The Highly Qualified Personnel (HQP) Scholarship program supports the development of highly skilled graduates at the University of Guelph who become future researchers, policy-makers, business leaders and innovators to meet the changing demands of the agri-food and rural sector. Peter Zytner, a BDDC graduate student, was announced as one of the 2021/22 HQP Scholars. He quoted, "One of the biggest things that drew me towards pursuing an engineering degree for my undergrad was the idea of using that knowledge to solve some of the world’s problems. As I worked my way through my degree, I noticed how serious the global plastic waste crisis has become and decided that would be a good problem to try to tackle!". Peter's research focuses on the development and design of biodegradable packaging for food applications, as well as the synthesis of compostable plastic from agricultural waste within a bioreactor. The goal of this work is to utilize waste streams from various agricultural sectors to maximize their value within the circular economy and reduce the environmental impact of single-use plastics by providing a sustainable option to fossil-fuel based plastic.Read more about the HQP scholar here.   ...

The development of sustainable waste management strategies has become a major concern throughout the world. Thus, this program focuses on “recycling” and “recovery” of waste material while paving the way towards circular economy, land reclamation, and water and wastewater treatments.    This program will offer a timely opportunity for knowledge exchange among professionals from all over the world to assist the formulation of an efficient sustainable management agenda for biological waste and remediation of soil, water and air in the local context, which satisfies the environmental compatibility, financial feasibility and social needs. It will deliberate on state-of-the-art treatment technologies, advanced management strategies, and political issues pertaining to recycling and recovery of organic waste.Moreover, local and overseas experts from different sectors including academic researchers, industrial practitioners, green groups, and government departments will be gathered in this program to solicit scientific and technical inputs as well as political feedback, facilitating the development of integrated solutions. Experienced industrial practitioners, professional organizations, green groups, as well as government officers are invited to the conference.Occurring on October 26-28, 2021.
