    Aerobic Digestion – Manage Food Waste with Case Studies by Montefiore Health and Boston Medical Center

    For part four of the five-part series, Join Montefiore Health, business Partner EnviroPure Systems and Boston Medical Center to learn how to capture and manage food waste through on-site digestion process for reduced costs and diversion from landfills. Montefiore Health will share the process of implementation and how onsite management was the right choice for their urban environment.

    Boston Medical Center has chosen to utilize a biodigester based on the challenging logistics of composting in an urban environment. The biodigester has been a huge success at BMC for several reasons.

    1. Monitors food waste remotely and feeds it to a robust dashboard for easy retrieval of data.
    2. Handling is simple, no solids generated, converts food waste into a liquid that can safely be flushed down the drain.
    3. Several economic advantages: Reduces hauling costs, reduces janitorial supply costs, reduced labor costs.
    4. Environmental transformation: lowers carbon emissions due to less truck traffic and landfilling, reduces harmful greenhouse gases that contribute to global climate change, recycles food waste into renewable resources (clean water, biogas, biosolids)

    Other advantages vs. traditional composting:

    No odor or pest, documents diversion process, no vehicle service access necessary, takes up small footprint in the kitchen.

    Current results:

    Boston Medical Center has diverted 26.5 tons of food waste in one year.

    Learning Objectives

    • Understand why diverting food from the municipal waste stream is a core component of any sustainability program.
    • Recognize the legal framework for installing a digestion system onsite
    • Hear how Montefiore Health measured success around onsite aerobic digestion of their food waste.
    • Take away tips for managing food waste at your facility.
