We are making food waste smarter

Life Cycle Assessment of BioHiTech Digester for Food Waste Management

In 2015, the University of Delaware installed two BioHiTech digesters in their new, state-of-the-art dining common. Building on this initiative, the goal of this project was to evaluate the environmental impact of BioHiTech’s digester system for diverting food waste from a landfill and then releasing the effluent into the sewer for further processing in a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP)

To achieve the project goal, a life cycle assessment (LCA) was conducted in accordance with the ISO 14040 standards to enable a gate-to-grave comparative assessment of four potential food waste management pathways.
