Food waste, regardless of origin, is either disposed of in landfills or processed biologically or chemically to reduce environmental issues. It is being addressed as a resource by forthcoming green technologies such as anaerobic digestion and chemical manufacturing, and potential future directions.
What is a domestic food waste?
Domestic Food Waste is defined as waste produced by personal, non-commercial activities typically associated with meal preparation in a residential kitchen, such as meat, poultry, fish, vegetable, fruit, grain, or dairy wastes produced by storing, preparing, cooking, serving, dispensing, or canning household food for personal use.
What is a domestic food waste recyclers?
A domestic Food Waste Recycler is a mechanical unit that is used for the recycling of food waste. These recyclers employ a three-stage cycle to break down meal waste: drying, grinding and cycling. It is a one-of-a-kind drying process that turns food waste into dry output in a matter of hours, reducing the weight and volume of the original waste by up to 90%.
Another technique of recycling food waste is through anaerobic digestion. In the lack of oxygen, it uses microorganisms to break down food waste inside an enclosed environment. It emits methane as it decomposes which is collected, processed into biogas and used to generate electricity. It also creates a nutrient-rich digestate that may be utilized in agriculture as a fertilizer and to restore soil.
Types of food waste
1-Which can be fed into the machine:
Meat and bones from animals
A fish bone
Plants and Fruit
2-Which cannot be put it into the machine:
BILL FOR ELECTRICITY
The power consumption for the 100KG/Day model is only 0.48 KW (480Watt), which is the same as a washing machine; 24 hours continuous usage costs 11.5 KWH. For smaller models, only 65Watt (0.065KW), 24 hours continuous consumption cost 1.56 KWH.
Advantages of using Domestic Food waste recyclers
1: It saves important resources.
2: It saves money.
3: It is a compact and modular plant, fit for all small operations.
4: It is easy to carry and can easily be reallocated.
5: It produces high-quality fertilizers.
6: It reduces carbon emissions and methane gas in the environment.
How can Netsol Water help?
We produce waste-to-energy technology that benefits the environment. Our food recyclers convert organic waste into fertilizers which can be put to use for agricultural purposes. They are a modular and scalable technology that is excellent for small and medium-scale locations.
