Food Waste Grinders for Organics
Government agencies around the world are enacting new restrictions on the disposal of food waste. Food and other organic waste disposed of in landfills produce methane, a greenhouse gas, as it decomposes. The amount of food waste has been increasing dramatically over the last several decades and some estimates indicate that as much as 40% of food in the U.S. is thrown away. Composting or using food and other organic waste as feedstock for an anaerobic digester are two of the common alternatives to landfill. Both methods require food waste grinders to precondition the organic waste materials to make the processes more efficient.
