Improving Cruise Ship Environmental Impact

Food Waste Reduction

Food Waste Reduction at Sea

The Cruise Line Industry is constantly facing environmental and sustainability challenges. Emitting three to four times as much CO2 per passenger-mile as an commercial airplanes , cruise ships need to find new and sustainable ways to reduce their impact on the environment.

The time and cost associated with the removal of waste from ships at port has a considerable impact operating costs and performance, while creating less than favorable work environments

The Revolution Series Digester helps Cruise Ships manage commercial food waste with real-time data and analytics. As they process kitchen waste on site, Revolution Series Digesters measure the amount that they digest and generate accurate, easy-to-understand statistics. Resulting in optimized supply costs through data-informed purchases. Our cost-effective digesters enable you to divert food waste from landfills and improve your sustainability initiatives.

Use Data Analytics to Manage Commercial Food Waste

Tap into the power of BioHiTech Cloud® to understand how your business handles food waste. Every Revolution Digester connects to the BioHiTech Cloud, a platform that measures its performance. The BioHiTech Cloud shows the amount of food waste you process every day in real time to help you optimize your kitchen waste disposal.

Optimize Supply Purchasing

By tracking your supply purchasing alongside BioHiTech Cloud® data, you can focus on buying items that lead to less waste. Note the types of food that you use each day, then compare that information to data in the BioHiTech Cloud.


Plan Menus Around Food Waste Reduction

With a Revolution Digester, you can create and revise menus based on your food waste habits. Days and meal times that result in higher digestion rates could indicate a menu that generates more waste. With this insight in the BioHiTech Cloud, you can formulate a menu that focuses on food that will be used.


Serve Food That Your Customers Will Eat

Your digester data can help you determine which foods on your menu succeed more than others. If you offer a special on a certain day and you notice more food waste, your customers may not prefer that menu option. With careful data monitoring and trial and error, you can work towards serving more food that your customers will enjoy.


Create Goals for Food Waste Diversion

If you have multiple restaurants, you can compare the amount of food waste they generate through BioHiTech Cloud. Use this information to set benchmarks for each location that encourage food waste reduction.
