Why We Need to Reduce Farming’s Carbon Footprintcreative55
As specialists in the processing of food and beverage waste for delivery into anaerobic digestion, organic agricultural fertilisers, and extraction of oils, Bioganix support businesses in the achievement of their eco-friendly aims. However, we’re particularly aware of the need to work with the agricultural community in order to achieve the goal of making the UK carbon neutral by 2040.
There has to be a combined effort to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, involving the reduced use of pesticides and fertilisers, minimisation of agricultural pollution, and maintenance of soil quality.
The Need for Change
Agricultural issues have become more and more obvious as a result of major international events such as Covid and the war on Ukraine. These events have highlighted the dependence on increasingly expensive imports such as fuel and fertiliser, with associated impacts including increased climate change and environmental damage. There’s a clear need for the major change of agricultural processes, including farming and food waste management.
The adoption of such environmentally-friendly measures has the potential to increase food production, with better crop yields and nutritional quality. This will mean that the expanding population can be catered for, with the harmful environmental impacts being minimised. There will be a reduced risk of productivity losses and failed harvests as the rate of global warming is slowed.
Supporting the Farming Community
Farmers have a vital role in the prevention of climate change. This can be achieved through the capture of carbon for increased production of food, fibre and fuel. Bioganix offer a range of services, which can help in realising such aims.
We are able to accept waste in different formats, with a well-equipped plant for decanting and processing. We keep our processes as green as possible, doing everything that we can to minimise the amount of waste to landfill.
Our operational processes allow for the creation of biomass material, ideal for supply to Anaerobic Digestion (AD) and generation of renewable energy. This biomass, or ‘feedstock’, also supports in the production of methane-rich biogas, with the digestate end-product being suitable for use as an environmentally-friendly fertiliser.
Our other eco-friendly services include:
- Securely disposing/destroying food and beverage products deemed to be unsuitable for re-entry to the market
- Extracting oils and fats from organic waste streams (with solids being separated for anaerobic digestion and liquids for bio-diesel)
- Supplying additional feedstock to independent AD plants
- Managing transportation in a most efficient and economical way
