BioHiTech scores $2m in food waste digester orders for Carnival, Princess

The Carnival and Princess ships will use the cruise-customized Revolution series biodigesters
BioHiTech Global received approximately $2m worth of orders for its Revolution series food digesters from Carnival Cruise Line and Princess Cruises.

The technology will go to 12 Carnival ships and two Princess ships. BioHiTech expects to fulfill the orders through the second quarter of 2021.

Sustainable food waste management

'Our continued strong relationship with the Carnival family of brands underscores their dedication to sustainable food waste management and the long-awaited re-launch of seafaring travel,' BioHiTech CEO Tony Fuller said.

The Revolution series digesters, equipped with a proprietary data analytics platform, are part of Carnival Corp. & plc's comprehensive plan to limit food waste, achieve safe on-board disposal and improve associated environmental outcomes.

$14m Carnival Corp. deal

The order is part of the Chestnut Ridge, New York-based BioHiTech's purchase contract inked in early 2020 with Carnival Corp. valued at up to $14m for potentially hundreds of Revolution series digesters and ongoing cloud-based data analytics and supplies.
