Description or Purpose
On site composting of organic waste using an automated process producing Class A compost in weeks
Material including cooked and uncooked food waste is fed into a sealed rotating composter which includes a shredder, a mixer and an automatic spraying system.The internal environment of the machine is computer controlled to ensure the ideal conditions are created to promote the aerobic process. This is NOT a dehydration or drying unit. The process is 100% natural with insignificant energy requirements.
The process is odour free and clean. It is leachate free as all the water is used in the composting process.The unit can be placed next to the kitchens, in the basement or any other convenient place.
Customers include schools, universities, supermarkets, shopping centres, airports, restaurants and hotels.

While there is a Compost Exemption (2014) it is important to note that
drying or dehydrating food waste, or any other compostable waste, is specifically excluded from consideration under this exemption. Drying or dehydrating
equipment uses externally supplied energy to heat and ventilate food waste or any other compostable waste in order to rapidly dry the waste material over
a short time period (typically 24 to 48 hours), either with or without the addition of an inoculum. If you are interested in this type of equipment you
should refer to the resource recovery exemptions for information on lawful use of outputs.
