Specialists focused on the use of sustainable technologies for managing food waste and processing raw materials, as about 80% of municipal solid waste is daily produced from food waste.

According to them, the country produces 16,015 Tons of solid household waste per day and will be three times more than 47,000 Tons by 2025.

If an integrated approach to cooperation with the use of modern technologies in public and private initiatives is impossible, food waste can pose a serious risk to health.

There is a need for possible solutions that can improve the system through sustainable recovery methods in order to control food waste and turn it into raw materials.

The food expert said that in the food industry, the most common and polluting industries are shrimp, jam, juice, pasta, French fries, and confectionery. Depending on the type of food waste, food wastes are used as fodder for farm animals such as cattle, sheep, pigs and other animals.

According to experts, the rapid growth of industries, lack of financial resources, strict regulations, weak institutions, low choice of technologies and lack of public awareness have made food processing services unsatisfactory.

Food waste is majorly generated from the hotels and restaurants that too in huge volume. However, many renowned hotel brands such as ITC Maurya has installed a BioUrja plant, which turned out to be an appreciable investment. The set up was commissioned in 2016 which came with the cost of approximately 45 Lakh. Another brand, Belmond Copacabana Palace, a place where you can spot some Hollywood celebs in Brazil has recycled over 1,800 Gallons of cooking oil and leftover from all the food waste, after crushing it to a volume of almost 88%. This has been possible owing to the spreading awareness among the people about the advantages of recycled food waste and hazardous consequences if left untreated.
