Food waste is placed inside a food dehydrator where it goes through a fully automatic process of dehydration, sterilisation and volume reduction.
No additives are required – no water, no sawdust, no enzymes.
The equipment requires only the input of electrical power (or gas) for motors and heat energy.
Food waste is simply loaded and the process thereafter is automatic and takes approximately 8 to 10 hours to complete. At the end of the process, the machine is emptied completely and is immediately ready to receive the next load. The machine can be loaded and run seven days a week – no need for any “lay days” with this process.
Everything goes in; meat, fish, fruit, vegetables, coffee grinds, flower displays. The entire procedure happens in a closed reactor chamber so that odour issues are non-existent.
The product from this system will be utilised as a directly-applied fertiliser, a pelletised fertiliser or as a compost enhancer. Instead of the greenhouse gases and leachate that would be generated in landfill, the food waste we treat is being converted into a fantastic, sustainable resource.
