The goals of this research project are to 1) prepare a roadmap of sustainable organic waste management
solutions, ideally according with United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) introduced Waste
Hierarchy, 2) find the best available practices of food and biobased waste reduction, reuse and disposal,
3) pilot those immediate options available, 4) research considerations for the development of on-site
biowaste disposal facilities at airports that could also serve the surrounding communities, and 5) design a
communication plan to have employees, tenants and customers onboard on the process of change to meet
the ultimate target of zero food waste.
