Report on results for household food waste collection and decentralised shredding in the “Lübeck-case” : DECISIVE Deliverable D3.6 : a decentralised management scheme for innovative valorisation of urban biowaste
This study focuses on the collection and characterisation of bio-waste and in particular food waste (FW) as the core-substrate of DECISIVE. These issues are investigated in a case-study performed at the eco-settlement Lübeck-Flintenbreite (LF), which is part of the City of Lübeck (LC). Within the study, the locations are characterised, whereby LF specifically includes explanations on the settlement structures and LC focuses on the current applied collection and treatment procedures for bio-waste including source-separated bio-waste from biobins and non-separated bio-waste from residual waste bins. A waste composition analysis was carried out for wastes from bio-waste bins and residual waste bins comparing waste qualities. A special focus was placed on FW, which was distinguished into ten different fractions. Furthermore, an inventory of the technical infrastructure from LF was carried out. In LF a complete mAD system is available. It was constructed in an earlier project, but is yet to be operated. Specifically, the interface between source-separated bio-waste collection and mAD was investigated: the available decentralised shredder was operated with various source-separated bio-waste samples. Finally, scenarios for the transition of LF towards decentralised bio-waste management and the usability of the available mAD process units were evaluated.
