New agri-waste trading website established

A team of international researchers and businesses have developed a new, free, agri-waste trading website called ‘Agrocycle Marketplace’.

The group partners from University College Dublin, NUI Maynooth and Manor Farm Chickens in Cavan.

The online waste trading platform allows agri-waste producers such as farmers or food firms to ‘match’ trade and sell their agri-waste with users across Europe.

It’s expected the new website will facilitate smart and sustainable ways to reduce, reuse and recycle agri-food waste.

Dr. Tom Curran is AgroCycle Project Co-Ordinator and Assistant Professor in Biosystems and Food Engineering at UCD.
