Abstract

The goal of this IQP was to find a sustainable approach to improve Worcester Polytechnic Institute's food waste management. We explored the current disposal methods used by WPI’s food service provider and solutions implemented at other institutions. From our findings we concluded that the addition of composting to WPI's current system would divert more food and organic waste from its waste stream and function as a backup if the current system ever experiences difficulties.
