Vanguard Renewables advanced Organics Recycling Facility depackages and processes expired goods, off-spec batches, or unsafe to eat food and beverage products. The extracted food is transported and recycled at a Massachusetts Farm Powered anaerobic digester, where it is combined with farm waste and converted into renewable energy.
Food waste is one of the greatest challenges of our time and one that directly impacts people, planet, and profit. That being said, the average person may not realize how the food they throw away can have a negative impact on climate change.
The anaerobic digester at Goodrich Family Farm turns cow manure and food waste into carbon-negative, renewable natural gas
View this webinar moderated by Morgan Collins, Head of Sustainable Finance at Starbucks, to get an inside look at how food industry leaders Chobani, PepsiCo, and renewable energy producer Vanguard Renewables work with farmers to expand regenerative agriculture practices and incorporate these strategies in customer communications to build loyalty that impacts the bottom line.
At Vanguard Renewables, the unavoidable food and beverage "waste" from manufacturing and the supply chain waste that cannot be consumed by people or animals and was once sent to landfills or incineration is the fuel we use to power our farm-based renewable energy facilities
Regenerative ag is a growing, dynamic movement that has potential for tremendous climate reversal and healthy food production. When even Neil Young says, “Put the carbon back in the soil," you know it’s time to get on board.
The remarkable thing about food waste is that it can become either a dangerous greenhouse gas or an incredible ingredient to produce renewable energy and low carbon fertilizer. The deciding factor is based entirely on how we dispose of it.
The potential of renewable natural gas in the decarbonization landscape is examined in this Q&A with Johannes Escudero, CEO and Executive Director of the Coalition for Renewable Natural Gas (RNG Coalition).
Project Drawdown’s 2020 Review cites food waste reduction as the Number One solution in a list of 80+ solutions for combating climate change. Meet food industry leaders committed to pivot unavoidable food waste from a detrimental source of damaging greenhouse gas to carbon-negative renewable natural gas; a powerful tool to fight climate change.
