09Jan2017

A contract for Consulting Services for business plan development of the infrastructure for the activities of the programme ‘LIFE-F4F (Food for Feed): An Innovative Process for Transforming Hotels’ Food Wastes into Animal Feed’ was signed between ENVIROPLAN SA and the United Association of Solid Waste Management in Crete (ESDAK).

The main aim of the LIFE-F4F project is to evaluate, through a pilot-scale, scale demonstration, an innovative and simple technology, and a low-emission process that enables the safe transformation of food waste, mainly from hotels (and more generally from the hospitality industry and restaurants), into animal feed.

Food will be processed using a solar energy to pasteurise and dry food waste, a process that has not been tested or applied previously, either in Europe or elsewhere worldwide. The F4F process will address the need to reduce waste food going to landfill, and will support the implementation of separation schemes at source for food waste to create valuable raw materials for the production of feed.

This reuse process, in line with the circular economy concept, will transform a waste management process into a feed producing one (and has been licensed as such). As it utilises solar power (directly and indirectly), it is also a low energy and low carbon emission process. The project aims to influence EU legislation on waste, the Circular Economy Package and the Roadmap to a Resource Efficient Europe.
