Why Recycle Food Waste?
Recycling your food waste helps the environment in a number of ways. Not only does it reduce our carbon footprint, it also helps in creation of energy resources. The biggest contributors in food waste in commercial standing are:
- Supermarkets and
- Other food manufacturing industries.
However, the food we waste in our households seems to be way more than the food wasted by commercial industries. It is estimated that our households throw away about 7 million tonnes of food waste every year and most of it is still good enough to be eaten. This means that it is important to not only practise good food management at your office but at home too. You can talk to one of our consultants to learn more about ways in which you can reduce food waste from home as well.
How is Food Waste Recycled?
Food recycling is just another way of food waste management and it is important that you know the ins and outs of it so you can understand how you are helping by recycling your food.
Food waste recycling does not involve a lot of complex step, it is only done in three ebay steps:
The first step is always the collection. This is when your food waste company comes in to collect your food waste to be transported to recycling plants. At Waste company we can offer
you discretion so that our food waste collection does not disturb the running of your business or be a cause for a sore sight amongst your customers. We also tailor our collection to your preferences so if you prefer we collect at night, we can do that. The frequency of the collection is also depending entirely on you.
At the recycling plants your food waste will then be deposited into anaerobic tanks where it will be broken down by heat to produce fuel or become an energy source. To control the release of harmful gasses to the atmosphere, the food waste is burnt at high temperatures in an enclosed space.
This is the process where food waste is turned into a compost to create fertilizers. Just like anaerobic digestion, in-vessel food composting involves the use of controlled temperatures to break down the food waste to something else. It is also done in closed spaces to prevent harmful gases like methane and carbon dioxide escaping into the atmosphere.
Landfill Waste Diversion
At Waste company we are firm believers of diverting food waste from ending up in our landfills. Even though food can decompose quickly, when that happens in open spaces like landfills proves to be harmful because of the methane gas that food releases as it decomposes.
