The company's CEO, Jim Weaver, provided a significant example for the Grand Rapids area. Brewers' discarded grain is a typical byproduct of the brewing industry and makes up about 85% of the trash produced overall.
According to Weaver, the spent grain from brewers has a high moisture level of 80 to 85% and resembles oatmeal in consistency. The powder that is produced after going through their mill contains less than 5% moisture and is processed through the system in less than 10 seconds. Then, this specific powder might be utilized as baking flour.
As stated by the company's officials, additional resources will be added to the worldwide supply chain to "stop the rot."
Due to the lack of transportation, a significant portion of the food produced in South America is left to decay in the fields. Thus, rather than allowing that to decay in the area, their technology can be installed essentially wherever there is access to power, and the wasted 50% might be converted into a useful asset.
The primary goal of GTF, according to Schuler and Weaver, is feeding, even though the environmental and financial advantages are significant. Gleaning the Fields, which refers to a charitable idea from the Bible, is the name of the company.
More than 800 million people around the world are undernourished, according to Schuler, indicating a great need for food. GTF Technologies is not trying to provide a solution that involves generating more food.
Weaver declared that the issue at hand is not one of food production. You will constantly be stated that we need to create more food, even when 60% of what we produce ends up in landfills.
GTF Technologies has a charitable branch that collaborates with other NGOs globally to provide dietary supplements to people in need. Additionally, the organization donates a portion of powder sales and donates a portion of its revenue to fund its nonprofit efforts while also encouraging customers to donate.
According to Schuler, "gleaning the fields” is a biblical connection to Leviticus when people were obligated to carry the leftovers of the field and support widows and orphans. That is the foundation of the company's identity and culture.
GTF Technologies, in general, is a valuable possibility, in Schuler and Weaver's opinion, for every area of managing food waste.
"They offer really good environmental opportunities for both companies and the government, and they have really strong missions they believe in trying to assist people to get enough to eat."View Details
