The food recycling equipment is installed on-site (eliminating waste transport costs and emissions) and reduces the volume of food waste, as well as re-purposing a range of organic inputs into a nutrient-rich organic soil enhancer.
This fertiliser is scientifically proven to improve soil condition and plant health.
In using the SoilFood™ System, organic waste is diverted from landfill, thereby reducing methane and leachate created from rotting organic matter.
Commercial Food Waste Management
Often thought of as a food waste composting machine, our equipment works by heating and shredding the food waste. The process dehydrates all kinds of organic food waste - it's exceptionally good at recycling food scraps from commercial kitchens that can then be added to compost - a great alternative to a digester.
Organic Food Recycling
A controlled dehydration process is carried out inside the food waste recycling machine to evaporate the moisture content. The sterile moisture is condensed, ready for use in irrigation or any other grey-water applications. This is another key element that differentiates our technology from food waste digesters.
The solid product remaining is a dry biomass that is only 10 - 15% of the original volume of the waste, and is rich in concentrated nutrients. It is sterile and free from weeds, seeds and pathogens, making it an ideal soil amendment.
Composting Waste Management Made Easy
The biomass is also suitable for use in Australia as a compost enhancer and as a component of biomass fuels. Its important to note that we use the term "compost enhancer" - this product is concentrated and provides far more nutrients than compost. Again, often thought of as a waste to compost machine. No more putting food in the bin!
It's easy to see why people often think this is an electric compost machine - it is a machine that processes food waste effectively, and makes a product similar to compost - with far more nutrients. SoilFood! If you choose the electric food waste recycler unit, its possible to power the machine using renewable electricity. Gas models are also available.
Food Recycling Company
Is your business looking for a food recycling company? Eco Guardians food waste management system is perfect for commercial kitchen food waste. It is a proven technology current in use Australia wide, including Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide with units at many remote locations, such as mine sites and offshore islands.
Nutrient rich fertiliser:
The SoilFood™ System produces a nutrient-rich, high-quality organic fertiliser that can be used on gardens and crops, produced from kitchen waste and food scraps
Reduction of methane and leachate:
Implementation of the SoilFood™ System ensures a reduction of organic waste in landfill. This saves landfill space for other purposes and eliminates anaerobic rotting of the waste which would have generated methane and leachate.
Reducing carbon emissions:
Using the SoilFood™ System machine eliminates the carbon emissions that would otherwise result from transporting the waste to disposal sites
Grey water harvesting:
The SoilFood™ System machine generates condensed water that can be harvested and used as grey water within your business.
The SoilFood™ System technology requires no additives such as water, wood chips or microbes for processing the food waste.- setting our food organics recycling apart from digesters.
Economic pay back:
As well as the other benefits, there’s the potential for cost-savings due to the long-term reduction or elimination of the fees involved in hiring skips or bins for waste removal and disposal.
Federal and State Governments are increasingly willing to utilise the income from landfill levies to finance initiatives to encourage diversion of organic waste from landfill.
Examples of this include: the NSW EPA Bin Trim Rebate scheme under which Eco Guardians is accredited as an assessor - we can help your business to apply.
Sustainability Victoria also offers funding towards the implementation of diversion systems.
