The main aim of WP3 is to assess food waste management solutions recommended from WPs 1 and 2. This will be done using Life Cycle Assessment and similar methodologies to calculate the environmental but also the economic and social impact from different actions preventing or valorising the food waste.
The main aim of WP4 is to involve different stakeholders (farmers, food industry, retail, hospitality sector, consumers, charity, ministry, legislation, research etc.) in Finland, Sweden, Norway and Germany, to discuss the findings of WP1-3, and decide on the best approaches to reduce food waste in the food chain, and find optimal uses for the waste streams.
The main aim of WP2 is to convert food waste into high value products. Acid fermentation in plug-flow reactors is used to implement an economical feasible method to use food waste as feedstock for bioprocesses. First, we collect and characterize the waste material from different canteens, which are delivered from the project partners.
