ORGANIC AND FOOD WASTE
The specific objectives are to carry out a pilot project based on the design of the OnlineNetwork Tool in Lisbon, to test an innovative approach to dealing with food. One objective is to identify the quantities and diversity of sources and food waste in Lisbon, to calculate all indicators.
Another objective is to promote a regular online report to citizens and stakeholders on the results and progress indicators achieved in Lisbon.
The realization of information and awareness campaigns dedicated to different target groups, in order to divert kitchen waste from mixed waste and increase recycling rates, is also an axis of action.
Lisbon will create a wide network of stakeholders in the food value chain (donors, redistributors and beneficiaries) and commit them to the challenge of food waste and the online network. It will develop and demonstrate the effects of a tool that supports the online network and integrates the two activities: prevention of food waste and separation of bio-waste sources. In addition, Lisbon will develop campaigns to reduce food waste and separate sources (door to door and digital/online).
Copenhagen will survey three wet screening technologies and collect bio-waste separated from a limited area of around 200 households in apartment blocks. The goal is to find a technology that can produce a nutrient-rich product for use by farmers.
Hamburg will investigate measures that can increase citizen participation in the separation of organic waste in the housing sector and, therefore, the volume of organic waste available to tenants. A variety of equipment for the separation of biological waste and information will be offered to landlords, tenants and owners to overcome existing obstacles, such as lack of space, social context, etc.
Genoa aims to promote the prevention of food waste in the city, in collaboration with environmental and consumer associations. The partnership will explore the possibility of adapting the App/IT tool developed in Lisbon.
