PDP has the ability to end all greenhouse gas emissions emitted from landfilled food waste. Food waste is among the top three contributors of greenhouse gas emissions across the world. This isn’t just the food waste we scrape off the plate into the garbage can after a big meal, but rather the 40-60% of the inedible waste that comes from animals raised for human consumption. While materials such as vegetables and starches can be easily composted, it can take months, if not years, for an animal carcass to decompose naturally. Technologies such as rendering can repurpose some parts of the animal by separating fats, proteins, and other usable components, but this method is time consuming, energy intensive, and still creates waste, while PDP is fast, it is energy efficient, and it generates no waste. In addition, PDP generates biological heat that eliminates pathogens to make the resulting fertilizers ‘food safe’, and the small amount of energy used to run the PDP equipment is generated by solar panels.
