Singaporean hotel's waste management system up for 'Most Green Collaboration' Award
A food waste digestion system that has successfully reduced food waste at a smart Singaporean hotel, may have won those involved an Award. The project has been selected as one of three finalists in the 'Most Green Collaboration' category, by the Singapore International Chamber of Commerce, for its 2017 SICC Awards celebrating collaborative innovation.
The collaboration involves BioHiTech Global, which develops waste management technologies; its local distributor, waste digester specialist Enerprof, and the Marina Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore.
The recognition stems from the installation of five on-site Eco-Safe Digesters at the hotel, through BioHiTech Global's exclusive marketing partnership in Singapore with South East Asian distributor, Enerprof Pte. The Digester is a cost effective and environmentally responsible on-site food waste disposal system. The Marina Bay Sands installation received a Distinction of Service Award for minimising food waste at the recent 3R Awards for Hotels, sponsored by the National Environment Agency and the Singapore Hotel Association.
BioHiTech's distribution agreement with Enerprof, through its Flexi Systems subsidiary in Singapore, has also resulted in the recent installation of the Company's Eco-Safe Digesters at Singapore University of Technology and Design. Enerprof partnered with Weishen Industrial Services, a Singapore-based cleaning and environmental services company, to enable SUTD to become the first tertiary education institute in Singapore to have a campus-wide, food waste reduction initiative.
"We congratulate the Marina Bay Sands as having been selected as a finalist for this award along with our distribution partner in Singapore," says Frank E. Celli, CEO of BioHiTech Global. "The deployment of our solutions in markets like Singapore is a key part of our plan to establish a global footprint in cost effective and green waste management.
"By working with select distribution partners like Enerprof and Flexi Systems, we can help solve the waste disposal challenges faced by Singapore and become an important part of the global initiative to significantly reduce or even eliminate organic waste."
