BioHiTech America collaborates to convert food waste to energy

BioHiTech Global Inc., a green technology company that provides an innovative data-driven solution for food waste disposal, announced that its subsidiary, BioHiTech America, has partnered with Natural Systems Utilities, Ridgewood Green RME and the village of Ridgewood, New Jersey, to test a process that will allow BioHiTech's Eco-Safe Digester to digest, tank, and deliver the effluent from its Eco-Safe Digesters to anaerobic digestion (AD) facilities anywhere in the world.

BioHiTech's Eco-Safe Digester utilizes an aerobic digestion process to convert food waste to grey water, also referred to as effluent. Typically the effluent is discharged safely into the sewage system and individual wastewater treatment facilities to treat it with other sanitary waste. This new process will tank the unit's effluent allowing for transportation to an anaerobic digestion plant where biogas can be captured and used to create renewable energy.
