Food Waste Management
Food waste is generated at different stages in the food chain system namely starting from farming, processing of the crops, transportation, cooking food and consumption of food. If waste food is dumped into landfills, the wastes decompose giving rise to various greenhouse gases leading to global warming. Removing food waste from landfills we may help in reduction of the carbon footprint thereby storing the necessary nutrients back to the soil. The good ways to convert the food wastes to something useful are in converting the wasted food materials to Biogas. Anaerobic digestion helps in degrading the discarded wastes in turn can be used for generation of electricity as well as fuels for transport.
