Princeton University’s latest sustainable innovation can be found along the edge of campus just behind FitzRandolph Observatory. There, under a white tent, hums a new biodigester that turns food waste into nutrient-rich compost. Since operations began in fall 2018, more than 16 tons of food scraps have been converted into compost. Read the full story here.

The University held a ceremony on Jan. 8 to mark the biodigester’s installation on campus. Standing to Whang’s left is Nicholas Smith-Sebasto, founder and executive chairman of FOR Solutions, which manufactured the aerobic digester machine. Also helping cut the ribbon is Princeton’s Director of Sustainability Shana Weber (second from right) and Gina Talt (far right), who oversees day-to-day operations at the biodigester.
