Join Viably At WasteExpo 2024 In Las Vegas

WasteExpo 2024

Join Viably at the WasteExpo 2024, North America’s largest solid waste, recycling, organics, food waste recovery, and sustainability tradeshow presented by Waste360. Taking place from May 6–9, 2024, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, WasteExpo brings together industry leaders, experts, and solution providers for four days of networking and knowledge sharing.

Join Viably In The Booth At WasteExpo

At this year’s conference, Viably will be participating as an exhibitor and presenter. We’re also excited to sponsor the Food Recovery Forum, focusing on innovative solutions for food waste prevention, reduction, and recovery. Stop by Booth 1807 to discover our equipment solutions for various waste streams, including construction & demolition (C&D), municipal solid waste (MSW), and organics and food waste.

On display in the Viably booth will be a Harp Renewables CX-2 Food Waste Biodigester. Depending on the model, these revolutionary on-site food waste recycling systems can process between 220 pounds and 5.5 tons of food waste per day, and reduce the weight and volume of food waste by up to 75% in just 24 hours without the use of water. The CX-2 is the smallest model of the CX Series Biodigesters and is the perfect solution for small businesses within the hospitality and recreation industries, like restaurants, hotels, and golf courses.

Food Recovery Forum

Food waste is one of the most pressing challenges of our time. Viably is passionate about helping to solve this challenge and is proud to sponsor the Food Recovery Forum, a track within WasteExpo’s conference program. Speakers from a wide range of organizations, including governmental, non-profit, charitable, academic, and food businesses, will share strategies, resources, and technologies to drive food waste reduction, develop a more sustainable food system, and increase recovery for other essential and beneficial uses.

Brandon Lapsys, President of Viably, will present during the “Small Scale and Modular Food Waste Recycling Technologies” session scheduled for Wednesday, May 8, from 3:00 pm to 4:15 pm. His presentation, titled “Revolutionizing Food Waste Recycling with Biodigestion for Sustainability and Profitability,” will highlight the transformative impact of Harp Renewables’ biodigester technology in mitigating food waste and decentralizing food waste processing.
