Global Annual Meeting Discusses How Green Tech Is Innovating The Food Industry

BioHitech America’s European Partner Rounds Out The Presentations At The World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting

Chestnut Ridge, NY – January 29, 2015 – BioHitech America, a green technology
company that provides an innovative data-driven solution for food waste removal, is
proud to announce that its partner, GreenComm Environmental Ltd., was invited to
present the Eco-Safe Digester solution at The World Economic Forum’s Annual
Meeting, which was held January 21st through 25th in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland.

The World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting is the world’s leading platform for
strategic insights into the future evolution of industry ecosystems and business models,
particularly in the context of scientific, technological and policy innovations. The Annual
Meeting convenes global leaders from across business, government, international
organizations, academia and civil society for strategic dialogues that map the key
transformations reshaping the world. This year’s theme, “The New Global Context”,
featured four big narratives including Society and Security, Innovation and Industry,
Crisis and Cooperation, and Growth and Stability.

“Our green technology solution showcased during the Annual Meeting is once again
confirmation that the method of which food waste is handled impacts our society in
many different ways and that an alternative “cloud-based” solution enabling the
collection of waste data at the point of generation is a more sustainable way to address
the long term challenge of food waste disposal across the globe,” said Frank E. Celli,
Chief Executive Officer, BioHitech America.

During the Annual Meeting, Professor Francesco de Leo, Ph.D., Executive Chairman,
Kaufmann Partners, illustrated the significance of food waste and how technology
presents new opportunities, during this presentation entitled “Why Sustainability
Matters: The challenge of reducing food waste in the world; Why a New Generation of
Green Tech Breakthroughs is Igniting a Wave of Innovation Across the Food
Distribution Industry. The presentation was co-authored by Professor de Leo and
Rupert Galliers-Pratt, Founder, Director and Principal Shareholder of GreenComm
Environmental Ltd.

“The reduction of food waste is a key objective for regulators across Europe and for
European Companies that are engaged in the food industry,' said Rupert Galliers-Pratt.
It was important in our report to be able to describe the Eco-Safe technology as it
provides an economic solution for European Companies to process food waste on-site,
reduce carbon emissions and gather key statistical information that permits
management to reduce waste, improve hygiene and take trucks off the road. This is one
of the few sustainable technologies that does not require taxpayer subsidies to create
an environmental and economic benefit for the food industry in Europe.”

About BioHitech America
BioHitech America’s unique solution to food waste combines green technology with the power of
Big Data to offer transparency, savings and a sustainable future. The company’s Eco-Safe
Digester, an on-site aerobic digester, eliminates up to 2,400 pounds of food waste in a 24-hour
period by converting it into nutrient-neutral water and transporting the water safely through
standard sewer lines. The BioHitech Cloud, a technology platform hosted by Amazon, measures
key metrics to optimize the food waste disposal process. These metrics are providing the
industry with an unprecedented level of transparency that not only helps to reduce the amount
of waste generated, but also improve company-wide efficiency and profitability.
