NYS food waste recycling efforts boosted with the help of NYSP2I

Earlier this week, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) announced $4 million in grant funding to expand food waste recycling. The purpose of the funds will be to expand the capacity of large food scraps generators, like hospitals or supermarkets, to divert excess food. The diversion of excess food waste from landfills is an environmentally-conscious solution that will also result in significantly positive implications for New York State communities.

One of FuzeHub’s fellow NYSTAR Innovation Asset Partners, The New York State Pollution Prevention Institute (NYSP2I) was identified in the DEC’s press release for the key role they will play in managing the statewide program: “P2I is working closely with DEC on multiple efforts to reduce the generation of food scraps and recycle food scraps that remain and this funding will help generators expand their sustainability efforts.”
