Food composter

We are creating a food composter that can digest; food waste – bioplastics (PLA-PHA), and compostable packaging. With our special magic sauce (Bio cultures) and plant-based bio-chips the food digester we supply is unique in the market. The latst tests are being done and we expect to ship the first machines Q4 - 2022.

Food composter - Food waste - A big problem

landfill

Food waste destined for landfills accounts for 30-40% of all solid waste disposal in North America.

garbage truck

Garbage trucks use over 1.5 billion gallons of diesel fuel to cart food waste to North American landfills each year.

earth

The contribution of food waste emissions to global warming is almost equivalent (87%) to global road transport emissions.

food waste

Wasting food is worse than total emissions from flying (1.9%), plastic production (3.8%), and oil extraction (3.8%).

Our Food composter

FOOD COMPOSTER FOR: FOOD WASTE - BIOPLASTIC - PLANT-BASED PACKAGING

In most countries, it’s not allowed to put PLA cups, PLA bottles, cutlery, and other products that are compostable, into the industrial composting waste stream (green bin). The different compostable packaging products are designed to compost in facilities like this, but still are not allowed to be composted in an industrial composting facility. According to us, and many other companies, clients, and consumers, this is a weird situation.

We wanted to solve this problem and supply the companies using compostable packaging – because they want to step away from the polluting fossil plastic products – a good alternative.

What better way to create a food composter that can compost all different kinds of food, bioplastics, and compostable material right on the site where they are used. PLA, PHA, bagasse, hemp, bamboo, dried banana leaves, starch, and many other compostable materials can finally be composted in one machine, together with all your food waste.

Some of the end-of-life solutions that plant-based products have:

As the need for us to become more sustainable in our businesses and daily lives becomes more obvious, there are several fantastic technologies that can assist us in making a difference for our planet while also saving money. Food composters can be part of this solution.
If food waste and/or compostable packaging is a problem you’re already dealing with or worried about it. Food composters may be the simple answer you’ve yet to discover. An food digester uses the natural breakdown of food waste by microbes. Full aerobic digestion would break down food waste into carbon dioxide and water in a relatively short amount of time in an oxygenated environment. Our food composters try to replicate this process by turning food waste – compostable packaging and PLA/PHA into a liquid effluent that can be deposited into current sewer systems – or stored to use as furtilizer.

All living species, including our own bodies, follow the same laws that control this process. In fact, commercial aerobic digestion technology is sometimes referred to as a “mechanical stomach” since it closely resembles the human digestive process.

Food waste digestion aids in the management of organic waste where it is created. Choosing to treat your food and compostable packaging waste on site can help you address some of the major food waste challenges, such as eliminating the need for waste to be trucked to a landfill.
Microorganisms efficiently degrade organic waste, and they do it significantly faster in our machine than natural breakdown. It’s also much less destructive to the environment.
