There’s an abundance of food waste in the world due to the fact that so many people waste food and that the world population is growing. In Taiwan, they feed 2/3rd of food waste to their 5.5 million pigs, which subsequently become their largest meat export.
“We realized there was a lot of kitchen waste and that if we put it in incinerators it would hamper incineration because it’s wet,” Dr. Llinas, deputy inspector general with the government’s Bureau of Environmental Inspection, told the Guardian. “And Taiwan’s land is limited, so if you build a landfill or an incinerator people will protest.”
Something that is interesting is that by the 100 million ton feeding food waste supply to live stock, you could reduce land as well.
