Ugly food: a solution to food wastage? I The Feed

Every year, Australia wastes an $8-10 billion worth of food, where farms throw a quarter of fruit and vegetables away because they don't meet aesthetic standards. Facebook: Twitter: Tumblr:

Perfect material cycle for aluminium | Resource Efficiency

Perfect recycling management means the complete recycling of a product at the end of its use phase, with the creation of a new product from the individual components. In order to turn this vision into reality, it is necessary to separate products as finely as possible into their single components. Then the resulting materials can be reused by type. As far as the recycling of aluminium window frames is concerned, the Hydro Aluminium Recycling Deutschland GmbH has taken another step closer to the perfect materials cycle, as the VDI Center for Resource Efficiency shows in its new film: Following a precise analysis of the shredded aluminium parts, a new shredding plant separates the individual alloys so accurately that the recycled aluminium can be returned to the materials cycle. Since aluminium is used in a multitude of different alloys, proper sorting into clear fractions is essential for comprehensive recycling. Therefore, the shredding plant uses special x-ray equipment and different screening methods. The metal separation by fractions enables the recycling of 30,000 tons of high-quality aluminium per year and a reduction of CO2 emissions by more than 200,000 tons. This key technology was funded within the framework of the Environmental Innovation Programme of the Federal Ministry of Research and Development.

Gerettetes Obst – Ressourceneffizienz durch Lebensmittelabfallvermeidung

Jedes Jahr landen in Deutschland viele Tonnen Obst und Gemüse wegen kleinster optischer Mängel im Müll, obwohl die Ware bedenkenlos verzehrt werden könnte. Ein Berliner Unternehmen hat einen Weg gefunden, diese Ausschussware zu verwerten und ein neues Produkt kreiert. Der Film „Gerettetes Obst – Ressourceneffizienz durch Lebensmittelabfallvermeidung“ stellt die Dörrwerk GmbH vor, die in einem energiesparenden Verfahren Fruchtpapier herstellt. Für die Produktion verarbeitet die Berliner Manufaktur ausschließlich aussortiertes Obst, das direkt bei regionalen Erzeugern oder, im Fall von Tropenfrüchten, bei Händlern eingesammelt wird. Nicht nur das Fruchtpapier an sich trägt zur Abfallvermeidung bei, auch dessen Herstellung mit Hilfe eines speziell entwickelten Dörrofens ist ressourceneffizient. Durch eine intelligente Abwärmenutzung und eine innovative Lüftungssteuerung spart der Ofen beim Trocknungsprozess 66 Prozent Energiekosten gegenüber herkömmlichen Anlagen ein. Weil der Ofen energieeffizient arbeitet, kann das Unternehmen kostendeckend in Deutschland produzieren und verschafft sich somit einen Wettbewerbsvorteil durch Ressourceneffizienz.

In Germany, several tons of consumable fruit and vegetables are thrown away every year simply because they display tiny defects. These small flaws in no way impair the fresh foods’ quality. A Berlin business has found a way to make good use of these rejected wares, creating a new product.

The film Rescued fruit – Reducing food waste increases resource efficiency introduces
Dörrwerk GmbH, a company producing fruit paper with an energy-saving technique. The Berlin manufacturer processes solely rejected fruit collected directly from regional farmers, or, in the case of tropical fruits, from retailers.

Not only the fruit paper contributes to reducing food waste, the process itself is resource efficient. Dörrwerk GmbH has developed a unique drying oven that implements intelligent waste heat usage and an inventive ventilation control, reducing energy costs by 66 percent compared to conventional methods. The energy efficient oven is economically viable in Germany, giving the company a competitive edge via resource efficiency.
