Auburn University Selects FOR Solutions Composting System

SEATTLE (Waste Advantage): FOR Solutions, a leading developer of commercial-scale food composting solutions for businesses and institutions, announces that Auburn University has selected its Model 618 Composting System to enhance its sustainability efforts. FOR Solutions composting systems are designed to recycle uneaten food into nutrient-dense, high-quality compost instead of landfilling or incinerating it.

Auburn University is committed to using sustainable materials management practices to minimize the environmental impact of its dining services. With the addition of the FOR Solutions Model 618 Composting System, the University will be able to further reduce its carbon footprint by recycling its uneaten food into a valuable soil amendment.

The FOR Solutions Model 618 Composting System includes an aerobic in-vessel rotary drum digester that epitomizes sustainable materials management by recycling uneaten food into high-quality compost in just five days in a virtually odorless process that requires no supplemental heat or enzymes. FOR Solutions composting systems are optimized for large institutions such as colleges and universities that currently send large amounts of uneaten food to landfills or incinerators. The FOR Solutions Model 618 Composting System is designed to process up to 520,000 lbs. of uneaten food annually.

“We are thrilled to partner with Auburn University to help further its commitment to sustainable materials management” said FOR Solutions Founder and CEO Nicholas Smith-Sebasto, Ph.D. “By providing them with our patented, innovative composting biotechnology, we are enabling them to reduce their environmental impact while producing nutrient-rich compost. Our Model 618 Composting System is the ideal solution for colleges/universities looking to reduce waste and promote sustainability.”

“When we investigated composting our campus food waste, our goal was to utilize the compost to grow more food. Most solutions were labor intensive, smelly, and required the compost to be dried after it came out of the vessel” said Glenn Loughridge, Director of Campus Dining & Concessions. “We chose a FOR Solutions composting system because it was an end-to-end solution that produces immediately usable compost, eliminates unpleasant smells, and is simple to load.”

“This new composter will be a game-change not only for Auburn’s poultry research facilities, but for the university as a whole” said Dr. William Dozier, Professor of Poultry Science. “This technology will be used for poultry-related waste as well as food waste from campus dining facilities, and the compost will be available for use in garden and landscape areas throughout the university campus. The sustainability impact for Auburn will be significant.”
