Let Food Waste Be Energy

Artaş Endüstriyel Tesisler Taahhüt ve Ticaret A.Ş. answered the questions of Can Karadut in the program of Taking Business Home on Industry Radio. YKB Deputy Evren Dindiren Dönmez talked about local solutions for food consumption and recycling.

Noting that a conscious approach to the issue in food consumption is extremely important, Dönmez said, “There are many stages that food passes until it reaches our table. Global warming is not just about gas from thermal power plants or cars. Many carbon emissions occur with the transportation of these foods. " said.


Donmez said that there should be a nutrition system where the consumption of local foods is ensured and underlined that in this sense, it is extremely important to reduce food waste.

Dönmez said, “A person takes out about 1 kilogram of garbage a day. Half of this garbage is organic waste. If we take the scale as Istanbul, we can say that approximately 10 thousand tons of waste is generated per day. " said.


Stating that it is necessary to recycle food waste as electrical and thermal energy and that the most important system of this will be biogas, Dönmez said, “We implemented Artaş kitchen waste disposal system in 2014. Our R&D department worked long before the zero waste regulation was issued. " said.

He said that with this system, not only food wastes before cooking, but also wastes after cooking are converted into biogas.


Dönmez emphasized that they use biogas later in heating and stove making activities.

Speaking at Industry Radio, Evren Dindiren Dönmez stated that the wastes generated by countries' diets are also different, adding that local solutions and practices should be studied.
