BioHiTech Global Inc., Chestnut Ridge, New York, has announced the installation of its Revolution Series Sprout digester in the Food Lab at the Seaport District NYC (formerly known as the South Street Seaport).

The rebranded Seaport District NYC is part of a $730 million dollar renovation of 400,000 square feet of retail space, including the iconic Pier 17. Once completed, it will be a premier cultural, dining and retail anchor, creating an unparalleled New York experience and the most vibrant lifestyle destination in Manhattan. 

The Seaport Food Lab is a restaurant that will feature master chefs from across the country for two-week residencies, each giving New York a taste of their culinary mastery. The Sprout digester was selected by property management for installation at the Food Lab where some of the top chefs in the country will gain exposure to this environmentally responsible and cost-effective solution for the disposal and measurement of food waste. BioHitech expects to install additional Revolution Series Digesters as new restaurants open at the Seaport in the coming months.

"Having our equipment installed in a kitchen utilized by a rotation of some of the nation's top chefs is an exciting opportunity for us," says CEO Frank E. Celli. "Our new Revolution Series products were specifically designed to service the restaurant and small user market and this marquee location will give our revolutionary food waste management technology direct exposure to these thought leading chefs in the restaurant industry. Equally as important, this installation, and future on-site deployments of our digester solutions in the Seaport District, will reduce the amount of waste that would otherwise end up in distant landfills resulting in decreased transportation costs and a more positive environmental impact. As New York's mayor targets a zero landfill waste goal by 2030, solutions like ours will help pave the way to make that goal a reality."
