ISRAEL’S LEADING HOSPITAL SYSTEM USES BIOHITECH AMERICA’S UNIQUE SOLUTION TO DISPOSE OF FOOD WASTE

Nearly 500,000 pounds of food waste will be removed and converted into nutrientneutral water each year to help ease Israel’s increasing solid waste crisis

CHESTNUT RIDGE, NY – AUGUST 27, 2014 – BioHitech America, the most innovative and
sustainable solution to food waste removal, along with it’s Israeli Distributor Ramnoa Municipal
Services, announced an expanded relationship with Beilinson Hospital, which is part of Rabin
Medical Center, Israel’s leading hospital system. The 1,300-bed hospital system is adding an
additional BioHitech America Eco-Safe Digester for the disposal of even more food waste in a
cost-effective and environmentally-friendly way.

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.

Israel continues to face an increasing solid waste problem resulting from rapid growth in
population, industry, and consumption. The current landfill system is unsustainable and Israel is
encouraging environment friendly technologies like the Eco-Safe Digester.

“Rabin Medical Center was disposing of approximately 10,000 pounds of food waste each week
into landfills, which release harmful methane gas into the environment. Now with the Eco-Safe
Digesters, that waste is being converted into nutrient-neutral water, a resource that is
desperately needed throughout Israel,” said Koby Karako, Chief Technology Officer, Ramnoa
Municipal Services.

“Beilinson’s second installation and the additional client orders received by Ramnoa confirms
once again the demand for our product internationally and particularly in Israel and the Middle
East,” says Frank E. Celli, Chief Executive Officer, BioHitech America. “We are very pleased
with the efforts of Ramnoa Municipal and our other international distributors,”

Mr. Celli goes on to say, “Upon installation of the second unit at Beilinson Hospital, both units
will be communicating via the BioHitech Cloud. The addition of the BioHitech Cloud to both of
the hospital’s units will allow us to provide them with real-time data giving them the power to
increase profitability, enhance staff performance, report sustainable progress and even start to
prevent waste all together. In addition, we will be able to monitor productivity and support our
equipment placed by international distributors remotely from the US.”

The BioHitech Cloud, a reliable, manageable and secure reporting platform for data provides
users of the Eco-Safe Digester with real time data about their food waste that can be accessed
on many types of devices. The metrics provided by the BioHitech Cloud are providing users with
an unprecedented level of transparency that not only helps to reduce the amount of waste
generated, but improve company-wide efficiency and profitability.

“Before using the BioHitech America Solution, our food waste was being thrown into the
garbage along with everything else. It was costing a lot of resources not only in monthly fees,
but also in terms of staffing and trucking to transport the waste to landfills,” said Igal Ben-Dror,
Deputy Director of Food, Beilinson Hospital. “Now I am not only making a positive impact on the
environment but I am eliminating our food waste in a more efficient manner that is helping us
improve productivity throughout the hospital.”
