New Global Report Helps Cities Manage Their Food Waste

The report Global Food Waste Management: An Implementation Guide for Cities has been written by the World Biogas Association (WBA) in collaboration with the C40 Cities Food, Waste and Waste Programme. The report puts particular emphasis on the importance of separately collecting and treating inedible food waste, which if implemented on a global level would have the same impact in terms of CO2 emissions reduction as taking all cars in the EU off the road. The report also highlights the role of biogas technologies, which through anaerobic digestion (AD) recycle inedible food waste into renewable heat and power, clean transport fuel, and nutrient-rich biofertiliser.

Toronto May Take from Curb to Fuel Tank

An article in Solid Waste and Recycling Magazine by Kris Hornburg, the Program Manager for the City of Toronto’s Solid Waste Management Services Division describes how the City of Toronto is developing renewable natural gas (RNG) infrastructure that has the potential to represent a fully closed-carbon loop that could fuel its fleet from modified biogas processed at its anaerobic digestion facilities. That means the same collection trucks that pick-up Toronto’s organic waste could ultimately be fueled by that waste. The City is currently in the process of expanding its Dufferin Organics Processing Facility to increase its organics processing capacity and build a biogas cleanup facility in order to produce RNG. Solid Waste Management Services is also exploring the potential to produce RNG at three additional sites: the Disco Road Organics Processing Facility, the Keele Valley Landfill and the Green Lane Landfill.
