Globally, 1.4 billion tons of edible material—or one-third of the world’s food production—is wasted each year. In Nigeria, 7.5 million tons of wastes were generated in the most recent study on food waste, and each person produced roughly 1370 kg of waste annually. Food waste increases as a result of the world population’s rapid growth throughout the years. To meet population demand and avoid food waste, the variety of foods should be increased. Food waste is solely handled in Nigeria by being dumped straight into landfills, which causes the release of landfill gas and contributes to global warming. The goal of the study was to conduct qualitative and quantitative analysis on the synthesis of organic fertilizer from anaerobic digestion of food waste. The project’s goal is to determine the proportion of phosphate, ammonium, as well as nitrate in various types of organic fertilizer made from the preservative rice bran (BR); cucumber, dairy, bread, tea bags, orange, eggs, and bitter leaves (BC); yam, water leaf, onion, coffee grinds, wild lettuce, banana (BY); and effective microorganisms (IMOs) (BI) using the bokashi method; and to study the generation and consumption of these nutrients.
