BioHitech America

BioHitech America is the leading provider of a disruptive and innovative technology designed to solve the increasingly relevant issue of food waste disposal while offering transparency, savings and the means to a sustainable future.

With approximately 1.3 billion tons of food wasted each year and over 97 percent being sent to landfills, food waste is a serious issue that has detrimental environmental and economic implication.  The company’s Eco-Safe Digester, an on-site aerobic digester, eliminates up to 2,400 pounds of food waste in a 24-hour period by utilizing mechanical and biological treatments to convert food waste into a liquid that is safely discharged through standard sewers. During the process, the digester weighs each increment of waste and allows users to quantify its type and origin. These metrics are providing the industry with an unprecedented level of transparency that not only helps to reduce the amount of waste generated but improve company-wide efficiency and profitability.
