Spoiled Food Turns Into Beautiful Energy

Anaerobic Digestion Recycling

In the next advancement for the overwhelming food waste issue in the world, comes a new program from the surprising Kroger, Co. and their subsidiaries Ralphs and Food 4 Less.  At a 59-acre Compton distribution site, which serves 359 Southern California stores, the 40% of food that is produced but not sold is sent to be processed into clean energy!  Their technology, is known as an Anaerobic Digester System and it helps transform food unable to be donated or sold into clean electricity by dumping the food into a massive grinder including the cardboard and plastic packaging.
