The food recycling machine is installed on-site (eliminating waste transport costs and emissions) and significantly reduces the volume of food waste, as well as converting any remaining food waste into a nutrient-rich organic soil enhancer.
This fertiliser (SoilFood™) 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.
Manufactured for us by Gaia we have a wide range of models to suit your application from as little as 30kg/day all the way up to 2000.
Commercial Food Waste Solutions
Sometimes thought of as a food waste composting machine, our equipment rather works by mechanical action 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 used as organic fertiliser or blended with compost - a great alternative to a digester that discharges the contents to sewer.
GAIA Rotary Food Waste Dehydrator
A controlled dehydration process is carried out inside the food waste recycling machine while crushing, shredding and deodorising to reduce the moisture content. The resulting condensate is sterile and safe to discharge without further treatment. Alternatively ready for use grey-water applications. This is another key element that differentiates our GAIA technology from other food waste systems/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. Due to the high operating temperature weeds and seeds are sterilised and pathogens eliminated, making it an ideal soil amendment ready for immediate use.
Food Waste Management Made Easy
Imagine that rather than putting your unavoidable food waste in the bin you put it into an always ready recycler. Simple to use and fully automated your teams wont need a lot of additional time to manage the process. Being a batch process it doesn't matter if you operate 7 days or close on weekends the machine is always ready to process. Each batch is fully unloaded and you simply start again with no additives getting a result in as little as 9 hours.
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 that looks similar to compost - but the comparison ends there. SoilFood™ requires no maturation period before use and generally has a higher nutrient profile as a fertiliser! If you prefer compost don't worry we can also help with our range of Rocket in-vessel composters.
Food Waste Recycling Company
Is your business looking for food recycling equipment? 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.
