Carnival Corp has contracted BioHiTech Global to install digesters and data analytics on several ships, with an option to fit several more.

BioHiTech will provide each ship with multiple revolution series digesters, as well as ongoing cloud-based data analytics and supplies.

The digesters will help reduce the environmental impact of Carnival’s operations by safely disposing of food waste on-site, limiting the amount of greenhouse gases emitted from conventional processing systems. The company’s data analytics platform will also provide real-time supply chain transparency to help in Carnival’s food waste reduction efforts.

“We are excited to partner with the team at Carnival to assist in their ongoing efforts to reduce greenhouse gasses and achieve important sustainability goals,” said Frank Celli, BioHiTech CEO (pictured).

“We are committed to helping businesses reduce their environmental impact through smarter technology and believe this partnership is part of a growing trend toward the adoption of our sustainable solutions by companies all over the world.

“We look forward to providing Carnival with the tools and support to move to the forefront of sustainability in the cruise industry,” he said.
