An environmental, economic, and social evaluation of the production of animal feed from food waste: A Life Cycle Assessment

Conference Dates

June 5 – 10, 2022


Purpose: We conduct a triple bottom line (TBL) assessment of the environmental, economic, and social impacts of the production of animal feed from food waste (FW). Animal feed production scenarios (SRs) are compared to the business as usual method of sanitary landfilling and incineration with energy recovery. Methods: Within TBL assessment, the environmental bottom line (BL) applies a gate-to-grave life cycle assessment (LCA) approach considering a functional unit of 1 ton of FW.
