Abstract

This study analyses the impact of diverting food waste from the solid waste management system to the sewerage system using life cycle assessment. The disposal of food waste through the sewers has a positive effect on fossil fuel resources and human toxicity, non-carcinogenic. However, the traditional waste management system lead to larger savings in climate change, reduced discharge of nutrients to the receiving water bodies and lower water demand.
