Manhattan College has connected undergraduate and graduate students with ABC members New York City’s Department of Environmental Protection and Waste Management to advance the OneNYC Plan, New York City’s plan to become the most resilient, equitable and sustainable city in the world. There’s a plan to make all of the city’s 14 water resource recovery facilities energy neutral by 2050. They treat about 1.2 billion gallons of water a day. Co-digestion of food waste and sludge is part of the overall wastewater resource recovery process used to create clean water, clean energy, and beneficial use biosolids, which are all priorities in the OneNYC plan. In addition, the diversion of food waste from landfills to composting and co-digestion are integral to New York City’s goal of achieving a 90% reduction in food waste sent to landfills by 2030.
