Food Waste Recycling, Waste Reduction
and Land fill Diversion
– Reduces Food Waste Volume By 90%
– Diverts 100% Of Food Waste From Local Landfill
– Reduces Waste Removal Costs
– Contributes To Reduction Of CO2 and Other Greenhouse Gases (GHG)
– Augments LEED Accreditations!
– Per US Green Building Council’s (13) Characteristics of a Green School –

– Reduces & Converts Food Waster Into Reusable Nitrogen Rich Biomass
Community Gardens, Urban Farms, or Composting Programs
– Fosters Environmental Education and Awareness
More than 36 million tons of food waste is generated, with only five percent diverted from landfills and incinerators for communal composting. Compost Accelerator CA-Series provies up to 90% on-site reduction of food waste volume, creating a stabilized nitrogen rich biomass – making it 100% reusable. The process provides rapid break down reducing, volume and weight of the food waste which, reduces operational costs. The nitrogen rich dehydrated biomass can be resed in *gardens, urbanfarms, organic farms, nurseries, or as a nitrogen rich feed stock for compost programs. ETL Listed to UL 499
(*) Any soils application of nitrogen biomass requires prior soil analysis to determine proper percentages, soil ph levels, etc.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, food waste is the single-largest component of the Municipal Solid Waste stream by weight in the United States. Food waste includes uneaten food and food preparation scraps from residences or households, commercial establishments like restaurants, institutional sources like school cafeterias and industrial sources like factory lunchrooms. With over 97% of food waste ending up in landfills.
The Environmental Impact
The anaerobic decomposition of food and other organic waste in landfills produces methane (CH4) which is a greenhouse gas 21 times more damaging to the environment than carbon dioxide (C02). According to the U.S. EPA, landfills are the third largest human-related source of methane in the United States, accounting for 18% of all methane emissions.
