In this project, the focus is on S-huset and library, because those are the places where students spend a lot of time. Those places are expected to have a high amount of food waste production, because they are located close to the cantina. Moreover, if there is going to be implemented a sorting system in the library and s-huset, it will reach out to the students and have an impact in their behaviour towards sorting waste. The aim with this project is therefore to characterize the domestic waste produced in the Shuset and the library in order to find the amount of food waste produced. Furthermore, the biogas potential in the organic waste is to be determined with a BMP test. This will be the background for a CO2 assessment on a waste handling system where food waste is segregated and processed into biogas.
