The past two weeks we have been busy at work launching our pilot mode. In that time, we have already collected and diverted 2,000 tons of food waste from our pilot participants. This has included liquid manufacturing waste, solid organic waste from restaurants and grocery stores, and bottled and canned food waste. So far all of the depackaging machines and the degrit machine are working perfectly!
In the coming weeks we will be balancing the pH and “seeding” the digester tanks with a healthy established microorganism colony that will grow and continue to break down food waste once we are fully operational.
As more companies from around the valley we are getting closer to filling the two 2.5 million-gallon digesters. Explore our website to find out who is participating or sign your business up to divert food waste.
