The process by which food waste is managed is known as food waste management. This includes the procedures we use for collection, recycling, and disposal. The impact of agriculture on climate change and other environmental issues is mostly due to food waste and loss. Food production is resource-intensive, therefore squandering or losing food is a waste of resources with serious environmental effects. Reduced food loss and waste will enhance resource use efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions per unit of food consumed since more food reaches the consumer for a given amount of resources used.
How is Food Waste Recycled?
Food production and consumption, as well as the waste generated as a result, are currently the major environmental problems. While more than 700 million people go hungry every day, we waste one-third of all food produced, as well as the natural resources utilized in its creation. Despite the fact that we all need food, our existing farming methods and waste disposal practices place an unsustainable strain on the ecosystem. We prioritize the environment at Basildon Waste, and our operations are more focused on conserving resources and energy, which we accomplish through recycling.
There are two techniques to recycle food waste:
In-vessel composting requires mixing food waste with garden waste, shredding it, and then composting it for 2-4 weeks in an enclosed system (temperatures as high as 70°C speed up the process and ensure that any harmful bacteria are destroyed). Before being used as a soil conditioner, the material is allowed to develop for another 1-3 months outside, with regular turning and quality inspections.
Anaerobic digestion uses microorganisms to break down food waste, animal manure, slurries, and energy crops in the absence of oxygen in an enclosed environment. Methane is emitted when it decomposes, which is collected and converted into biogas, which can then be used to generate electricity, heat, or transportation fuels. It also creates a nutrient-dense digestate that can be used as a fertilizer or to regenerate soil.
Potatoes, bread pieces, and apples are the most commonly thrown away foods, with salad items being thrown away in the majority of cases. Normally, this waste food ends up in landfills, where it rots and releases methane, a greenhouse gas that is hazardous to the environment. This has a significant impact on global climate change and warming.
