Although eliminating plastic straws and installing solar panels are good steps in going green, what about all the food waste tossed in the trash? BioNova America digester systems process food waste to a stable, dry, odor-free material that can be used as compost or as a fuel in a BioNova biomass boiler (for heating and hot water) for a zero-waste solution. “Users continuously empty their pre-prep and food scraps collected during the day directly into the BioNova (with or without a pre-shredder) so there is no need to store food waste until haulers come to pick it up,” explains Sonny Burkett, CEO of BioNova America. Uniquely developed enzymes that last up to 15 years break down organic waste (including biodegradable dinnerware) and reduce mass and volume by up to 75% in less than 24 hr. Without added fresh water or grey water discharge. If no material is added to the digester, the system automatically goes into a dormant/ sleep mode and is awakened with the addition of new material for up to 2 months. “In many cases, [the system] can be paid for with savings from waste hauling costs,” adds Burkett. “Clients can achieve their sustainability and legislative goals by eliminating food waste being dumped into landfills.” Six different systems are available that process 200 lb. To more than 6 tons of food waste daily to accommodate single- or multi-site operations.

FIRE SUPPRESSION HYBRID
The PIRANHA Dual Agent Restaurant Fire Suppression System employs the best firefighting attributes of 2 extinguishing agents: the fast flame knockdown and securing power of wet chemical and the fast cool-down capability of water. One of the few agent-plus-water fire suppression hybrids on the market, the PIRANHA System outperforms many conventional single-agent systems. The system attacks fire using the rapid flame knockdown and the securing capabilities of PRX Liquid Fire Suppressant. After that, water follows, quickly cooling the cooking media and further helping to prevent re-flash. Agent discharge nozzles allow installation at increased heights.
TANKS A LOT
Mobile and rugged, the “Tank Tank” Waste Cooking Oil Containment Caddy now is hands-free thanks to an onboard motor, pump, and wand. Just wheel the 74-gal.

Frontline also offers a 47-gal. Unit for smaller operations.
