Conference “Comprehensive strategies for the reduction of food waste” on November 22 in Barcelona

On the occasion of the European Week of Waste Reduction 2018, the Conference “Integral Strategies for the reduction of food waste” was organized on November 22 at the School of International Trade of the University Pompeu Fabra (ESCI-UPF) in Barcelona.

During  the morning session, the Ceres and Zero Cabin waste projects were presented. Both of them address waste management from a holistic perspective, with the associated impacts and reduction strategies. The CERES project showed the impacts associated with food production and consumption and food waste reduction strategies. While the LIFE Zero Cabin Waste project highlighted the typology of the waste generated on board to implement selective collection on airplanes, as well as the cossumption studies of the menus and experience on board by the passengers.
