We visited the Food Education Centre in this morning (21 Sep 2013) and took a group photo.

The map of the whole Centre contained different parties which operated together.
Then we visited the food waste recycling treatment facilities. The outcome was fertilizer. Mr. Kwok said it was suitable for farming (many minerals remaining) but not suitable for feed chicken because of heating treatment reduced most of nutrients.
The treatment line was for recycle food waste & food box from secondary school. Mr. Mawin Cheung told us the plant can handle the maximum capacity for food waste to be 50 tons per day. However, more than 3,200 tons of food waste was produced from our home, commercial and industrial sectors every day!
The only solution was reduced the food waste from the source. Then we visited the production line for animal feed supplement (25kg per bag).
Some products from food waste were introduced by Mr. Mawin Cheung. All containers and bags were bio-degradable.
Moreover, some environmental facilities for education purposes were briefed included solar energy panel, wind turbine, etc.
The Easy Organic Farming demonstrated their Food Cycle concepts.
Lastly, the environmental toilet was mentioned. The hand washing machine would re-generate the electricity for toilet use.
Environmental water-less urinal can adsorb a bad smell.
