Aerobic Biodigestion: Keeping Food Out of the Landfill
Food waste comprises more space in landfills than anything else in the U.S. and is proven to be a major source of the most powerful greenhouse gas: methane. Alternative waste disposal methods like composting and anaerobic digestion have been gaining traction, however these methods require food waste to be transported long distances, increasing transportation emissions costs and city traffic. Aerobic biodigestion offers an economically sound solution for food waste, and is increasingly used in food service, lodging, restaurants, grocery stores, and even cruise ships. The hyperlocal technology eliminates harmful emissions associated with transportation from alternative disposal methods, and the liquid byproduct can be safely disposed of through the sewage system. This webinar will take a deep dive into food waste challenges and the technology behind aerobic biodigestion. Featured speakers include Sound Resource Management Owner Jeff Morris, Mínus Global’s Chief Strategy Officer Samer Kamal, and Boundless Impact Senior Research Analyst Fernanda Avila Swinburn.
