Green innovation that replaces chemical fertilisers with compost produced from waste will be explained at a lecture in Swindon next week.
Devizes-based organisation Land Network will explain how it is helping farmers across the UK and beyond use compost made from waste while helping towards reducing the country’s carbon footprint.
Ray Lewington, chairman of The Institution of Engineering and Technology’s Swindon Local Network, which is staging the event next Tuesday, said: “We all have a duty to reduce waste and I am encouraged by current innovative initiatives that reduce our waste burden.
“I hope our future generations can understand the importance of looking after our environment. As such, I would encourage young people from our various secondary schools to come along and learn about reducing the waste burden in the real world.”
The IET is helping to plug the shortage of future engineers and technologists by working with schools to show young people the benefits of STEM careers.
The lecture takes place in the Business Suite at New College between 6.30pm and 8.30pm
