In Taiwan, leftover food scraps help farmers sustain porky appetites 24.3.2016 Guardian: Environment
Taiwan has institutionalized the practice of feeding leftover food to livestock, an approach that many nations are using or considering to reduce their food waste. Now, two thirds of the country’s overall food waste helps feed its 5.5m pigs Every night, classical music blares from garbage trucks in Taipei, summoning people from their homes. In their hands, they clutch bags or buckets of kitchen scraps, which they dump into a bin on the truck. From there, the food travels to farms, where it helps ensure a good supply of one of Taiwan’s food staples. Farmers have fed leftover food to livestock for centuries, but Taiwan is one of a handful of countries that have institutionalized the practice. About two thirds of the island nation’s overall food waste, which totaled 610,000 tons last year, goes to help feed the country’s 5.5m pigs – the top meat source for the country’s 23.5 million ...

Sanitary napkin incinerators in BBMP hospitals, colleges 14.3.2016 deccanherald.com
Schools, colleges and hospitals run by the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) will soon get eco-friendly sanitary napkin incinerators fitted with activated carbon filter. Nisha Nazre, founder of Zuci Fem Care Solutions, said: "The small machine has an inbuilt activated carbon filter and a chamber with blower. Used pads can be burnt by placing them inside the machine. One napkin takes about two minutes to burn and produces less than one gram of powdered ash." Nazre conducts public awareness programmes on menstrual hygiene. She said she took the initiative after seeing municipal workers disposing napkins in unhygienic conditions and women dumping them in public spaces. It took her four years to bring out the scientific sanitary disposal system titled 'Raka hygiene care - care for the future mother'. Each unit costs Rs 10,000-80,000 depending on the capacity to dispose napkins. The machine was tested in five schools before being approved by the Palike. "By the end of June, the machine will get ...
