According to a March 2007 report from the Waste and Resources Action Program (WRAP), food waste is one of the largest single fractions in the UK municipal solid waste stream, but only around 2% of the available amount is collected separately for composting or anaerobic digestion. The UK, along with other members of the European Union, are required to meet a Landfill Directive that mandates reduction in the amount of biodegradable waste going to municipal landfill. "Dealing With Food Waste In The UK," authored by Dominic Hogg, along with Josef Barth, Konrad Schleiss and Enzo Favoino, was prepared under a contract with WRAP. Combining anaerobic and aerobic steps within the treatment process can bring benefits, explain the authors. This report shows that the UK can learn from this experience and implement cost-effective systems for the collection and management of biowastes, which reduce greenhouse gas emissions and bring real environmental benefits.
