In the food industry in the Netherlands many different types of waste areproduced. A large part of those wastes comprise of organic materials with a high calorific value and therefore appropriate to be used as a fuel for energy production. However, the quantities, the composition and the present market value of the wastes and residues are not known enough to be able to estimate accurately their potential contribution to the energy supply. The aim of the title survey is to provide the information and data to estimate that contribution. In the title study the focus is on solid wastes for gasification. The overall conclusion is that the quantities and the present usage of the different waste flows are difficult to retrieve. Many information sources are based on outdated data. 5 tabs., 17 refs.
