SUSTAINABILITY 26/09/19 A Comparative Life Cycle Assessment of Meat Trays Made of Various Packaging Materials. In light of the debate on the circular economy, the EU strategy for plastics, and several national regulations, such as the German Packaging Act, polymeric foam materials as well as hybrid packaging (multilayered plastic) are now in focus.
To understand the environmental impacts of various tray solutions for meat packaging, a comparative environmental assessment was conducted. As an environmental assessment method, a life cycle assessment (LCA) was applied following the ISO standards 14040/44. The nine packaging solutions investigated were: PS-based trays (extruded polystyrene and extruded polystyrene with five-layered structure containing ethylene vinyl alcohol), PET-based trays (recycled polyethylene terephthalate, with and without polyethylene layer, and amorphous polyethylene terephthalate), polypropylene (PP) and polylactic acid (PLA).
The scope of the LCA study included the production of the tray and the end-of-life stage. ►▼ Show Figures. Réponses parlementaires concernant les déchets.

The agriculture is responsible for a massive use of plastic materials, in addition to energy and water inputs, chemical fertilizer and pesticides. Besides the pollution generated during the manufacture, at the end of their lifetime plastic materials used for crop covering, soil mulching, packaging, containers, pots, irrigation and drainage pipes, may became a pollution source when improperly disposed, leaved on the ground or burned. Instead the agricultural plastic waste (APW), if correctly collected, can be used as a new secondary raw material or as an energy source. An adequate APW management can prevent economical losses and environmental damages.

Waste and wastes are terms for unwanted materials. Examples include municipal solid waste (household trash/refuse), wastewater (such as sewage, which contains bodily wastes, or surface runoff), radioactive waste, and others. The term is often subjective (because waste to one person is not necessarily waste to another) and sometimes objectively inaccurate (for example, to send scrap metals to a landfill is to inaccurately classify them as waste, because they are recyclable).
The terms can have various connotations, including pejorative tone (for example, "this spoiled food is nothing but waste now") or a squandering of potential (for example, "growing residential lawns in the desert is a waste of water"). Litter refers to waste disposed of improperly.

National Waste Report Evaluation The National Waste Report 2010 was launched by the Environment Protection and Heritage Council on 7 May 2010.
The report was written during 2009 in parallel with the development of the National Waste Policy: Less Waste, More Resources and provided part of the evidence base for the policy. The National Waste Report 2010 Evaluation Workshops study is the result of a stakeholder evaluation process completed in 2011. The National Waste Report is designed to 'assist government, businesses and the community to make sound policies and decisions, and ... help individuals to contribute to waste minimisation in meaningful and achievable ways'.* The development and publication of future reports is an integral component of Strategy 16 of the National Waste Policy.
National Waste Reports are to be produced triennially. In 2010-11, an evaluation process was developed and implemented to inform the development of the 2013 report. DEFRA 20/08/12 Legal definition of waste guidance. This guidance is aimed at businesses and other organisations which take decisions on a day-to-day basis about whether something is or is not waste. In most cases, the decision is straightforward and whoever is taking the decision does not need guidance from the competent authorities to help them take it. However, in some cases, the decision is more difficult (e.g. where the substance or object has a value or a potential use or where the decision is about whether waste has been fully recovered or recycled and has therefore ceased to be waste). We consulted on the draft at the start of 2010 but pledged to publish the full document soon after the publication of the EC guidance on the WFD to ensure that the definition of waste on the two documents was still fully aligned.
The guidance is divided in three parts: The Legal Definition of Waste guidance will help operators making the decision as to whether a material is waste or not, however it cannot cover all specific issues.

FAO 01/02/10 FAO studies the relationships between urban food waste, habitats, scavengers and zoonotic diseases. FAO studies the relationships between urban food waste, habitats, scavengers and zoonotic diseases Rapidly rising incomes and urbanization, combined with underlying population growth, are driving demand for meat and other animal products in many developing countries, and, indirectly, have also increased the amount of food waste that certain zoonosis-harbouring scavengers seek to survive on.
Understanding the dynamics of disease hosts is relevant considering that animal diseases crossing over to humans are of increasing global concern and given that growing economic integration, labour migration to urban centres and trade expansion make it possible for outbreaks to rapidly spread in human populations.
