Food giants shoot for 100% renewable energy target


In total, fuel consumption across the food and drink industry was slashed by 65% between 1990 and 2012, according to EEA figures. 

Most of these reductions came from energy efficiency improvements, and a move towards cleaner fuels replacing, for instance, coal and heavy fuels with gas, according to FoodDrinkEurope, an industry trade group.

In July this year, FoodDrinkEurope published an industry-wide survey. It found most European food manufacturers had started shifting to renewable energies, with 90% of respondents saying they were already using them   


The European Biogas Association (EBA) said it firmly opposes the incineration of organic waste coming from the food industry and households. "We strongly support minimising waste production as much as possible, in particular of edible food.

The waste from food and beverage production and residues from agriculture that cannot be avoided should be recycled in biogas plants bringing two valuable products: renewable gas for electricity, heating and transport, and organic fertilisers (similar to compost), which take valuable nutrients back to the soil.

 In addition, this process also avoids GHG emissions from reaching the atmosphere what is normally the case for untreated organic waste. Feedstock for anaerobic digestion plants is sourced locally, usually a few kilometres away from the plant, meaning that biogas is a truly decentralised energy production and a recycling method, having nothing to do with rainforests.

We welcome the initiatives of the food and drink sector to develop sustainable and efficient systems to recycle their waste."

Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
