Case Studies

University of La Verne

Facilities Department 

Project

Our team of experts conducted a food waste audit before researching and evaluating different food waste processing technologies. Our extensive research helped us choose the best options for the facility. We prepared an Organics Recovery Plan, and provided third party coordination support for project implementation.

Outcome

We recommended an on-site, in-vessel food processing system instead of off-site composting services.  The University has committed funds to purchase the system and space within the newly constructed student dining commons.

Rose Bowl Stadium

Operations Department 

Project

Our specialists conducted a food waste analysis over 3 football game events plus the Rose Bowl Game.  We started by initiating a protocol and process for recovering the organic waste.  Then we provided a team of qualified and trained event staff for data collection

and monitoring.
