Fujitsu deploys machine to decompose waste food
Machine sits in kitchen and continuously digests waste
Output is sent as nutrient rich grey water down the drain
Machine saves the cost, incovenience, and mess of sending waste food to a landfill
Machine pays for itself by the reduction of cost of trash
This machine has the potential of diverting 26,000 pounds of waste food from the landfill annually. When waste food goes to a landfill, it decomposes into methane which is 72 times worse for the environment than carbon dioxide. We realized that the waste food we discarded had a large impact on our carbon footprint and we needed to solve that problem.

The environment is Fujitsu’s prime concern, however most of what we do to support the environment has a long term positive impact on our bottom line. We believe the payback on the LFC-70 will be 24 months or less, due to the reduction of trash going to the landfill.
