In a recent article published by Forbes, the Eco-Safe Digester, a revolutionary waste disposal machine offered by American Waste & Recycling Equipment, LLC, was recognized as one of the top innovative devices in the world of food waste disposal.

More than 34 million tons of food waste ends up in landfills every year, according to the United Nations Environment Program, and that waste, in turn, is leading to the release of harmful methane gas that damages the environment.


Let us show you why the EcoSafe Digester is the future of food waste solutions.

In an effort to deal with all this waste in a more eco-friendly manner, and also due to consumer demand and regulatory pressure, businesses have begun to more closely monitor solutions that help them prevent the creation of food waste and the destination of their waste output.

From the article:

“The EcoSafe Digester is a machine made by BioHitech America. It’s an aerobic, on-site digester for food waste disposal. The company claims it diverts more than 70 million pounds of food waste from landfills every year, and prevents more than 25 million metric tons of carbon per year. It can digest between 800 and 2400 pounds of food waste per day, and can basically digest anything but bones, shells, husks, and bread dough.”

For businesses looking to reduce the size of their carbon footprint and purchase an Eco-Safe Digester, the process is actually quite simple. The Eco-Safe Digester output does not contain any harmful chemicals and is discharged into the public sewerage system, so there is no requirement to obtain approval from any environment agencies or local water authorities. As for installation, the machine requires a hot and cold water supply, 208V – 30 amp – 3 phase electricity, and a 3″ to 4″ floor drain. Then, once the plumbing and electrical roughing are completed by the customer, installation can usually be completed in one day.

In addition to the environmental benefits, there are also numerous other reasons why a business would benefit from the Eco-Safe Digester, including:

  • Reduces hauling costs by reducing waste volume and collection frequency
  • Improves efficiency and workflow
  • Captures a valuable resource
  • Replenishes water supplies
  • Eliminates the transportation of food waste to landfills or distant compost facilities
  • Eliminates compactor odors
  • Reduces janitorial costs
  • Prevents pollution and much more

What makes the Eco-Safe Digest really stand out among its competitors, however, is a smart system linked to BioHitech’s cloud (Biobrain) that adds intelligence to the mechanical work. That’s right, in addition to the obvious monetary and environmental benefits, Eco-Safe Digester also works to identify the trends and inefficiencies within businesses that leads to waste. This allows customers to not only understand the historical patterns of food waste, but also gives them the information they need to take steps to avoid it in the first place.

With these analytical tools, technicians can view and track information about digestion rates, utility usage, hours of operation, maintenance issues and other features of the digester’s work. If problems arise, such as interruption of digestion or any other anomalies, a real time notification system allows BioHitech to respond quickly.

In addition to being a more green solution to waste, the Eco-Safe Digester also serves as a way for businesses to back their claims on compliance with waste disposal regulations and publicize their environmental efforts in order to boost their ever-important green credentials within the local community.
