- November 14, 2008 - Nov. 15 is America Recycles Day. Ted's Montana Grill, the eco-friendly restaurant company founded by media entrepreneur, philanthropist and environmentalist Ted Turner, has begun testing new waste disposal equipment in Atlanta.
The Organic Waste Management System by Fox Pollution Systems, the FoxSMB-2 equipment extracts liquids from food waste to reduce the weight of garbage produced in restaurants. For example, 15 pounds of food waste can be reduced to just two pounds of solid waste once the liquid has been extracted. Ted's Montana Grill is studying this new technology for a possible expansion into more restaurants in 2009.
Shown here, Jeffrey Ragland of the Ted's Montana Grill restaurant in Atlanta on Peachtree Road places food into the FoxSBM-2 unit for liquid extraction. www.tedsmontanagrill.com.
