Food-waste rescue and composting
“Today, an estimated one-third of all the food produced in the world goes to waste. And if food goes to the landfill and rots, it produces methane – a greenhouse gas even more potent than carbon dioxide.” – reference: https://www.worldwildlife.org
The problem: Nearly 60% of the waste that is delivered to the incinerator and landfill is made up of organic waste. A lot of energy is needed to burn organic waste because of its high water content. As the incinerator cannot burn all the rubbish it receives, the remaining amount is put into the landfill.
