Food Waste Reduction and How Las Vegas is Turning Leftovers into Fuel

Reducing Food Waste in Las Vegas

Las Vegas is a shining example of economic growth,  driven by tourism and gambling. But do you know that this trendsetting destination has the potential to become The Greenest City in the United States?

Always known for regenerating itself, building, tearing down, and building anew, Las Vegas is ready to make history again by fixing a large problem with a forward-thinking solution that benefits everyone…even the environment. The Vegas Valley is hungry for better solutions than composting or diverting leftovers to pig farms.

Did you know that leftover food can actually be turned into water and power?  This energy  could actually benefit business owners, the community, and the environment? Well, the future is here. It’s called “Anaerobic Digestion” and it’s changing everything.

How Does It Work?

We bring you “Clean Organic” waste totes for disposal of your food waste.  Then, we transport it to our anaerobic digestion tanks for processing. Microbes are added.  A motorized mixer and heat are used to increase gas formation. This inflates the dome with natural gases. Those gases  are turned into: 1) compressed natural gas that can also be converted to electricity 2) water 3) fill dirt.

This new power is then pumped into the Nevada Energy Grid and available for use! The Nevada Energy Companies can then facilitate the energy exchange through a PPA Sleeve. This green energy will then be utilized large commercial vertical greenhouses that bring healthier food and big savings! The local bus systems can then purchase power for their local fleets.

To re-cap: Food goes to the trash and then into the anaerobic digester.  Then, it is turned into power and water.  The energy then goes to the greenhouses to grow food. That food  eventually becomes waste and ends up back in the AD. This is a form of a closed-loop system. Now is the time to help Las Vegas make history and become a more SELF-RELIANT, GREEN COMMUNITY in the desert!

How Can YOU help?

Rosalie Bingham is gathering interest in funding, constructing and operating several proposed $10,000,000, one megawatt anaerobic digestion systems in Nevada. This system will enable Las Vegas businesses to profit from food waste for generations to come. They are starting in Las Vegas because it has the largest landfill in the nation. However,  YOUR community can be next! Get involved and take action to create regenerative solutions that will benefit us all.
