Global Food Waste Management Market: Overview

Conversion of food waste into bio-based products and organic fertilizers

The production of bio-based products and organic fertilizers from food waste are feasible solutions for food waste management. Biofuel reduces GHG emissions by replacing fossil fuels for energy generation. Many companies produce bio-based products by utilizing food waste to reduce the adverse impact of GHG emission. .

Further, food-waste also contains high amounts of organic materials and is suitable for making organic fertilizer. Turning food waste into organic fertilizer can minimize waste disposal and helps regain the value of wasted food. This obtained fertilizer can be used efficiently for agricultural process. This will lead to the expansion of the global food waste management market at a CAGR of around 4% during the forecast period.

Increasing integration of GIS in food waste management

The geographic information system (GIS) is increasingly being used for site selection across the world. GIS is used to analyze various factors such as topography, land use, transportation facilities, and the degree of urbanization, which are compiled to identify landfill sites and potential environmental impacts. Hence, the use of GIS helps in selecting appropriate landfill sites, managing food waste efficiently, without causing environmental damage. This development is expected to have a positive impact on the overall market growth.
