1 Year Anniversary of Depackaging

Table of Content

After a full year of successful operation, our distinctive depackaging equipment has enabled Green Energy Biofuel and ReSoil Compost to provide customers with an even wider array of zero-landfill options, promoting environmental consciousness and cost savings. The U.S. EPA’s Food Recovery Hierarchy emphasizes that landfilling food waste should be the last resort, following source reduction, feeding the hungry, and beneficial practices like composting. Unfortunately, due to factors like expirations, recalls, packaging materials, and convenience, major food companies and grocery-store chains often opt to pay for dumping, making it the initial and easiest choice.

Breaking this unsustainable cycle, Green Energy Biofuel and its affiliate, ReSoil Compost, have emerged as leaders. Our T42 Turbo Separator Depackaging Boss machine has adeptly depackaged both wet and dry food waste for prominent food manufacturers and distributors across the country. This innovative approach allows Green Energy Biofuel to recycle all packaged materials, while ReSoil Compost efficiently processes organic waste, presenting a holistic ZERO LANDFILL solution for waste disposal. By adopting these strategies, companies can fulfill their corporate responsibility for sustainability, align with shareholder expectations for zero-landfill operations, and respond to societal demands to minimize, reuse, and recycle.

According to BioJoe Renwick, co-owner of Green Energy Biofuel and ReSoil Compost, “The market is hungry for the offerings we bring to the table. We stand alone this side of Texas in owning this unique equipment.” Renwick stresses that owning a composting facility is a prerequisite for cost-effective operation of these substantial systems. “Disposing of food waste is becoming excessively costly,” he notes. “Furthermore, if you’re resorting to landfilling this waste, can you genuinely label yourself as environmentally conscious? For items like oil-based condiments, if the oil cannot be reclaimed, can your practices truly be considered sustainable?”

The T42 model impressively processes 10 to 30 tons per hour, utilizing its 56 robust “Gorilla Fists” driven by a 75-horsepower motor. This versatile system can handle a wide range of materials, including industrial bulk and palletized prepackaged foods, organic products from grocery stores, mixed commercial source-separated organics, and even goods packed within 5-gallon pails can be depackaged.

Green Energy Biofuel and ReSoil Compost are committed to playing a vital role as a comprehensive waste-service provider, catering to even the largest food-waste generators. In Aiken, South Carolina, Green Energy Biofuel operates an industrial-scale grease-recycling center capable of processing substantial quantities of oily waste, with an additional wastewater permit secured this spring. Furthermore, the company manages two grease-processing facilities in Winnsboro, South Carolina, and Knoxville, Tennessee. The era of major corporations routinely landfilling immense volumes of food waste each month is drawing to a close. Addressing food loss and waste is pivotal to cultivating a resilient and climate-smart food system.
