They understand that a sustainable approach can result in improved bottom lines, resilient communities, and healthy ecological systems.

The 2015 Transformation Awards event pre and post consumer food waste is being collected to be diverted to an anaerobic digester. After collection of the materials, they will be ground up in a Grind 2 Energy system (installed by InSinkErator). This process adds water to make roughly a 96% liquid to 4% solid mix.
Once materials are in a fluid-like state, they will be pumped into the Forest County Potawatomi Community Renewable Generation, LLC (FCPC RG) Anaerobic Digester to break down the materials, producing biogas for energy and nutrient rich bi-product that is great for horticulture applications! Remember to help do your part at the event to keep food waste out of our landfills!
