First Choice Catering Spares, which offers solutions to the commercial catering sector, showcased a fully automated food waste decomposition system developed by US-based Enviro- Pure Systems.
The system rapidly breaks down and eliminates food waste at source.
Food waste is broken down in a submersed water-based environment, producing a grey water by-product that meets or exceeds regulatory standards for safe disposal into municipal waste water systems. It uses a biodegradable BioMix additive, an all-natural vitamin extract (not bacteria or enzymes) to accelerate the decomposition process.
The result is complete elimination of food waste in 24 hours.
The system comes in a variety of sizes, with capacities ranging from 54kg to more than 3,000kg a day. It can be stand-alone or integrated into a building-wide system with a central unit taking waste from remote stations installed in different parts of a building such as the dish wash and food prep areas.
