We are pleased to announce that Mechline Developments Ltd. has been awarded GreenCircle certification by GreenCircle Certified, LLC (GreenCircle) for the Waste-2-Go food waste bio-digester at Rider University in Lawrence Township, New Jersey. GreenCircle is a leading provider of third-party certification of environmental claims.
Ian Blakeman, Commercial Director of Export at Mechline: “It’s a really exciting time for the Waste-2-Go, we are really pleased that our product has been recognised for its sustainable performance.”
“We believe that the GreenCircle certification validates our on-going commitment to food waste reduction, energy efficiency and carbon reduction in the US. As a result of hard work and engineering we are thrilled to be the first food waste bio-digester to undergo this type of case study validation.”
In the analysis, the Waste-2-Go machine digested up to 400 lbs of organic food waste to waste water over a 24-hour period. The Waste-2-Go machine is an operationally friendly machine that provided a 39% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions as compared to the landfilling options at Rider University.
The GreenCircle certification is based on a 2015 case study of the Waste-2-Go machine located at Rider University in Lawrence Township, New Jersey. The Waste-2-Go machine used in this analysis is used in a cafeteria and a restaurant setting within an education institution which feeds over 67,000 students at the University. The case study audited and verified the energy and water usage per pound of waste processed by the Waste-2-Go Bio-Digester.
“GreenCircle is excited to have completed such a unique and exciting case study for Mechline Developments Ltd! There is a large opportunity for organizations that generate food waste to reduce the amount of material going to landfill and in turn reduce their carbon footprint” says Annie Bevan, Certification and Operations Manager.
