STRATHAM, N.H.—BioGreen360, a leading innovator in distributed food waste management solutions, announced it has entered into a national partnership with Sage Hospitality Group to develop a closed-loop program to divert 100 percent of their hotels’ food waste from landfill with the residual material being integrated into an array of all-natural compost and fertilizer products.
The companies have agreed to roll out the BioGreen360 circular solution to food waste in a phased approach across Sage Hospitality Group’s portfolio of hotels. The first phase of the collaboration includes program installations at five properties in key urban and resort markets across the U.S. After the success of these five properties in phase one, the plan is to implement the BioGreen360 solution throughout the Sage portfolio in 2024.
“As we implement our company-wide ESG and sustainability platform, we were looking for a single-source provider of organics management to divert food waste from landfill consistently across our portfolio of properties,” said Brad Robinette, Senior Vice President of Special Projects for Sage. “We believe we have found that solution with BioGreen360.”
The collaboration will leverage BioGreen360’s innovative integrated technology solution, which includes a waterless distributed digestor, proprietary bio-catalysis; and a real-time data analytics package, offered through an “as a service” business model. Through the BioGreen360 platform, Sage properties will not only divert 100 percent of their food waste, but now will also repurpose food that otherwise would have been wasted into a high-value, sustainable natural resource through an environmentally friendly, fully circular process.
“We are delighted Sage is adopting our innovative closed-loop solution to food waste as we have found their teams not only to be excellent operators and hospitality professionals, but also forward-thinking and receptive to embracing new technologies that will further differentiate them as a sustainable hospitality experience,” said Joseph Vaillancourt, BioGreen360’s Chairman. “We are excited Sage has chosen BioGreen360 as a sustainability partner and we look forward to helping them achieve their ESG goals through our platform.”
