Industrial food waste has been a burden for every sector involved: concentrated animal feeding operations, food processors, local waste collectors, and above all – our environment.
Nearly 60% of most animals raised for human consumption is waste.
That waste is a top contributor of greenhouse gas emissions.
When this food waste decomposes anaerobically in a landfill, it emits ozone destroying gases such as methane and carbon dioxide. Unfortunately, most of the gas emitted from this waste is methane, which is 25 times more destructive to the ozone layer than carbon dioxide (EPA, 2018).
So... What Now?
Traditional agriculture practices have depleted our soils of organic matter, and farmers are continuously looking for new ways to replenish their soil with organics and microbial life.
The Progressive Digestion Process is the most energy efficient technology available today that can handle every part of the animal and convert it into something beneficial for our planet.
This process is done in a fully solar powered facility in the heart of Salinas Valley, California.
