BIOHITECH AMERICA ADDS TWO MORE HOSPITALS TO THEIR HEALTHCARE ROSTER

Food waste generated from 11,510 hospitals beds across the globe is being diverted from landfills by using the BioHitech America solution

CHESTNUT RIDGE, NY – December 1, 2014 – BioHitech America, the most innovative
solution to food waste removal, is adding two more hospital systems to their list of nearly two dozen
healthcare clients. Their on-site Eco-Safe Digester was recently installed at Boston
Medical Center in Boston and Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, MA.

“Hospitals around the country strive to reduce waste generated each day,” said Frank E. Celli,
CEO of BioHitech America. “Because the disposal of most of this waste requires specific
processes and in some cases regulation, the disposal of food waste has often times been
overlooked. However with upcoming legislation in specific cities and states, banning food waste
from landfills, food waste disposal is now becoming a priority.”

BioHitech America’s unique solution to food waste combines green technology with the power of
big data. 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 reliable,
manageable and secure reporting platform measures key metrics to optimize the food waste
disposal process and help eliminate food waste from the start.

The BioHitech America is currently helping hospitals across the globe manage their food waste
in an environmentally friendly and cost efficient manner. Some of the hospital system clients
include Parkland Health, Veterans Health Administration, Broward Health, Yale New Haven
Hospital, and Rabin Medical Center.

“The overall results since installing the Eco-Safe Digester have been more than we expected,
said Ken Vervoordt, Operations Manager – Food and Nutrition, Hackensack University Medical
Center. “Not only are we diverting 11 tons of food waste per month from landfills, but we have
been able to cut our waste disposal budget by 50%.”
