“The Economic Report” Show to Feature BioHitech America, LLC


Allendale, NJ, November 14, 2009 --(PR.com)-- The producers of The Economic Report are pleased to announce that BioHitech America will be featured in an upcoming episode as part of the show’s Environmental Impact Series: Leading Developments in Environmental Waste Services for the 21st Century.

You've just dined out and enjoyed a spectacular meal. Not only was the food excellent, the helpings were large -- so large you couldn't finish everything on your plate. You leave with a full stomach and probably never give food left on the plate a second thought.

The restaurateur, however, does. Disposing of organic wastes is a significant environmental concern, and often a costly one. Ironically, the solution may lie in filling another type of "stomach." A high volume, industrial grade, steel "stomach" that harbors a proprietary formula of microorganisms specifically designed to biodegrade organic waste.

The GOHBio series of decomposition machines is distributed exclusively by Allendale, NJ-based BioHitech America and is designed to benefit any entity that generates a high volume of organic waste such as restaurants, supermarkets, hotels, hospitals, and other such institutions. The stainless steel digesters are energy efficient and come in three sizes, the largest of which can process 1,200 pounds of organic waste per day. Customized machines are also available to accommodate special capacity requirements and work site specifications.

Within the digesters is media composed of kiln-dried wood chips that serve as the habitat for the microorganisms. Once the parameters for optimal microorganism performance are set within the machine, all that is needed to initiate the process are the microorganisms themselves (delivered in powdered form), warm water, and a dextrose solution. Within 1 hour, the digesters are ready to begin breaking down virtually all organic food waste including meat, poultry, fish, fruit, vegetables, rice, pasta, eggshells and dairy products. The system is robust enough even to consume chicken and fish bones, and lobster shells.

All that is required to run the system is standard 220v electric, hot water, and drain hook-ups. Effluent from the system is flushed down the drain and can be treated in the same manner as standard septic or sewer waste.

The GOHBio system has revolutionized the operational logistics of managing the organic waste flow stream, ending the disposal process on site, and eliminating all traditional steps of disposal from the docking station to the landfill. With organic waste no longer needing to be hauled off site, truck traffic is reduced, saving fuel and minimizing greenhouse gases. Additionally, overall cost associated with work flow efficiencies, janitorial supplies, and general operational management of the organic waste flow stream is significantly cut.

Operating the GOHBio 1001 model at full capacity for 1 year will reduce emissions of 443,000 pounds of CO2 and 55 MTCE of greenhouse gases. That is equivalent to taking 40 cars off the road, saving 1200 gallons of diesel fuel, and planting almost 100 trees.

The entities that enlist BioHitech's system benefit from improved sanitary conditions, reduced odor on site, and a reduction in the frequency and cost of hauling their organic waste.

"Our product has undergone years of rigorous testing, so we are very excited about finally bringing our technology to market at a time when it is needed most. Our technology provides our customers with a way to actively contribute to environmental sustainability, while also providing them with significant economical benefits and improved work flow efficiencies in the process," said Frank E. Celli, CEO of BioHitech America. "It's a win-win situation for everyone, most importantly, for our global infrastructure."
