Expansion of Food Waste Separation in NYC
The New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY) recently published a proposed rule that aims to expand organic waste source separation. According to the proposal, food scraps and other organic waste make up more than one-third of all commercial waste in NYC. “Diverting this material from landfills to use for soil enhancing compost, or as an energy source in aerobic and anaerobic digesters, is a key component of the city’s goal of sending zero waste to landfills by the year 2030,” said the DSNY in the proposal. The MicroboxBio is a great solution to treat raw gas from the anaerobic digesters.
