NOCHI or else New Orleans Culinary & Hospitality Institute is a 90,000-square-foot facility with unique operations such as culinary classes. As a culinary school NOCHI decided to support green waste management and install the LFC Biodigester to deal with food waste. To embrace a low-carbon future, NOCHI students now have the “stomach of steel”, meaning LFC, capable of processing all waste food onsite, and thereby diverting it from the landfill where it would contribute to greenhouse gases. On average, it processes roughly 200 pounds of waste daily. This volume of organic waste in a landfill would generate harmful methane (a greenhouse gas with 84 times the global warming potential of carbon dioxide). Since its installation, the LFC biodigester has processed more than 8 tons of food waste, representing a reduction in emissions of 34 tonnes of CO2e.
