Food redistribution in the Nordic Region : Phase II: Identification of best practice models for enhanced food redistribution by Johan Hultň( )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Nordic Food Redistribution Project investigates food waste reduction through the redistribution of surplus food. The project goal is to increase and improve redistribution activities from donors to food banks and charity organisations in order to enhance both environmental and social sustainability in the Nordic region. The phase II report proposes best practice models concerning legislation, organisation, quality assurance and registration of food. Report recommendations are addressed at redistribution and food-serving actors, donors and authorities and focus on how to improve the quality of redistributed food, how to enhance collaboration between the various actors as well as how to prioritize and secure funding for redistribution activities. The report is part of the Nordic Prime Ministers' green growth initiative: "The Nordic Region - leading in green growth."
Food redistribution in the Nordic Region : experiences and results from a pilot study( )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: This report has a focus on waste prevention through redistribution of food to low-income people via charity organisations. Food redistribution can go via national food banks and via direct redistribution, often on a local level. Food banks in the Nordic region redistributed about 1.5 mill meals in 2013, and local charity organisations probably 2-3 times more. The regulatory framework for food redistribution is described and discussed in the report. The demand of and potential for redistribution is probably much higher than at present, and the report points out strategies and measures for how food banks can contribute to secure a further development. The report is part of the Nordic Prime Ministers' overall green growth initiative: "The Nordic Region - leading in green growth"--Read more in the web magazine "Green Growth the Nordic Way."
Economic policy instruments for plastic waste : a review with Nordic perspectives( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: Achieving a high quality of waste plastic materials and recycling processes is a key challenge in closing the resource loops for plastics. This report reviews the status and trends for plastic waste flows and treatment in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. Furthermore, it gives an overview of existing policy instruments and the main challenges for designing policy instruments for improved recycling of plastic waste in these Nordic countries. The report identifies potential market failures associated with closing the resource loops for plastics. It reviews the economics research literature on policy instrument design for achieving optimal recycling rates and makes policy recommendations from the Nordic perspective. Finally, it presents results from a survey on market conditions to managers in the recycling and plastic manufacturing industry in Sweden
The Nordic textile commitment : a proposal of a common quality requirement system for textile collection, sorting, reuse and recycling by David Palm( )

EPR systems and new business models : reuse and recycling of textiles in the Nordic region : policy brief by David Watson( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The climate is changing, and the people in the Arctic are facing huge challenges. Many rely on natural resources for both subsistence and income. Successful adaptation to climate change and the sustainable use of resources require observation of the environment. Scientific knowledge of the environment is incomplete, and conventional scientific monitoring is logistically difficult. Arctic citizens observe the environment all year-round. Their observations and knowledge are, however, not systematically used in the political decision process. An international symposium was therefore organized to encourage Arctic cooperation, and to exchange experiences, on the use of citizens' knowledge and observations to document natural resources and inform the political process. The meeting drew participants from all the Arctic countries. Their discussions and conclusions are presented in this report
Relation between greenhouse gas emissions and economic profit for different configurations of biogas value chains: A case study on different levels of sector integration( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Biogas production through anaerobic digestion of organic waste and manure can potentially reduce greenhouse gas emissions in several sectors such as the waste, transport, energy and agricultural sector. The aim of this paper is to study the effect of different levels of sector integration in biogas value chains, and to discuss how different policy measures and regulations influence the reduction of greenhouse gases. Environmental impacts and economic profit were calculated for four different biogas value chain configurations in Norway. Further, the most profitable scenario was used as a reference to calculate the economic incentives needed to make the other scenarios as profitable as the reference. The results show that a broad integration of sectors is beneficial in terms of reduction of greenhouse gases. There is, however, a negative coherency between reduction of greenhouse gases and economic profitability when it comes to different levels of sector integration. The calculations showed that only a small increase in economic incentives are necessary to make biomethane for transport purposes as profitable as the reference. Inclusion of the agricultural sector into waste-based biogas value chains appears to be challenging and is likely to require greater incentives. Highlights: High level of sector integration is beneficial for GHG mitigation in biogas value chains. Value chains with the highest GHG emission reduction have the lowest economic profit. Integration of the transport sector requires small economic incentives. Integrating the waste and agricultural sector is challenging

Initiatives on prevention of food waste in the retail and wholesale trades( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This project was initiated by the Nordic Council of Ministers and its waste prevention group. The background to the project is that waste prevention is the highest priority in the waste hierarchy according to the EU Waste Directive. One other reason is the heavily increasing discussions in society on food waste in general. The project has been focusing on amounts of food waste, causes for food waste generation and initiatives to reduce the amounts of food waste from the retail and wholesale sector. Furthermore it gives some recommendations to measures that could be taken to change the present situation

Methodological accounting tool for Climate and Energy Planning in a Norwegian municipality( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: The aim of this study was to propose a methodology to support the production of Climate and Energy Plans in Norwegian municipalities by analyzing whether locally available woody biomass, specifically forest logging residues, within the municipality (in this case, Fredrikstad), could cover the demand for heating in municipality buildings over the next 20 years. Three different tools, a geoprocessing tool for forestry (GEOSKOG), a methodology for environmental assessment (Life Cycle Assessment) and a tool for processing geographical data (Geographical Information System), were used in combination with energy data related to municipal buildings. The goal was to quantify the share of energy end-use (heat) that could potentially be replaced by bioenergy from forest logging residues and to calculate the potential GHG benefits from this substitution. The annual heating demand for municipal buildings in Fredrikstad currently heated by electric and oil boilers was 9.3GWh. The potential annual GHG savings from the bioenergy substitution of fossil fuel (oil) boilers and electric boilers (Norwegian and Nordic electricity mix) equaled 292 tonnes CO2 -eq, 95 tonnes CO2 -eq and 535 tonnes CO2 -eq respectively. Highlights: Forest logging residues supply fulfill the heat demand in municipal buildings. Bioenergy provides net GHG benefits by replacing electricity and oil boilers. Priority areas are highlighted by combining GIS and forest model
