A collaborative effort by the Department of Energy and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory research team has recently conducted a study concerning the expected deadline for increasing the number of landfills across the geographical landscape of the United States coupled with integration of disposing larger amounts of organic waste that can be enacted in multiple states. The following research has encouraged researchers to examine other methods for helping scientists  tackle the issue of food waste disposal means and solutions.

The research team determines that while no single solution exists for the entirety of the United States for dealing with food disposal measures the latter examine the conclusion that the economics pertaining to five different methods of food disposal means are far less expensive than its counterpart. One such method even includes simply tossing the food into a giant pile of landfill. The team quotes that an optimized waste management system in the U.S will vary from region to region due to varying degrees of wastages as no one technology exists to carefully subvert the food waste measures for the following issue. An optimized food waste management system is the one which incorporates a wider range of technologies all through the sub-continent, as the research team concludes.

The team further pertains to stats that point that more than 75% of the total food waste measures lead to landfill based solutions. However, many landfills are running at full capacity and a significant number of the latter are even scheduled to close by later 2050. The second method of food waste disposal measures lead to organic waste disposal that are erected in several states. Additionally, anaerobic digestion, composting, incineration, and hydrothermal liquefaction are the methods that the researchers lay out in their following study that can replace the traditional measures of food waste disposal in the near future.
