This project pursues four main objectives:
Demonstrate that with good management practices cabin waste can successfully tackled. A great deal of cabin waste can be separated on-board, improving the amount of waste recycled and its purity, thereby obtaining a better valorisation.
Prove that Cat. 1 waste can be dealt with in a more environmentally friendly way. Currently, by Spanish law international catering waste has to be disposed to landfill or incinerated.
Contribute to the reduction of the high carbon footprint associated to the generation and inadequate management of cabin waste.
Set the basis for replication through standard protocols. A principal strength of the project resides in its comprehensive approach, the strong partnership and its replication potential as will be demonstrated at Heathrow airport.
