Selected publications will be considered for the Special Issue “Food Waste Prevention: Reduction, Reuse and Recycling”, now open in RESOURCES (MDPI), which is guest edited by Prof. Konstadinos Abeliotis and Prof. Katia Lasaridi.

This Special Issue focuses on Food Waste Prevention, Reduction, Reuse, and Recycling. Food waste prevention via food donation and redistribution is among the top priorities set by the food waste management hierarchy and it is included among this millenium’s sustainable development goals. Moreover, technological progress in valorisation pathways for specific components of food waste, including novel or significantly improved processes, such as feed from food or bioplastics production, and progress in management procedures are also relevant in this context. Studies reporting on synergies between sectors or individual entities are particularly welcome.
