Archaic waste management is destroying our planet.

1,800,000acres

active landfills in the United States

There are more than 3,000 active landfills in the United States, taking up 1,800,000 acres of habitat that displaces local flora and fauna.

40%

percentage of landfill waste that is food

According to the EPA, food is the single largest category of material placed in municipal landfills, accounting for about 40% of the total waste.

58%

methane emissions from landfills

An estimated 58% of the fugitive methane emissions (i.e., those released to the atmosphere) are from landfilled food waste.

3rd largest

contributor to climate change

Landfills are the third-largest source of climate change in theUS, only behind FOSSIL fuel and big agriculture.

ZeroDay turns food waste from a climate change contributor to a mitigator.

Overview

Anaerobic digestion

THE GLOBAL RENEWABLE NATURAL GAS MARKET SIZE WAS USD 8 bILLION IN 2022 AND IS PROJECTED TO TOUCH USD 215 bILLION BY 2031, EXHIBITING A CAGR OF 44.0% DURING THE FORECAST PERIOD. AS OF NOW, RENEWABLE NATURAL ENERGY IS CONSIDERED THE ONLY VIABLE SOLUTION tO REpLACE FOSSIL FUEL AT A LARGE SCALE

Carbon Negativity

what is it?

"Carbon negative" refers to a state where an entity or activity removes more carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere than it emits, effectively reducing the overall concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere. Achieving carbon negativity is crucial for combating climate change and reversing the trend of increasing greenhouse gas emissions.

anaerobic digestion

Anaerobic digestion is carbon-negative due to its ability to capture methane emissions, sequester carbon in soil through digestate application, offset fossil fuel use with renewable biogas, and contribute to a closed carbon cycle within ecosystems.
