Designed to safely convert up to 1,200 pounds of food waste per day into a liquid that can be returned to the ecosystem.

The new Eco-Safe Digester from Marathon is an innovation breakthrough in confronting the growing problem of organic waste processing and disposal.

The Eco-Safe Digester is an environmentally friendly method for converting food waste into liquid and was designed in response to some staggering statistics :

  • According to a 2008 United Nations study, it's estimated that about 30 percent of the food produced annually in the United States — about $50 billion — is thrown into the garbage.
  • Food retailers lose more than of 5.5 billion pounds of food per year — about 2 percent of the edible food supply — with dairy, fruit, and vegetable spoilage accounting for half of those losses, according to a USDA report.
  • The Environmental Protection Agency has reported that the United States spends an estimated $1 billion annually on disposing of food waste.
  • Less than 800,000 tons of the 31.79 million tons of food waste generated annually in the United States is diverted from landfills.
  • Benefits

    By diverting waste from landfills, the Eco-Safe Digester offers multiple environmental benefits as well as measurable cost savings. For example, using the 1,200-pound capacity unit for one year:

    - Reduces 58 MTCE of greenhouse gases
    - Is equivalent to taking 40 cars off the road
    - Saves 1,700 gallons of diesel fuel (it takes 130 barrels of crude oil to produce 1,200 gallons of diesel fuel)
    - Reduces CO2 by 470,000 pounds
    - Preserves valuable landfill space
    - Is equivalent to planting approximately 100 trees
    - Reduces use of trash bags and rodent control systems
    - Returns tens of thousands of gallons of water a year to the ecosystem
