According to the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations, each year around one-third of the food produced for human consumption — approximately 1.3 billion tons — is lost or wasted. Much of this waste is caused by throwing away food that has gone bad or is not fit for sale. We have seen a number of ways to reduce this type of food waste, such as systems that eliminate food packaging and dynamic pricing platforms that encourage customers to buy food before it goes out of date. But now there is a way to reuse food waste by turning it into plastics.
