The Eco-Safe Digester is one of the few sustainable technologies that does not require taxpayer subsidies to create an environmental and economic benefit for the food industry in Europe.

BioHitech America, a green technology company that provides an innovative data-driven solution for food waste removal, is proud to announce that its partner, GrennComm Environmental Ltd., was invited to present the Eco-Safe Digester solution at The World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting, which was held January 21st through 25th in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland.

The World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting is the world’s leading platform for strategic insights into the future evolution of industry ecosystems and business models, particularly in the context of scientific, technological and policy innovations. The Annual Meeting convenes global leaders from across business, government, international organizations, academia and civil society for strategic dialogues that map the key transformations reshaping the world. This year’s theme, “The New Global Context”, featured four big narratives including Society and Security, Innovation and Industry, Crisis and Cooperation, and Growth and Stability.

“Our green technology solution showcased during the Annual Meeting is once again confirmation that the method of which food waste is handled impacts our society in many different ways and that an alternative “cloud-based” solution enabling the collection of waste data at the point of generation is a more sustainable way to address the long term challenge of food waste disposal across the globe,” said Frank E. Celli, Chief Executive Officer, BioHitech America.

During the Annual Meeting, Professor Francesco de Leo, Ph.D., Executive Chairman, Kaufmann Partners, illustrated the significance of food waste and how technology presents new opportunities, during this presentation entitled “Why Sustainability Matters: The challenge of reducing food waste in the world; Why a New Generation of Green Tech Breakthroughs is Igniting a Wave of Innovation Across the Food Distribution Industry. The presentation was co-authored by Professor de Leo and Rupert Galliers-Pratt, Founder, Director and Principal Shareholder of GreenComm Environmental Ltd.

“The reduction of food waste is a key objective for regulators across Europe and for European Companies that are engaged in the food industry,' said Rupert Galliers-Pratt. It was important in our report to be able to describe the Eco-Safe technology as it provides an economic solution for European Companies to process food waste on-site, reduce carbon emissions and gather key statistical information that permits management to reduce waste, improve hygiene and take trucks off the road. This is one of the few sustainable technologies that does not require taxpayer subsidies to create an environmental and economic benefit for the food industry in Europe.”
