AT&T and Emerson Work as One to Reduce Methane Emissions
has teamed up with AT&T Internet of Things (IoT) to advance its innovative Grind2Energy
food waste recycling system. Emerson’s Grind2Energy food waste system is an innovative
food waste system designed for large food generators interested in minimizing
their environmental impact and maximizing their operational efficiency. Grind2Energy
decreases contributions to landfills and helps generate clean, renewable energy,
according to Emerson.
AT&T IoT’s assistance Emerson will provide timely environmental
sustainability information, performance data reporting, and data analytics to its
customers. The newly developed IoT technology will also streamline tank
monitoring analytics and pump-out scheduling coordination.
waste in the U.S. makes up 97% of the landfills, once the food decomposes it
produces methane gas-25X more harmful than CO2 as a greenhouse gas and is a major
contributor to the shrinking ozone layer. As a result of methane emissions states
and municipalities require large food waste generators to find a recycling
solution like Grind2Energy.
“With the Grind2Energy system, Emerson has
diverted 7,400 tons of food waste from landfills. We plan to roll out hundreds
of IoT-connected Grind2Energy systems over the next few years,” said Tim Ferry, group president, Tools &
Home Products, Emerson Commercial & Residential.
