The growing attractiveness of sustainable production leads to increasing interest of using waste as a secondary resource. Food waste is a valuable feedstock (e.g. energy, protein, enzymes production etc.) that can be used in climate resilient bio-based economy. Further development and expansion of circular bioeconomy is a top priority for the future research and technology promotion in Europe.
The Master project is part of the HORIZON2020 project FoodRus- Circular solutions for resilient food systems (https://www.foodrus.eu/). The objective of the project is to perform a preliminary market scenario analysis for biowaste derived high value products.
The project will be divided into three phases:
- Review of food waste types and amounts
- Linking food waste material stocks and market price of identified high value products
- Applying selected industrial ecology model tools perform system analysis of defined food waste valorization systems
