The Monterey Regional Waste Management District in California is just completing a 5,000 tonne per year plant for the anaerobic digestion of food waste.

Keeping with a theme of food waste, and several different approaches to cut it, here are some tips and ideas: - A smart fridge that can tell you when food you've bought might be need to be consumed.- Reducing the amount of food on display in supermarkets to keep food fresh- Selling food that doesn't meet aesthetic standards at a discount rather than waste it- Making clear laws in relation to labelling of "use by" dates, being clear whether that is a date for peak quality, or when it becomes dangerous to eat.
