The article focuses on the waste management practices of food operators. According to John Cummins, general manager of resident dining at Bucknell University, his department is working with the university's engineering department to convert waste from the dishroom pulper into methane and carbon dioxide to be used as a heat source or fuel. The College of Wooster in Ohio is converting its diesel fuel catering van to run on used fryer oil.
