Pedalers Fork, a new restaurant in old town Calabasas California, installed an LFC Bio-Digester from Power Knot to digest its waste food. With an emphasis on being green and clean the restaurant prides itself on its acquisition which prevents hundreds of pounds of waste food from going to the landfill every day.

The LFC Bio-Digester is a biological high technology digester that is totally green and saves the mess, cost, and inconvenience of dumping the waste on a landfill. The LFC Bio-Digester reduces the carbon footprint of the company by over 800,000 lb (400 tonne) CO2e per year and has a payback of less than two years.

The Pedalers Fork restaurant is a newly built restaurant in old town Calabasas, California that prides itself on its environmental sustainability. The restaurant was constructed with much-reclaimed materials and prepares meals using ingredients mostly from local farmers.

Pedalers Fork acquired an LFC-200, a machine that is capable of digesting up to 800 lb (360 kg) of waste per day. The output is sent down the drain so the machine never needs emptying.


The owners designed the space for the LFC Bio-Digester while the building was being constructed. “It’s the right thing to do,” said Tim Rettle, co-owner of the restaurant. “It doesn’t make sense to discard the waste food on a landfill and other restaurant owners should be doing this.”

As a green restaurant, association with all things environmentally conscious is paramount to the construction and operation of the restaurant. With all the measures implemented by the restaurant, Pedalers Fork is one of the greenest restaurants in Southern California.
