Umwelt & Nachhaltigkeit


Food waste is an important component of the "BioCycle," the cycle from food to food waste and back to food. Through proper sorting at home, efficient collection, and conversion into biogas and compost, we can step towards sustainable and renewable energy self-sufficiency and improved soil quality for agriculture, thus completing the cycle. This course unpacks these processes. Not only will you learn about the BioCycle, but you will also be able to experience what you can personally do to close it efficiently.

This course explores the lifecycle of household food waste. You will walk the whole cycle from resource to waste to resource covering generation, sorting, collection, valorisation of the waste followed by the creation of new products and their consumption. The course's practical application is showcased through a case study featuring a mini-biogas plant in Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg, which demonstrates the transformation from waste to biogas and liquid fertilizer used locally​​.
