso Hospitality Sector - 67,728 tonneso Public Sector – 14,000 tonneso Industrial food Waste – 1,590,000 tonnes• Currently 470,000 tonnes of the above is still sent to landfill• Most is suitable for AD
  • Resource Efficient Scotland:Food & Drink“To support business, the public and third sector toimplement actions that reduce their materialconsumption and waste production, and increasesenergy and water efficiency to benefit theireconomic performance”
  • Resource Efficient Scotland: Food &Drink• Food & Drink is a priority sector for Resource Efficient Scotland• Food & Drink’s importance to the Scottish economy and theresources it uses• This includes:- Agriculture- Food & Drink Manufacturers/Processors- Grocery Retailers- Wholesalers- Pubs & Clubs
  • Resource Efficient Scotland (RES):Food & Drink• Type of support:- Focus on implementation (saving money and reducing energy, materialand/or water use)- Advice & Support Service, potential for 1-1 support- Case studies, tools and best practice guidance- For innovative projects or tackling issues that affect an entire sub-sector then bespoke projects can be developed• Includes industry voluntary agreements such as Courtauld Commitment 3,Hospitality and Food Service Voluntary Agreement or Federation HouseCommitment.
  • Industrial AD Input materials• Food Waste materialso Industrial food Waste – 1,590,000 tonnes• Most of this material will be suitable for AD including most food /drink processing effluents• Potentially reducing waste water / SEPA charges
  • Output - Digestate as a product• Very liquid, typically only around 3 - 14% fibre content• Valuable resource• Cheaper than synthetic fertilisers• Replacement or partial replacement for mineral fertilisers• Contain useful quantities of P, K, Mg, S and trace elements.• Liquor is an excellent source of readily available N• Can offer carbon savings and long-term soil benefits whencompared with synthetic fertilisers• What goes in comes out!• Excellent opportunity to ‘close the loop’ with suppliers
  • Current marketsMarkets are still in their infancy, but work is being carried out byZWS to help develop good, stable, long term markets for thisproduct, currently they are• Agriculture – the biggest market and the most likely market• Landscape and regeneration• HorticultureIt is most likely that markets will require / demand PAS110 qualitydigestate
  • • Source-segregated biodegradable inputs• De-packaging allowed• HACCP, Quality Management System• Pasteurisation / sanitization steps• End product testing• Product quality driven by inputs• Must comply with SEPA requirements• Guaranteed market• No additional processing neededThe product route: PAS110
  • The waste route• No need for PAS110• Not a product so classed as a ‘waste’• Exemption needed from SEPA• Unlikely to be allowed under farm certification schemes• Land for waste disposal needs to be secured
  • SEPA• PPC licence for AD plants >100 tonnes per day• WML for AD plants <100 tonnes/day• WML + exemption for AD plants taking distillery wastes, agriculturalwastes or a mix of both <100 tonnes/day• PPC for any AD plant with >10 tonnes/day of animal waste (likely toinclude catering wastes, not manures and slurries)• All on site AD plants or ‘Hub’ plants
  • Planning• Most sites – ‘general industrial use’ Planning shouldn’t be a problem• ‘Hub’ sites may be different
  • Support for Industrial AD in Scotland Up to £10,000 for feasibility study into industrial on site AD(must be match funded and not exceeding 50%).To be eligible to apply for funding your applicant must:• be a food and / or drinks producer / hospital based in Scotland;• the site must be located in Scotland;• have the feasibility study completed by 31st March 2015;• demonstrate that on-site AD would improve resource efficiencye.g. through reducing waste disposal and costs, providing onsite renewable energy;• provide information (non-commercially sensitive) on thedevelopment and performance of the project for potential usein case studies.
  • Innovation• Driving Innovation in AD• ZWS Innovation funds• Keen to develop Scottish inter industry & Academiccollaboration for the development & benefit of AD
