Veterans Coalition Forms to Help Achieve “NET ZERO Waste” goals
Date:3/6/2013

Alexandria, VA. (PRWEB) March 06, 2013

The Department of Defense is working across services to achieve ambitious “Net Zero” goals that dramatically reduce energy consumption, water use, and waste generation. Progress in all three areas is encouraging as technology solutions combine with cultural changes to produce new practices at user and installation levels. New breakthroughs in waste dehydration and concentration promise answers to persistent challenges in waste stream reduction. These emergent solutions can contribute significantly to the reduction of required landfills.
Integrated Veterans Services, with the support of the manufacturer of Ecovim Eco –Systems, Enic Inc., recently completed a successful pilot test program with the Defense Commissary Agency. The technology marketed by Integrated Veteran Services, LLC, Ecovim Eco -Systems, uses a propriety dehydration and heat process without adding water, chemicals or enzymes, to transform raw food waste into nutrient rich mulch suitable for organic farming, landscaping or animal food. With further compaction, the waste is easily burned as a fuel substitute. The propriety process produces ZERO negative environmental impacts to BOD (biochemical oxygen demand) or TSS (total suspended solids). The Ecovim Eco -Systems technology reduces food waste volume up to 93 percent, including all organic and compostable matter, in a processing time of 6 hours to 23 hours, depending on volume.
Butch Maki, President of IVS said, “Our Company has already achieved a successful track record with the Ecovim technology at several military bases, hotel chains, restaurants and resorts, and this is only the beginning.”
The three companies involved in this effort believe that this technology can enable the Military Services and Agencies within the Department of Defense to meet ambitious Net Zero Waste reduction goals by the year 2030, while reducing expenses associated with waste removal.
“We have talked to several U.S. Army commands and we are encouraged by their quick recognition of the potential of this technology and willingness to try this innovative solution to persistent waste management problems,” said retired Army Colonel Pat Kane, a senior member of Star Strategies Group.
Retired U.S. Army Colonel Townsend “Van” Fleet said the group has made presentations beyond the Department of Defense. “In restaurant chains and school systems, this technology will substantially reduce the demand for landfill and achieve costs savings much like we see for the Department of Defense,” according to Van Fleet.
The veteran business coalition believes their efforts will provide the kind of emphasis the technology needs to gain broad acceptance within DoD and help its leadership conserve resources for our nation.
