CO2 and Methane is produced by decomposing food in landfills, contributing to global warming
The shocking fact is, in North America, we waste 40 percent of our food! A recent study by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences finds that total emissions of the potent greenhouse gas methane are almost twice as high in North America as previously thought. More potent than carbon dioxide, methane is a deadly contributor to global warming.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all that uneaten food accounts for 23 percent of methane emissions as it rots in landfills
1 pound of food waste in landfill decomposes anaerobically into 40 pounds of CO2 equivalent
What should I do?
Truck Food Waste to areas not legislated?
Truck Food Waste to Commercial Compost Facility?
On-Site conversion from organic waste to biomass fuel!
This technology processes raw organic waste to create a solid biofuel that can be used to run a hot-water boiler. The company’s three models have a daily food waste capacity of 125 pounds, 250 pounds and 500 pounds, so Eco-Growth’s products fit any business’s needs. A patented process quickly converts raw food waste to a dry fibrous material with a high-calorific value. The process takes 12 to 24 hours to complete.
