Workshop ‘Reducing Plastic Contamination in Agriculture’

27th November 2019 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm

How to reduce plastics contamination in agriculture

Dispensing of plastics entirely is not a practical solution

While reduction in use of plastics and plastic replacements are possible in many circumstances, plastics still constitute an important set of materials for many applications.

Professor Anthony Furness, Harper Adams University, will be sharing his thoughts on the problems associated with plastics entering the soil, and the solutions, such as recycling the plastic to avoid the material entering landfill and leaching into water courses and into soil, and sequestering carbon from plastics to yield soil-enhancing biochar.

This is an open event, which will be held at Agri-EPI Centre’s Midland’s Agri-Tech Innovation Hub. Tea, coffee and lunch will be provided.
