Call Increased resource efficiency through circular economy

Purpose and goal

** Denna text är maskinöversatt ** Increase the circularity of our aquapony by using insects raised on food waste for fish feed. Increase the quality of the process through digitalisation and a plan for scaling up. The project has shown that the current regulations need to be regulated to fit circular handling of food waste to animal feed. Traceability for quality assurance in the value chain through digitalisation and block chain is crucial for the circular management.

Expected results and effects

** Denna text är maskinöversatt ** We have increased our understanding of the waste funnel and how circular use of food waste can increase. Through a comprehensive survey of residual flows in the Swedish food chain, we have highlighted the potential. A substantial review of the regulations shows major weaknesses in the circular handling of food waste for animal feed. build databases, including block chain, to enable quality assurance through traceability in the value chain.

Planned approach and implementation

** Denna text är maskinöversatt ** Genomförd Stakeholder Opinion Assessment (SOA) gave us an overall picture of the entire value chain, and possible critical points for upscaling, through interviews with key players. Conducted residual flow analysis shows great potential for food waste. Analysis of regulations has shown major shortcomings for circularity. Genomförd User story map (USM) provides a visual picture of the necessary processes for digitization for the food chain food waste to feed production. USM is a common method for software development.
