Feed Resource Recovery Inc.

Generating Energy
and Fertilizer
from food waste.

Founded in Boston, Mass. in 2007, Feed Resource Recovery has designed and implemented a groundbreaking Zero Waste solution for the food industry. Our innovative and proprietary approach leverages customers’ existing transportation and distribution systems to generate clean, sustainable power for onsite operations, reduce emissions and save millions of dollars on waste removal costs.

Resource Recovery Model —

RESTORING NATURAL ORDER.

  1. NATURE'S MODEL
    Nature’s products have a closed-loop, regenerative life-cycle; plants grow, die and decompose into simpler elements that can be continually reused and recycled.
  2. INDUSTRIAL MODEL
    Typical industrial products have a linear life-cycle. Resources (energy and nutrients) flow in only one direction—from resource to production to disposal.
  3. RESOURCE RECOVERY MODEL
    Our approach emulates Nature’s regenerative model—extending the life-cycle of previously discarded food by recovering the energy and nutrients embedded in food waste.

Profit from your own waste —

Decentralize
the waste industry.

Whether you are a regional or national supermarket chain, food distributor, restaurant chain or local municipality, we can help you easily manage, process and profit from your own food waste. Traditional waste-disposal providers charge for every ton, compactor, pick-up and disposal. Their space requirements and odor issues make it impractical for them to be located anywhere near waste generators. In contrast, our system’s compact and zero-emissions design, allows customers to permit and install at their facilities. Watch Video

Anaerobic Digestion —

INNOVATION
INSPIRED BY NATURE.

In nature, wetlands use anaerobic digestion to purify the earth’s wastewater. Feed utilizes this natural process, along with proprietary technology and optimization advancements, to cleanly and efficiently convert the carbon in organic waste into a renewable natural gas. The result—zero odors, a net surplus of energy and a nutrient rich fertilizer.

COMPACT.
AUTOMATED.
NATURE
DOES
THE
REST.

Power your facility or fuel your trucks
using any type of food waste—
packaged and unpackaged.

INTEGRATED MATERIAL HANDLING
Existing food distribution networks are used
to collect and consolidate waste. Similar to how customers currently handle their recyclables (cardboard, paper, plastic, cans).
AUTOMATED PACKAGING REMOVAL
Sophisticated front-end waste sorting equipment can handle any type of food
waste—everything from yogurt containers to egg cartons to sausage packages to lettuce.
SELF-REGULATED NATURAL PROCESS
High-rate, anaerobic digestion technology generates methane-rich biogas, clean effluent and high concentrate fertilizer—all within a compact, modular footprint.
CUSTOMIZED ENERGY GENERATION
Interchangeable modules give customers the option to use biogas as fuel for onsite boilers, natural gas trucks, or combined
heat & power units.
WEB-BASED OPTIMIZATION SOFTWARE
Automation software enables biological and mechanical parameters to be monitored remotely, while proprietary algorithms quickly diagnose and optimize system irregularities.

Kroger unveils an Innovative Solution to Convert Food Waste to Clean Energy.

The Kroger system is designed and operated by FEED Resource Recovery Inc., a clean technology company founded in Boston, Mass in 2007. FEED’s innovative and proprietary approach leverages Kroger’s existing distribution network to generate clean, sustainable power for onsite operations, reduce emissions and save millions of dollars on waste removal costs. The groundbreaking system is located at Kroger’s Compton, CA distribution facility and will convert over 55,000 tons of food waste into clean energy to offset more than 20% of the energy demand of the Kroger distribution facility.

Project Facts

  • 300,000+ pounds of organics processed. Every day.
  • 500,000+ diesel truck miles eliminated annually.
  • Clean energy to offset 20+% of Kroger's Compton DC.
  • 18.5% ROI for Kroger
  • Zero odor.
