Synopsis

Conference Synopsis

  1. Setting the Scene - What are the facts and where are we now? What is the carbon impacts of UK Agriculture? What are the pressure points? How will things look if we don’t do anything? Can we reach a view of the true carbon footprint of food production – field to plate? What will happen if we do nothing?

  1. Carbon and Corporate Social Responsibility highlighting technology solutions - How can the food manufacture and distribution network work with primary agricultural production to reduce its carbon footprint? What technology can be developed and how can this be harnessed?
  1. The energy independent farm - The Energy Independent Farm is a new approach, where farmers will be able to generate their own energy to run their farm and agricultural equipment. By using wind systems, solar panels or biomass and biogas processes located right on the farm, the farmer can independently obtain electricity and use it to generate hydrogen to power farm machinery and also to supply electricity.
  1. The search for Sustainable Agriculture - The world is waking up to the importance of agriculture and its primary role as a food producer. An increasing world population is nothing new. How we will feed the 8.3 billion people in 2031.
  1. Carbon Capture and CO2 Enrichment technologies - Today's technology meets traditional expertise.  Combined Heat & Power technology which also provides extra CO2 the plants need to grow to their potential. This means that produce doesn't just taste delicious, it has a very low carbon footprint too.
  1. Soil! Our Natural Capital - Professor Jane Rickson, Professor of Soil Erosion and Conservation in the Cranfield Soil and AgriFood Institute, School of Water, Energy and Environment, Cranfield University will cover the importance of soil as a key carbon sink – at global, regional and local scales; how this has changed over space and time; and how we can manage this vital (yet unrenewable) natural resource to both prevent any further loss of carbon, but also increase the storage of soil carbon. ‚Äč
  1. Energy Crops and Carbon Reduction - Dr Ian Shield from Rothamstead Reasearch will discuss the latest research and how that fits with the BBSRC Strategic Programme on "Cropping Carbon".
