Sustainability Problem and Proposed Solution: 

The digester would replace our typical composting approach, as it would act as a pulverizer for the over 40,000 pounds of food waste that the Colleges Nine and Ten Dining Hall and University Center produces per month. Instead of taking out the food waste in large refuse trucks that average 2.53-6.5mpg and hauling it all the way to Marina, CA
