Food for thought: Innovative solution for food waste

Food waste, and its disposal and treatment, is becoming more topical across the Australian political and public landscape. The Rabobank 2019 Food Waste Report identified that food waste costs Australians $10 billion annually. But the good news is that businesses can play a large role in tackling the problem through the sustainable treatment of their organics. In fact, with the right technology and capability, organic waste doesn’t need to go to waste, but can provide numerous benefits for the environment and circular economy.

Organic waste recycling is a great example of how we can extract further value from our waste, and keep materials circulating through the economy in a beneficial way. Removing organics from landfill reduces carbon emissions, supports food security, improves soil carbon and crop productivity, and reduces the effects of drought. For businesses with a large volume of organics waste, an onsite organics treatment solution could also help to reduce the cost of regular waste disposal.

In Australia, Veolia has taken an innovative and best practice approach to dealing with Food Waste. In partnership with Iugis Pty Ltd, Veolia offers an onsite Food Digester technology, suitable for customers across a range of market sectors. This technology is suitable for any operation needing to manage and dispose of organic food waste, and can even provide real time data on environmental outcomes such as carbon emissions reduction through an easy to use web enabled interface. This solution is especially beneficial for customers in remote or rural areas, or some distance away from a dedicated composting facility.
