Here’s how a Grind2Energy system works:
- - The Grind2Energy system grinds up food scraps as fast as you can feed it.
- - The food waste slurry is stored in a sealed tank onsite which is regularly emptied and the slurry transported to a wastewater treatment plant or other facility equipped with anaerobic digestion technology.
- - With anaerobic digestion, the biogas can be captured as renewable energy, and the leftover solids treated and used as fertilizer. The biogas can be used to produce electricity or to power vehicles.
The Grind2Energy system makes food waste cleanup easier, improves hygiene, reduces odor and pest problems, lowers waste disposal costs, and recycles food waste into energy.
The Grind2Energy system is currently in use on The Ohio State University campus in Columbus, Ohio. The renewable energy produced from food waste recycled through the Grind2Energy system has generated roughly $4,000 in savings per year for the university’s Blackwell Inn and Conference Center. The system is also in use at the FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland, home of the Cleveland Browns.
