Abstract

Huge amounts of food waste are generated worldwide. Efficient valorisation strategies ensure that embedded energy and resources are at least partially recuperated. Food waste is a highly biodegradable material with high water content, and as such well destined for biogas production through anaerobic digestion. In order to ensure successful implementation of food waste valorisation via anaerobic digestion, a range of key factors related to the characteristics of the material as well as to more general frameworks need to be considered.
