"Modelling of food waste from farm to fork within a CGE framework"
by Bartelings, Heleen and George Philippidis

Worldwide around 1.3 billion tonnes of food gets wasted each year with much of it ending up in landfill or incinerators and contributing to climate change. It is a problem we will continue to face for coming decades. In this paper we focus on developing a method and database required to include a food waste along the supply chain in a CGE model. Food waste can be generated as post- harvest losses, during manufacturing and processing, during retail and transport and during consumption. Food waste generated in the various stages can be collected as organic waste and composted or collected as rest waste and incinerated and landfilled. The system also tracks emissions as a result of using different waste treatment alternatives. By modelling the entire waste flow starting from post-harvest losses to final consumption, it becomes possible to analyse the entire food waste problem and analyse where policies would have the most impact to reduce food waste.
