BioHiTech Global Receives Initial Multi-Unit Order for Its New Sapling Food Waste Digester from a Regional Grocery Chain in the Northeast US

  • Company to install Sapling Digesters at six locations and expects to roll out additional units throughout this customer’s 19 locations in three states
  • Each Sapling Digester is capable of diverting from landfills as much as 800 pounds of food waste per day


Chestnut Ridge, NY – May 9, 2019 – BioHiTech Global, Inc. (NASDAQ: BHTG) (“BioHiTech” or the “Company”), a technology and services company that provides cost-effective and sustainable waste management solutions, today announced that it has received an initial multi-unit product order for its new BioHiTech Saplingâ food waste digester from a regional grocery chain operating 19 locations in three Northeastern states.


The Sapling Digester is a larger capacity addition to BioHiTech’s line of Revolution Series™ Digesters. The Revolution Series of Digesters provide a cost-effective, regulatory-compliant food waste disposal solution that aligns well with the sustainability vision of today’s businesses. BioHiTech’s Digester technology safely disposes food waste on-site, eliminating hauling costs and reducing pest-related issues typically associated with traditional disposal methods. Each Sapling Digester is capable of diverting up to 800 pounds per day or 146 tons from landfills each year. The six Sapling units to be installed at these grocery locations, are capable of diverting from landfills as much as 1,750,000 pounds of food waste each year. The elimination of waste transportation would result in a reduction of CO2 emissions by the equivalent of removing over 120 trucks from the road.


Additionally, BioHiTech’s Digester technology provides valuable real-time data analytics through the BioHiTech Cloudâ that will enable food waste diversion tracking and potentially find areas to reduce food waste generation. This data transparency allows organizations to educate staff and the community about the real impact of food waste diversion programs by embedding accurate, real-time data into company newsletters, onto their consumer-facing websites and digital signage platforms.
