CHESTNUT RIDGE, N.Y., FEB. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- BioHiTech Global, Inc. ("BioHiTech" or the "Company") (OTCQB: BHTG), a green technology company that develops and deploys innovative and disruptive waste management technologies, today announced that the Company has received a purchase order from a growing west coast specialty grocery chain to deploy BioHiTech's Eco-Safe Digesters at nine additional, California locations in order to comply with the state's newly implemented food waste disposal regulations.
California's Mandatory Commercial Organics Recycling program expanded its reach on January 1, 2017, to include all businesses that generate 4 cubic yards or more of organic waste per week. BioHiTech's commercial food waste disposal systems offer a convenient one-step solution for converting food waste into safe wastewater, allowing businesses to expediently meet diversion requirements in a cost-effective manner while achieving greater levels of sustainability.

The added advantage of BioHiTech's proprietary real time analytics tool, which is incorporated in its Eco-Safe Digester, provides businesses an unprecedented level of transparency into waste generation and diversion efforts.

BioHiTech's proprietary digestion process coupled with its smart information capabilities is a cost effective eco-friendly solution that also serves as a valuable supply chain management tool. The real-time measurement of waste generation is pinnacle in reducing overall waste generation while the efficient conversion of organic waste into a safe wastewater byproduct serves as the most environmentally sound means of food waste diversion.
"We are extremely excited about the expansion of our relationship with this premier customer and happy to continue providing our Eco-Safe Digesters as the preferred means of organic waste diversion for this growing specialty grocery chain."
