Approximately 30 to 40 percent of food is wasted in the U.S. each year while about 42 million Americans are food insecure, according to the USDA.
JoTo PR client, Power Knot, was featured in a highly-targeted industry news article in Food Quality & Safety Magazine entitled Waste Not, Want Not.
The unnecessary disposal of food is in part caused by a cultural fixation on the aesthetic quality of food. Americans want their meals to not only taste good but look good as well, which has led food service and manufacturing facilities to waste valuable products in an effort to adhere.
Power Knot, LLC, based in California, has recognized this issue by creating food composters for commercial and industrial facilities seeking to reduce their carbon footprint. The company’s LFC (Liquid Food Composter) is a fully-enclosed automatic composting machine that liquefies food waste and safely discharges it into the sewage system. These composters have been implemented in establishments including food preparation companies, restaurants, supermarkets, and sporting arenas.
“Being green often does save money,” says Iain Milnes, CEO of Power Knot. “If a company is paying $1,000 a month to get rid of their organic waste, our composters will reduce that expenditure and the company will see a huge payback.”
“Power Knot provides safe and economically sound solutions for commercial, industrial and military customers globally seeking to reduce their carbon footprint by reducing the expense, inconvenience, and mess of disposing of food waste that would otherwise be hauled to a landfill where it would degrade into methane. Power Knot is proven and offers a payback period of typically less than two years.”
Food Quality and Safety Magazine is a twice-monthly magazine that is dedicated to keeping analytical laboratory, plant operations and engineering personnel, and QA/QC informed about the latest technologies, techniques, and legislation in food quality assurance, control and validation.
