Abstract

717 000 tonnes of food waste is produced by Swedish households each year. Studies show that two thirds of our food waste go in the garbage bin instead of the compost-bin, eventually ending up in landfills. If we could digest the organic waste the impact on our environment could be reduced by up to 75 percent. The aim of LOOP is to empower food waste recycling by turning it into a seamless and encouraging routine in apartment households. Focusing on comfortability and efficiency for the user, the end goal is to increase recycling by taking advantage of the energy and nutrients in food waste, to create a closed loop.
