Lunch seminar "“Prioritizing food waste management options from the waste hierarchy” - 17th Feb

Last changed: 17 February 2017

Mattias Eriksson - Postdoctoral researcher at SLU Department of Energy and Technology

Food waste is a problem with economic, environmental and social implications, making it both important and complex. Previous studies have addressed food waste management options at the less prioritized end of the waste hierarchy, but information on more prioritised levels is also needed when selecting the best available waste management options. Investigating the global warming potential of different waste management options offers a limited perspective, but is still important for validating generations from the waste hierarchy in a local context. The two studies that will be presented compare the effect on greenhouse gas emissions of different food waste management scenarios representing different levels in the waste hierarchy in the local context of the two cities Uppsala and Växjö.


Please join us for a free lunch and seminar, followed by discussion.
