In 2011, Ecovim Users Diverted 12,000+ Tons of Food Waste From US Landfills.
Food Waste: The Next Big Effort in Sustainability
Every day, millions of tons of food waste
(from commercial kitchen and dining room
scraps) are simply bagged up and dumped
in the trash bins for destination to the
landfill. In the US alone, over 40% of landfill
content is food waste. This food will break
down and begin to emit tons of methane and
greenhouse gases into the atmosphere as it
Composting is an excellent way to utilize food waste but the problem is time. It takes weeks or months
to properly compost food waste and it takes space
and labor to correctly process this waste.
EcovimUSA provides technology which
dehydrates this food waste in hours.
The reduction in volume can be as high as 90%,
leaving only 10% of the original mass processed. The
output product is a highly concentrated organic soil
amendment which can be used in the landscape or
garden. The only other by-product is reclaimable
water which can be used in the landscape.
