The Ritz-Carlton Collaborates with BioGreen360 and Garick to Develop a 100% Circular Solution for Food Waste
Stratham, NH and Pentagon City, VA – December 15th, 2021 – BioGreen360, the leading innovator in distributed food waste management solutions, today announced the successful completion of a six-month collaboration with The Ritz-Carlton, Pentagon City Hotel and Garick to develop a closed-loop program thatdiverts 100% of the Hotel’s food waste from landfill with the residual material being integrated into an all-natural compost product.
The collaboration was conducted at The Ritz-Carlton, Pentagon City Hotel, leveraging BioGreen360’s innovative integrated technology solution including: a waterless distributed digestor technology, proprietary bio-catalysis, an “as a service” business model and a real-time data analytics package. Since the start of the collaboration, the Pentagon City Hotel has successfully diverted 100% of its food waste totaling more than ten tons. In addition, the culinary staff at the Pentagon City Hotel have used real-time data feeds from the system to track which departments are creating waste to reduce it over time.
The organic material created through the on-site digestion process at the Pentagon City Hotel was then repurposed into an all-natural compost at Garick’s New Milford, CT facility. Through this collaborative relationship, the Pentagon City Hotel not only diverted 100% of its food waste, but now also is repurposing food that otherwise would have been wasted into a high-value, sustainable natural resource through an environmentally friendly, fully circular process.
