Flexible Funding Webinar Series focuses priorities on anaerobic digestion

The second session in our Flexible Funding Webinar Series took place on 23 Sep 2020 between 10:00-12:00 BST and explored priorities for a call around anaerobic digestion.

The webinar included presentations from speakers across industry and academia that covered topics such as energy from waste, anaerobic processes and the circular economy. The webinar was held in support of our call for proposals for two Flexible Funding Projects worth £100,000 launching at the start of October.
