What is Food Waste Disposal?
Food waste is one of the most common types of waste in the world. The proliferation of hotels, restaurants, fast-food restaurants, and cafeterias has resulted in massive amounts of food waste. Food waste is becoming more prevalent, necessitating the development of a proper food waste management strategy to ensure its environmentally benign and long-term disposal. Among the various types of organic waste available, food waste holds the greatest potential for economic benefit due to its high carbon content and ability to be converted into organic fertilizer and biogas.
The term “food waste” includes diegstable biological materials generated in hotels, restaurants, canteens, cafeterias, shopping malls and industrial parks, such as leftovers, vegetable refuse, stale cooked and uncooked food, meat, tea bags, napkins, honey, and milk products. Sometimes, the chemical composition of food waste and the fact that sometimes it is collected along with other waste makes it difficult for it to be treated or recycled.
How is Food Waste Disposed of?
Food waste can be disposed of in one of two ways, both of which include recycling:
Composting: A process where naturally occurring microorganisms break down biodegradable waste in an enclosed chamber or pit with oxygen .
Anaerobic digestion: A method of breaking down biodegradable waste in the absence of oxygen to create renewable energy (biogas) that can be used to generate electricity and heat.
Anaerobic Digestion Liverpool
In a number of European and Asian countries, anaerobic digestion has successfully stabilized food wastes and produced valuable end-products. The development of advanced biogas technology and the launch of new food waste conversion projects has been largely driven by Sweden, Austria, Denmark, Germany, and England. By using diverse organic wastes as a renewable energy source, biogas technology is becoming increasingly important. Biogas plants can contribute to self-sufficiency in heat and power demands while reducing pollution. Biogas plants can either use food waste as a single substrate or co-digest it with organic waste such as cow manure, poultry litter, sewage, crop residues and abattoir byproducts.
