A recent EPA sponsored report found that of the 251 million tons of solid waste collected in the United States each year, 31 million tons of it is food waste. Shockingly, only 2.4% of food waste is recovered for recycling. However, now there is an innovative way to dispose of this organic refuse – by recycling it into environmentally safe water effluent.
Green Key Environmental Solutions, a Florida-based company is providing facilities in Palm Beach County and elsewhere with the means to achieve that goal with its revolutionary Green Key Bio-Digestor. The unit, which works like a compost plant that fits directly into your kitchen, decomposes organic waste on site using GK BioZyme, a patented blend of non-pathogenic micro-organisms commonly found in nature.
This alternative organic waste management solution offers multiple benefits:
· It reduces waste collection costs and hauling expenses by eliminating heavy food waste from your waste containers.
· It diverts waste from landfills.
· It cuts down on sludge build-up in drain pipes.
· It eliminates offensive odors and pests associated with decomposing food.
· It helps to maintain a sanitary work environment.
· It decreases your business’ carbon footprint with onsite disposal.
With its patented mixture of microbes and enzymes, the user-friendly Green Key Bio-Digestor can decompose nearly all food waste materials within 24 hours. That includes everything from bread, pasta and rice (within two hours) to meat and fish (within 3 hours); shrimp shells, egg shells, crustaceans and vegetable stems (within 13 -18 hours); and fish bones, small shells and onion peels (within 21-23 hours). The by-product is an environmentally responsible grey water that can either be disposed down the drain or contained and used as a soil amendment.
Currently, the Bio-Digestor is in use at various hotels, restaurants and other food service facilities worldwide including many businesses in Palm Beach County and South Florida such as the Marriott, Ritz Carlton Hotels, Golden Coral Buffett and Grill, Outback Steakhouse, the University of South Florida, and many more. It’s also great for any facility with its own employee cafeteria.
