Hitachi Zosen INOVA to Convert City of San Luis Obispo's Food Waste into Renewable Energy

The City of San Luis Obispo just relaunched it’s food scraps program.

It’s because people throw out food every day that could be used for other purposes.

“It was eye-opening when we started using the green bins how much food waste the restaurant goes through on a daily basis,” said Michael Avila, Novo Restaurant Executive Chef.

Just because it doesn’t taste good, doesn’t mean it can’t be put to good use.

Workers at Novo Restaurant in San Luis Obispo throw food scraps in their green bins.

It’s part of a citywide initiative to go green.
