i love food. who doesn't? and like everything else in our lives, food has become globalised. we have access to a multitude of cuisines. out of season, a thing of the past. this is bbc news. the headlines: but the true cost of this indulgence russia's arctic north and far east are being ravaged by huge wildfires, with up to four million hectares is becoming apparent ablaze, and vast areas with a spiralling public health engulfed by smoke. crisis and environmental fires are common at this time destruction. of year, but record—breaking summer temperatures and strong winds have made this year particularly bad. i've been to a facility in north london where our discarded us president donald trump has food ends up. in this country, household waste said his choice for the new director makes up for at least 70% of national security, of what is thrown away. john ratcliffe, has withdrawn from consideration — just five days after he was nominated for the role. currently only half the uk's food critics said that mr ratcliffe lacked the expertise and experience waste is being processed. to take on the role. if it all came to a place like this it could power 350,000 households. this place receives crowds in puerto rico are celebrating the formal about 30 lorries a day. resignation of the island's full of waste, mostly governor, ricardo rossello. he agreed to stand down as governor coming from homes. in the face of mass protests over this whole operation is powered vulgar text messages he shared with his advisers. by the waste that comes in here. he will be replaced and, surprisingly, there is actually only one machine.
that's because what arrives here is just food waste by pedro pierluisi. in plastic bags. so all that needs to happen is the plastic be separated the governor of the bank of england, from the food. but that shows just how important mark carney, has warned it is that we do our bit that many businesses could quickly find they are not viable, at home first. if the uk leaves the eu without after the food is removed a deal at the end of october. from the bags, a kind he also told the bbc that food of soup is created. and fuel prices could rise, and incomes could also be hit. andy verity reports. it isn't your usual halloween nightmare, but the fear is that come it even has its own recipe to make october 31 a no—deal brexit itjust right for the next bit could lead to a slowdown in imports entering the country. of the process. these tanks behind me are actually called the digesters and they work this time it could also like the human digestive system, hit firms hard, making breaking down food injust many of them unprofitable. the same way. mark carney says he's not in fact, the temperature playing up the scare. inside there is 37 degrees — with no—deal brexit the shock the same temperature as the human gut. once the food is broken down, the gas produced is turned to the economy is instantaneous into electricity and the rest is sent as manure to the surrounding farms. and that instantly you have the supply — but there is no denying that notjust disruptions — aside from the waste, i'm not talking aboutjust we need to be creating more the issues at the ports,
food to be able to feed the world's growing population. which are real, but you actually and to be able to do that, have businesses that no we need to find ways of creating longer are economic. sustainable and efficient farming. so we took a trip to the well—known risk means a shift the orkney islands off the coast to the world trade organisation of scotland to see how 56 regime means higher tariffs added to imported or exported goods. is being used to do just that. but what mark carney is saying sg networks are starting is that they could also be to pop up in uk cities. inflationary in other ways. but for many rural areas, mark carney has highlighted two even getting a basic signal things that could happen in a no—deal brexit, remains a challenge. one is that the pound gets weaker, so your pound buys you fewer dollars including in the orkney islands off or euros to buy imported goods with, the north coast of scotland, so those prices go up. with a population of just 22,000 people. the other thing that could happen is that the supply of goods from abroad in the past, an argument going through our ports and airports against setting up mobile networks slows down, and that you could put in remote locations was the high up slows down, and that you could put cost of infrastructure, relative to low population. up prices. but this could all be about to change. in a revolutionary move, the uk's communications regulator, it may take a while to get ofcom, is opening up to borisjohnson‘s vision of a sunlit uplands after no—deal part of the airwaves, brexit, mr carney says, because the week about expected or spectrum, to anyone who wants to use it. on the markets could hit purses at cost price on a first—come and wallets at petrol stations, forecourts, and grocery stores. first—served basis. most businesses are now as prepared as they can be. mobile operators want to provide mr carney‘s view isn't the only one. service right across the country.
i think it's important to note some places don't use there are different types all the spectrum, sometimes it might of no deals. be available for others to use. we are hoping innovations will come out of it and new industries will develop. and mark carney seems to be talking about the worst possible type which i think isn't going to happen because some businesses have industries will not be done some preparations. constrained by bits of wire, and will be able to use radio. experiments to build local networks are already under way. the 56 rural first trial has brought sg capabilities to different projects across the orkney islands. there is no sign yet that the bank one of the most remote of england is ready to do that. and under—connected parts of the uk. but while remote, the islands no need to really scare people. contribute significantly to uk it's not halloween yet. exports of salmon and whiskey. andy verity, bbc news. now in a few minutes it'll be time for the film review. 00:03:36,648 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 but first — click. salmon is one of the uk's biggest food exports, worth more than £700 million a year. many salmon farms are located offshore in scottish waters. with up to 25,000 fish in each cage, there is a lot of data that needs to be collected. this box monitors sensors in the water that include temperature sensors, salinity sensors and oxygen sensors, so it is seeing how oxygen is going to the fish. the oxygen levels affect when and how much the fish are fed.
automatic feeding systems work off that data on a wi—fi network over a 56 connection, with four feeders running at once. just did that feed off your laptop? yes. i am connected to the barge computer via screen connect which is a total benefit to us because we can be out on site and ready to feed the fish rather than have a man just sitting and feeding them all day. he can be out working with us and helping us. and some processes are still done by hand, like checking for sea lice. that could change as well. we will be doing health checks on them and make sure they are nice and clean. that one is beautiful. so if you had a 56 connection you may not need to do this, where you remove the fish from the water? no. we would have hd cameras that could monitor the condition. 56 brings a couple of elements that maybe we didn't have with 46. of course it has higher bandwidth.
but it also brings low latency, meaning that the time the signal takes to go back and forth becomes much much faster. we can deploy it in areas that we may not have been able to before. it is all now coming together into a single infrastructure, providing solutions that maybe over ag was only a dream. while only 22,000 people live in orkney, a further 200,000 tourists come to visit its whiskey distilleries and famous neolithic sites every year. many arrive by cruise ship including this disney one, dropping off hundreds of passengers. by selling access to bespoke wi—fi networks over 56, the local community could pay for the masts needed to get network access all year round. so we are standing in the middle of the ring of brodgar and you can see two masts from here. if you look over here, there are two masts up there. we are running from that right now. fantastic. can we see? so...
that's us connected now. that is the full signal. number 15 is queueing up. signal strength is impressive. other applications like augmented reality tour guides are being tested, which tourists can also buy while visiting. is it possible to see you have a signal or a connection to your network here? no, ijust have emergency calls. i have no ag, no 3g. this is a 5g connection. oh, wow! is this something you would want to use? yes. especially if you have children as well. i think it's a good idea. for important sites at this, yes. the 5g network is also being tested on windfarms. the orkney islands produce over i30% of its electricity demand through renewable energy, selling the excess back to the national grid. with sustained winds over 100 mph during the winter and farms in remote locations, having sensors delivering data in real—time to a central point can help keep the turbines running in dangerous conditions.
these turbines are now connected to a smart grid which mixes renewable energy with battery technology. before, they were connected by copper wire to telephone lines, making them vulnerable to damage from lightning strike. we're hoping that the 5g system will minimise the amount of outages that the project can have. you can imagine that if we were connected by a simple wire, that can fail and that will stop generation. and we do not want that. we want to be able to provide power whenever it is windy and send it to scotland where it can be used. all these projects are still in the pilot stage. but with ofcom opening up the airwaves, they could soon become reality. in some places like orkney where spectrum is not intensively used, we want people to be able to use spectrum as a way of deploying new services, be it in rural areas where people are doing new and innovative things or inside factories or enterprise offices as we go toward more industrial it and new 5g services we just want people to be able to do it and do it.
ofcom will assess each bid for parts of shared spectrum by ofcom ensure there is no interference with other users. it will start taking bids for these shared case uses towards the end of the year. so we have seen how new ways of farming and even creating food in a lab can solve one problem — but we still need to be wasting less at home. so i have been taking a look at some technology that aims to help. these smart tags and containers are still in preproduction. they are designed to ping you reminders about your leftovers. as for your supermarket shopping, you can track that using apps like kitche or nowaste, which alert you food that is about to go off, and keep track of how much your wastage is causing you. snapping a picture of your receipt
creates a digital pantry. kitche did seem better at deciphering the text than nowaste. kitche also suggests recipes for cooking soon to expire food, although you would need to add more ingredients as well. the result made this seem a bit of a novelty to me. we've seen a few smart fridges that let you take a peek inside remotely, but those will set you back thousands. fridgecam is trying to give the same convenience for a couple of hundred quid. the idea is that it will snap a picture every time you close your fridge door, so you can see what is inside from anyway. it also uses image recognition to keep an eye on the product — that is the aim anyway. in reality, in this type of fridge at least, the camera viewjust wasn't wide enough to show more
than one or two shelves. as for those snaps, it will tell you who has been opening the fridge. these apps may encourage us to think about how we treat food a bit more, but changing our lifetime shopping and eating habits might be a harder nut to crack. that's it for the short version of oui’ that's it for the short version of our sustainable food disposal. the full programme can be found on the bbc iplayer. throughout the week you can keep track of the de—mined and sran, youtube, facebook, and twitter @bbcclick. and of course will be back next week. ——of the team on instagram. thanks for watching.
