当分解食物浪费是在厌氧情况下完成的,通常在垃圾填埋场,一代的甲烷。甲烷是一种重要的全球变暖的温室气体有巨大的潜力,是25倍以上二氧化碳(Ostblom 2010)的影响。大量的垃圾填埋场破坏或利用和捕捉甲烷的生成是通过有机废物。垃圾填埋场被占领和覆盖大面积和需要专门的环境在较长持续时间的管理。因此,它可以表示,食物浪费以显著的方式有助于空间在现代垃圾填埋场的要求。此外,它可以表示,这个问题主要是被夸大了旅游业和酒店业的规模的增加(Lorente 2001)。这导致了越来越多的食物垃圾分离的必要性,为酒店行业的运营商提供了一个重要机会改进垃圾的安排的浪费。
Wastage of food presents a significant issue of resource management in the industry of tourism and hospitality. There are a number of initiatives taken up for preventing the occurrence of food waste to ensure preservation of resources and to provide the best outcome in the environment (Herczeg 2010). However, where there is continuous wastage of food, recovery contributes in providing better solution in comparison with disposal.
This paper will be discussing this particular issue stating a preferable option of policy for dealing with the issue. This paper will also be conducting an analysis of stakeholder that are most affected by the issue of food waste.
When decomposition of food waste is done in the anaerobic situations, typically in landfills, there is generation of methane. Methane is a significant greenhouse gas having huge potentiality of global warming that is 25 times more than the effect of carbon dioxide (Östblom 2010). A number of landfills destroy or utilize and capture the generation of methane that is done by organic wastes. Landfills are known to occupying and covering large areas and need specialized management of environment over extended duration of time. Hence, it can be stated that food waste contributes in a significant manner to the requirements of space for having modern landfills. Also, it can be stated that this issue is mainly being exaggerated by an increase in the size of tourism and hospitality industry (Lorente 2001). This has resulted in increasing the need for separation of food waste that provides the operators in hotel industry with a significant opportunity for refinement of landfill bound arrangements of waste.
