Europe Food Waste Management Market Drivers and Restraints:

The use of food waste as a renewable energy source is an essential factor stimulating the market for Europe Food Waste Management systems. Food waste is one of the causes of methane that is used as a renewable energy source to power the various treatment plants. The trend shows that most of the food waste generated from food waste is recycled to produce organic fertilizers or animal feed, driving the growth of the Europe Food Waste Management market. The growing demand for improved technologies, such as gasification for waste treatment, is expected to create new opportunities in the next seven years. The gasification process converts organic materials such as biomass or combinations of inorganic and organic surpluses into a combustible gas called synthesis gas. On the other hand, the appearance of new technologies for the elimination of residues, followed by the need to generate another energy source, constitute opportunities in the world market for the Europe Food Waste Management.
