BioStar is diverting pre-consumer food waste from landfills and
turning it into renewable energy and organic fertilizer.

THE PROBLEM

In 2017, the US generated
+ Million
tons of Municipal Solid Waste
%

represents organic materials

%

of all food is wasted, which equals

Billion Tons
per year of food waste

Wasted food accounts for

$ Billion
in wasted water, or
%

of our water supply

WHY IT'S IMPORTANT

The United States is running out of landfill capacity. Five states already have laws requiring producers to divert organic waste from landfills by 2025 and include California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Vermont, with Maryland, New York and New Jersey close behind. That is a total of 8 and counting!

CalRecycle estimates that approximately 27 million metric tons of organic material will need to be redirected from landfills in 2025 to meet the SB 1383 reduction goal, which would require as much as a 270% increase in anaerobic digestion infrastructure in California.

OUR SOLUTION

BioStar builds and operates facilities which can process organic waste before it is sent to a landfill. Our featured project, in San Bernardino, California diverts 93,850 tons of pre-consumer food waste from the Coachella and Lambs Canyon landfills each year!

We use anaerobic digestion and our patented nutrient recovery technology to create:

  • Globally, food waste accounts for 8% of total greenhouse gas emissions.
  • It is estimated that if food waste were a country, it would be the 3rd highest emitter of greenhouse gas emissions behind the USA and China.
  • Recycling is a core component of sustainability and achieving ESG goals.
