The Federal Bureau Of Prisons Puts An End To Hauling Food Waste With BioHitech America's Eco-Safe Digester

The United States Federal Government reduces solid waste hauling to support their environmental initiatives, locks down big savings and creates hundreds of “green” jobs with the Eco-Safe Digester.

Eco-Safe Digester

The United States Federal Government inks a deal with VetUS (dba) to deploy seventy-six (76) BioHitech Eco-Safe Digesters stateside before the end of January 2013. Seventy-six federally purchased units set for deployment in 120 days in addition to the numerous machines installed this year to hotels, supermarkets and restaurants helps BioHitech America achieve their 2012 goals in helping businesses to reduce pollution, reuse their resources and help reclaim landfill space.

The US Government didn’t waste much time making their intentions very clear, food waste will no longer be hauled to landfills. In a letter posted by the US Department of Justice to the regional food service administrators within the Federal Bureau of Prisons they state “the addition of this equipment will support our environmental initiatives by reducing solid waste hauling and land-fill use which will in turn reduce fuel and emissions as well as odor and pest issues associated with outside containers.”

This bold move will better the environment by diverting more than 50 million pounds of food waste in one year. The training of inmates on the use of the Eco-Safe Digester platform will not only create temporary jobs during periods of incarceration but will also educate them in a growing profession for later use. The digesters will deliver measurable cost savings at each facility, resultantly freeing up valuable capital that can be re-purposed for other projects. The Eco-Safe Digester is a triple threat and delivers a triple bottom line. Planet, People, Profit.

Putting food waste into the digester eliminates the local trucking of heavy, soggy trash, and keeps it from ending up in landfills, where it decomposes and produces methane, a greenhouse gas 21 times more potent than carbon dioxide. Food waste digesters allow food to be rapidly decomposed and safely flushed down the drain to the wastewater system which is designed to convert the waste into clean water, beneficial biogas energy, and fertilizer.
