Did you know that food waste from Notre Dame’s dining halls is broken down into a slurry by one of three Grind2Waste systems? This waste is then delivered to Homestead Dairy in Plymouth, Indiana, where a digester converts the food waste into biogas for use in generators, while the liquid byproduct is used as fertilizer and the solids become bedding for cows. Tour the farm and learn more about this important conversion process.
This event is about 2 hours and 20 minutes long with a 40-minute drive each way and 1-hour tour/presentation.
