Eliminating 'Muda' at the University of Notre Dame

The University of Notre Dame is implementing a new food waste system which will reduce overall waste, campuswide, by 10%, or 700,000 pounds per year. The university is working to install Grind2Energy, a system that prepares food waste to be converted to clean, renewable energy.

“While we continue to work on source reduction and donations of consumable food to local outlets, we will still have food waste and it’s exciting to know that it will now avoid the landfill and be converted into clean energy,” said Carol Mullaney, senior director of sustainability at Notre Dame.
