Curbstone collection - BMD benefits

Liquid food waste digesters have been gaining popularity as an alternative to curbside collection systems for the disposal of food waste. These machines are compact, efficient, and eco-friendly, making them an ideal choice for households, businesses, and other organizations looking to reduce their impact on the environment. Here are some of the benefits of using a liquid food waste digester compared to a curbside collection system.

Benefits BMD - compared with curbside collection

1- Greenhouse gas emissions: Collection trucks emit greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide and methane, during transportation, contributing to air pollution and global warming.

2- Landfill emissions: When food waste ends up in a landfill, it produces methane as it decomposes, contributing to the greenhouse gas effect and further exacerbating global warming.

3 – Landfill space consumption: Food waste takes up space in landfills, leading to the need for new landfills to be built. This can result in deforestation, soil erosion, and habitat loss for wildlife.

4- Waste collection systems often face challenges related to odor contamination, particularly during hot summer months. The organic waste, such as food waste, produces methane and other harmful gases that can cause strong and unpleasant odors. These odors can lead to public health hazards, including respiratory problems and headaches, and also cause environmental degradation.

5- Another major challenge faced by waste collection systems is pest contamination. Pests, such as rats, flies, and cockroaches, are attracted to waste, and once they establish a habitat, they can quickly spread diseases and contaminate food supplies.

6- The problem of plastic in food waste is largely due to the widespread use of plastic packaging and containers for food and drinks. These plastic products often end up in food waste, contaminating it and making it difficult to recycle. Plastic in food waste can also release toxic chemicals into the environment and harm wildlife that mistake it for food.
