Food Waste Management Derby

A higher rate of food waste is seen in wealthy nations, while 842 million people in developing nations suffer from chronic hunger. By the end of the year, there may be more people dying from hunger than from the current COVID-19 pandemic, according to Oxfam. As defined by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), food waste is food that is fit for consumption but is discarded by choice or leaving it open to spoil or expire. Food waste refers to both processed and semi-processed food intended for human consumption.

Food waste management becomes a critical need in this case. When we manage food waste, we manage how much of it is wasted since, unfortunately, food waste is an inevitable phenomenon. This includes reducing it at the source by making sure that proper food management practises are followed and also recycling whatever food waste is inevitably created. Food waste is being seen as a growing, though avoidable, problem in the United Nations, which has set a goal of halving global food waste by 2030 at retail and consumer levels, as well as reducing food losses along production and supply chains.

Food Waste Recycling Derby

We have a wide range of options when it comes to recycling food waste. A solution that complies with the highest standards of compliance for environmental and human safety will be designed to adapt to your specific food waste requirements. Through composting, animal feed, and fertilizer, as well as environmentally friendly technologies, such as anaerobic digestion and vermiculture, we will provide you with a tailor-made solution that suits your food waste needs, while remaining in compliance with human and environmental safety regulations. Here’s how the food waste recycling process goes:

We’ll first talk to you to get a better understanding of the amount of food waste you create to be able to create a solution that works best for you. Depending on your food waste output, you may need a few wheelie bins to store your food waste in, separate from your other waste streams. Also depending on the volume of your food waste, you may need more or less collections. We will then begin the collection process and transport the food waste to one of our recycling facilities to officially begin the recycling process.

The most prominent form of food waste is anaerobic digestion. When organic compounds decay in the absence of oxygen, huge amounts of methane are released. Anaerobic digestion is conducted in enormous tanks that confine the odors and allow for easy capture of the gases that are subsequently delivered into the local electricity system. The solid waste from anaerobic digestion is composted, and the liquid is turned into a fertilizer that can help farmers and gardeners improve the quality of their land.
