Million tons of waste are taken to landfills every year. This leads to generation of poisonous materials such as methane which is very dangerous for the environment and people`s life. This can be avoided.
The project called "Perspectives of food waste utilization in a university canteen" worked out by Saint Petersburg National Research University of IT, Mechanics and Optics students suggests the solution - waste utilization, composting and regaining.
Similar system is already implemented by the majority of European and American universities. Therefore such a system can be considered zero waste snd eco frendly. The project is planned to be implemented in all ITMO University campuses and other educational institutions in Saint Petersburg.
