What is Food Waste?
Unconsumed food makes up the majority of food waste and loss. Food waste is caused by a number of reasons, including manufacturing, distribution, retail, and consumption. We are in the midst of a global food waste catastrophe. In addition to the financial, environmental, and legal implications, incorrect food waste management can be harmful to the environment. Your business is required by law to adhere to particular commercial food waste disposal requirements, and failing to do so could result in a punishment.
The most typically wasted foods are potatoes, bread pieces, and apples, with salad items being thrown away in the majority of cases. Normally, this wasted food ends up in landfills, where it rots and releases methane, which is harmful to the environment and produces greenhouse gases. Global climate change and warming are profoundly impacted as a result of this.

How is Food Waste Recycled?
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 the soil.
