BioHiTech Helps Dunkin’ Donuts Divert Food Waste from Landfills

BioHitechBioHiTech America is installing its commercial food waste disposal system at a second Dunkin’ Donuts location in New Jersey, which will help the restaurant divert food waste from landfills and save money on waste management.

BioHiTech’s system will divert all of the store’s coffee grounds and other food waste through its Eco-Safe Digester by converting the waste into grey water and safely transporting it through the standard sewer lines.

There is not only less waste going to landfills, but each Dunkin’ Donuts location can save money in reduced hauling fees since there is less waste to be picked up, reduce labor costs from eliminating the repetitive trips to the dumpster, and reduce services associated with pest control.

As food waste and coffee grounds are added to the Eco-Safe Digester each increment is measured and tracked in real-time through the BioHiTech Cloud. The BioHiTech Cloud measures operation, economic and environmental metrics allowing organizations like Dunkin’ Donuts to report their diversion numbers to their corporate office in support of the company’s DD Green Achievement goals of building 100 sustainable restaurants by the end of 2016.

With the addition of the second franchised location, the first DD Green Elite location in New Jersey, stores that use the Eco-Safe Digester can potentially eliminate enough carbon emissions to serve an additional 1 million cups of coffee without impacting the environment.

  1. While I understand that diversion is a huge benefit here, the story does not say if the material is going to a wastewater treatment plant that digests the effluent into a useable energy product to close the gap in the circular use of biogas to fully make this a sustainable option.

  2. Good to hear…How was Eco Safe Digester defined as Ecological? What additives, enzymes or microbes are used to digest the food waste and what is the pH, BOD, TSS, levels in the digested waste water? How much water is used in this process each day? What amount of waste water is generated each day?
