Smart System Provides Green Solution for Food Waste Removal - BioHitech America - Facility Management Product Release
BioHitech America, a green technology company that provides an innovative data-driven solution for food waste removal, is continuing to see tremendous expansion across the globe as digestion becomes a widely accepted alternative to composting for recycling organic waste.
“Traditional waste prevention is not only harmful to the environment, but it is also costly and cumbersome,” says Frank E. Celli, Chief Executive Officer, BioHitech America. “While new alternatives for waste removal are becoming more prevalent, the real key is using innovative technology and solutions to prevent the waste.”
The BioHitech America solution combines on-site removal technology with Big Data to not only divert the waste but to help businesses understand what is being wasted and how to eliminate it. The company’s Eco-Safe Digester is an on-site aerobic digester that eliminates food waste by converting it into nutrient-neutral water or gray water and transporting it through standard sewer lines. The Eco-Safe Digester is equipped with an on board scale that weighs food waste each time it is added, determining where, when, and what food waste is being disposed. The BioHitech Cloud, a technology platform hosted by Amazon, measures key metrics to offer businesses the data needed to optimize the food waste disposal process and identify the way to prevent it altogether.
BioHitech America currently provides its innovative solution to numerous high volume generators in various industries in nearly 300 locations across the globe. Their solutions have helped reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills while also helping business owners and operators adjust seamlessly to similar bans that have been put into effect. BioHitech America recently announced BioHitech Europe, with headquarters in London, to further the global expansion of the company’s disruptive and innovative commercial food waste disposal solution.
“Companies in all industries have the potential for increased profitability, efficiency, and reduced environmental impact when they make the decision to start preventing their waste,” Celli says.
