Chief Investigator:

Dr. DENG Wenjing

Project Year:



This project has been awarded Early Career Scheme/GRF 2013/2014. In this study, the environmental impacts and costs associated with four food waste management options in Hong Kong, landfilling, incineration, anaerobic digestion and food waste mechanical composter system will be assessed in the perspective of global warming which has become the most serious global environmental problem. Study results will provide scientific evidence to support the decision-making of the low-carbon food waste management system in the future in Hong Kong and China.
