Two pilot projects are making great progress under the project REAL, funded by the European Commission.
Lookie Waste, the mobile-based application focuses on food consumption to monitor food waste and food packaging waste generated at the consumer level in daily life. It assesses the impact of food and packaging waste by calculating CO2eq emissions over its life cycle, from resource extraction to disposal, and proposes appropriate alternatives for the management of food waste.
The study based in the district of Dimapur in Nagaland, India is using life-cycle based information tools and methodologies to identify hotspots where interventions can be made for improving sustainability along the fruits and vegetables supply chain.
