Food Waste Factoids
Food waste destined for landfills accounts for 30-40% of all solid waste disposal in North America.
1000 diners on average generate 400 pounds of food waste in a typical restaurant.
100 pounds of food waste in landfills sends 8 pounds of methane into the atmosphere. Methane has 86 times the global warming effect of carbon dioxide.
The contribution of food waste emissions to global warming is almost equivalent (87%) to global road transport emissions.
Wasting food is worse than total emissions from flying (1.9%), plastic production (3.8%), and oil extraction (3.8%).
Waste trucks use over 1.5 billion gallons of diesel to take food waste to North American landfills each year.
The Reasons for an On-Site Composter
Estimates suggest the world’s total food waste is around 1.3 billion tonnes. These losses occur at all stages of production, from pre-harvest on the farm through to post-harvest losses during processing, distribution, retailing and consumption.
The vast majority of this food waste is produced at the point of consumption, whether it is in cafeterias, canteens, or restaurants. Some of this waste can be avoided, but some is unavoidable because it consists of non-edible portions of the product.
The process of composting food with a food waste digester/composter machine has been developed as a result of a better understanding of the origins and fates of unconsumed food, with prevention as the primary goal and only material that is inappropriate for human or animal consumption becoming garbage.
Our BMD food composter composts food waste on-site in 24 hours with no odour or noise. It significantly reduces the cost to dispose of and manage waste food. It also eliminates smells, mess, and pests from your waste bins.
By using the food digester, you are reducing the amount of space and energy needed to remove the unwanted food scraps from your facility. It doesn’t need collecting, transporting, or piling up in a landfill.
