            Rise in global food waste


            Landfill and incineration techniques


            Focus in rural areas


            Segregation & collection of waste

The Global Food Waste Management Market is segmented By Waste type, by Process, by Application, by Method and By Region.

On the basis of Waste type, the municipalities & households segment dominated the global market, followed by the food service providers segment. The waste generated from the day-to-day usage of items such as product packaging, clothing, food scraps, newspapers, paints, batteries, homes, schools, and societies comes to be known as municipality & household waste. Communities in the US offer a variety of options for conveniently and safely managing household waste. Waste management companies focus on recycling a large amount of waste generated from the residential sector; new technologies are used to reduce and recycle this waste.

The food waste management market, by Process, is segmented into aerobic digestion, anaerobic digestion, and incineration/combustion. The anaerobic digestion segment accounted for the largest market share. The energy produced through anaerobic digestion is neither dependent on weather nor subject to price fluctuations. Thus, it is considered a lucrative source of energy and an effective alternative to fossil fuel.

The food waste management market, by Application, is segmented as animal feed, fertilizers, biofuel, and power generation. The animal feed segment accounted for the largest market share. Food waste mainly consists of organic waste that can be completely decontaminated by thermal treatment, preferably complete sterilization, and that which can safely be used as feedstuff. There are various methods for yielding animal feed from waste; for instance, processing of organic waste from larvae to yield feed.
