The Food Waste Problem
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
• 70 billion lbs. of food waste
per year1
• 97% goes to landfill
• Methane gas is 21 times
more damaging than CO2
• Pickup and hauling
emissions
Organic waste represents the largest part of our garbage that
still ends up in landfill. Every day, institutional and commercial
kitchens across North America generate over 120 million pounds
of food waste. According to the EPA, more than 97% of this food
waste ends up in landfill where it produces harmful methane gas.
The economic and environmental impact of this fact is staggering.
Consider:
• Methane from rotting food in landfill accounts for over 20% of all
emmissions annually. Methane is a potent greenhouse gas (GHG)
that is 21 times more harmful than CO2 to the environment.
• At an average of just 4-7 miles per gallon, gabage trucks burn
huge amounts of fossil fuels and generate large volumes of GHG
to pickup and transport our food waste.
• The economic cost for the pickup, transport and disposal of
this food waste is estimated at over $1.2 billion annually in
North America.
OPERATIONAL IMPACT
• Unpleasant odors
• Attracts pests, vermin
and insects
• Workplace sanitation
requirements
• Workplace safety concerns
ECONOMIC IMPACT
• $1 billion per year spent
on disposal of food waste1
• $90 to $200 per ton, all
in disposal costs
• Operational and
productivity costs

Alternative Solutions:
COMPOSTING or BIOCONVERSION?
They are both better for the environment, however:
• They still require pickup and hauling
• There is future cost uncertainty, with higher
operating costs than landfill
• They are currently heavily subsidized

The EnviroPure Solution
The ultimate solution in dealing with food waste is to reach a zero waste state
where we no longer throw away food. While we continue to work towards
that goal, EnviroPure systems offer a simple, easy to implement and economically
attractive alternative today: self-contained, small footprint,
aerobic food waste decomposition systems that eliminate
food waste on-site, at the source where it is generated.
Operational Efficiencies and Savings: Eliminate odors and
related sanitation, vermin and insect control requirements.
Improve workflow and workplace safety.
Reduced Environmental Impact: Diversion from
landfill. No potential for ground water conatamination.
No methane or GHGs from pickup,
transport and disposal process.
Bottom Line Benefits: Immediate and
significant savings through reduced
pickup, hauling and disposal costs.
Did You Know We’re
“Biogenic”?
According to the EPA and USCC,
carbon dioxide emissions generated
from the aerobic decomposition of
food waste by systems such as the
EnviroPure systems are considered
to be “biogenic”.
This means that our EnviroPure
Systems and the carbon it returns
to the environment are part of the
natural carbon cycle and so it does
not contribute to greenhouse gases
and global warming.

Dual Technologies. One Result
EnviroPure offers two different technologies designed to meet the needs of
your operational environment.
EPW Wet Systems break down the food waste in a submersed water-based
environment producing a gray water bi-product that meets or exceeds
regulatory standards for safe disposal into municipal waste water systems.
EPD Dry Systems use a substrate based evaporative decomposition process
to rapidly convert food waste into a nutrient rich compost material suitable
for re-use in landscaping and agricultural applications. Reductions of 1000:1
in food waste volume by weight can be achieved over the processing cycle
of the system.
Both systems use our proprietary all-natural, biodegradable BioMixTM
additive, an all-natural vitamin extract (not bacteria or enzymes) to accelerate
the decomposition process. The result: complete elimination of food waste
in 24 hours. Processing capacitites range from 120-8000 lbs. per day in both
batch and continual feed modes.
EPW Wet System Cycle
1. LOADING of food waste
ACTIVATES CYCLE
• High pressure clean out
of filters
• Activate grinder pumps
- Grind incoming food
- Re-grind existing
food waste
- Circulate settled solids
in tank
• Cycle compressor pump
and oxygen diffuser to
ensure aerobic process
• Deactivate pumps
and grinders to allow
settling of solids for
sludge reduction
2. BioMix AUTOMATICALLY
ADDED during cycle as
required
3. PLC auto-controlled
CYCLE REPEAT
How It Works
EnviroPure systems work through a combination of continuous
mechancial processing of the food waste, tightly controlled
environmental conditions to maintain aerobic decomposition,
and hyper-acceleration of the decomposition process through
the addition of BioMixTM additive.

The EnviroPure Solution
• Hyper-accelerated food waste
decomposition system
• On-site elimination of food waste
in 24 hours
• Uses physical and biological
processes in a submersed
environment to break down food
waste into H2O and CO2
• Produces gray water bi-product
safe for disposal in sewer
• NO odors, NO sludge build-up,
NO system clean outs
EnviroPure Wet Systems (EPW)
EnviroPure’s Wet System is a hyper-accelerated food waste decomposition system.
Your food waste will be eliminated within
24 hours. It uses both physical and biological
processes in a submersed environment to
break down food waste into H2O and CO2.
• It produces gray water bi-product which is
safe for disposal in sewers
• There are no odors,
no sludge build-up, and
no system clean outs
EnviroPure Wet System Operation
Our EPW Wet System is simple and easy to operate:
• It has a single ON/OFF button operation
• It automatically cycles and processes food waste
as it is added
• It has both continuous and batch-feed modes
• There is an auto shut-off timer for remote grinder
motor and water supply
• The auto-disconnect system shuts off when the
hatch door opens or with lifter activation
Made For IC&I Customers
EnviroPure systems are ideal for
industrial, commercial and institutional
kitchens that generate large volumes
of organic food waste:
• Hotels and resorts
• Hospitals
• BioMixTM is added automatically as required
• Nursing and Retirement Homes
• Limited ongoing maintenance required
• Universities and Colleges
• Corporate and Factory Cafeterias
• Casinos
• Cruise Ships
• Prisons and other secure facilities
• Stadiums and sporting venues
• Food Processing Plants
