ORGANIC WASTE IS a third OF U.S. landfills
Food waste is the single largest portion of the waste stream going to landfills (even larger than plastic). It also has the lowest recycling rate.
Existing landfill alternatives like aerobic composting and biogas digestion haven't been successfully scaled up to handle the quantities necessary to make an impact.
This is at odds with the growing organics recycling mandates in cities like New York, creating demand for efficient solutions that can plug in to the existing waste management infrastructure.
