Project Abstract

All food has value, at every step of its lifecycle. And, even when it is past edibility, food scraps can feed microorganisms that turn into compost, recapturing the nutrients that feed plants. Healthy soil absorbs carbon from the atmosphere helping to mitigate climate change. But, when food waste goes into landfills, it decomposes anaerobically and gives off methane, a much more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide. Therefore, the city of San Diego must implement innovations to keep food scraps out of the waste stream and utilize them to their full potential.
