Food Waste Reduction
Mitigating Health Risks and Food Waste Across the Restaurant Industry
Restaurants are facing new challenges when it comes to health and sanitation. Having been linked to the spread of COVID-19, they will need to incorporate intense safety measures to minimize health risks. When it comes to their environmental impact, this is also a glaring issue. The U.S. spends over $218 billion growing, processing, transporting, and disposing of uneaten food. The restaurant industry generates 11.4 million tons of food waste annually, which greatly contributes to that number. This trend costs the sector more than $25 billion each year. Our suite of solutions was built to tackle these complex problems.
We are committed to solutions that have a positive environmental impact.
Help Your Restaurant Reduce Food Waste and Save Money
The restaurant industry has an undeniable impact on the environment through food waste. Though the numbers are staggering, there is an immense opportunity to reduce business costs, increase customer savings, and achieve significant environmental benefits. Just think, restaurants’ benefit-to-cost ratio for every dollar invested in food waste reduction can yield a cost savings of $8!
Divert your food waste from landfills
The BioHiTech food digester processes food waste on site using a combination of microorganisms, oxygen and warm water to digest it into a liquid called that drains into your wastewater line diverting it from landfill.
Plan patron menus around food waste reduction
With a Revolution Digester, you can create and revise menus based on your patrons’ food waste habits. Your digester data can help you determine which foods on your menu succeed more than others.
Reduced waste management costs
The Revolution Series enables restaurants to reduce the costs of disposing food waste at landfills. By eliminating food waste on site, you will have less waste that needs to be transported which will decrease hauling costs.
Optimize supply purchasing
By tracking your supply purchasing alongside BioHiTech Cloud® data, you can focus on buying less items that lead to that waste.
Set benchmarks for Waste Diversion
The BioHiTech Cloud measures the amount of food waste you digest and can compare those results against multiple digesters in various locations. If you have multiple restaurants, you can set goals for the percentage of waste that they digest. These benchmarks encourage every digester user to optimize their food waste management process.
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® gives you access to information about the food waste you process every day in real time, helping you optimize your kitchen waste disposal.

Mitigating Health Rists and Food Waste Across the Healthcare Industry
The restaurant industry has been severely impacted by the worldwide pandemic. Restaurants will need to implement new protocols to ensure the health and safety of their business. By introducing our Altapure AP-4™ into these safety measures, restaurant owners can rest assured that they are protecting their staff and patrons while reducing the spread of COVID-19, viruses, and other harmful bacteria.
Rapid complete kill of pathogens
The Altapure AP-4™ technology delivers a complete elimination of viruses, bacteria, and bacterial spores, in less than 10 minutes of exposure. Treated surfaces have been clinically proven to show “no growth” for bacterial spores, vegetative bacteria, and viruses.
The AP-4 ™ is remotely operated using a small and lightweight, hand held “Control Tablet” that is touch screen activated. It communicates via a wireless connection with one or more AP-4 ™ machines and ancillary devices. The wireless Control Tablet is approved for use in all medical, industrial, and scientific environments.
Low cost of ownership
We require no capital investment or upfront costs for the use of the Altapure AP-4™.
Compact and wireless
It is a single compact unit (aerosol generator + vapor removal system) and has complete coverage accuracy leaving no human interaction required.
Altapure’s process delivers a complete elimination of viruses, bacteria, and bacterial spores, in less than 10 minutes of exposure. The Altapure AP-4™ provides a high-level disinfectant technology for use against bacteria and viruses such as Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Our environmentally friendly technologies help protect and meet the demanding needs of health and safety at scale.
Reduce your carbon footprint by turning waste into renewable energy
We provide a proven, cost-effective, and clean alternative to landfills for the disposal of solid waste throughout the U.S. The High Efficiency Biological Treatment (HEBioT™) process utilizes a combination of automated sorting equipment, enhanced biological composting, and mechanical refinement to convert waste into an EPA recognized, clean alternative fuel while achieving as much as 80% landfill diversion.
- Reduce your carbon footprint
- Promote your sustainable waste management plan
Waste that would otherwise be landfilled is converted into a sustainable fuel partially replacing the use of fossil fuels which can preserve our natural resources and reduce the harmful emissions to the environment.
