Study Tour on Effective Food Waste Recycling

Separate collection of food waste has more than 20 years of experience in Italy. Many Cities are now running separate collection schemes by using compostable liners, mainly made of bioplastics. Food waste is collected both at large producers (i.e. the Ho.Re.Ca. sector) and at households, including also families living in high-rise buildings and flats. In some cities and areas the density of inhabitants, served be separate collections, exceeding 7000 persons/sqkm. Both composting and AD are standard facilities for food waste recycling in Italy and CIC has established a National Quality Assurance Scheme for composting plant, actually certifying more than 30% of the Italian Compost Production.
