As new technology emerges almost every day to clean up our environment, our Digester offers a straight-forward and affordable several technology that is simple to install and operate. We can assist in making that difference for our planet that we all look for, while saving money for our clients at the same time. A GS-Food Waste Digester can become part of this solution.

 

The aerobic digester process

About – Breaking Barriers in Food Waste Management

Unlike traditional aerobic digester machines, the GS-Food Waste Digesters doesn’t yield compost as a final product. This unique approach eliminates the need for additional waste management, reducing workload and hassle. Our tailored machines are designed to handle not only solid food waste but also liquid products like soups and sauces. Through our enzymatic process, we break down these food products into smaller, manageable components, a feat unmatched by any other liquid food aerobic digesters in the market.

Enzymatic Aerobic Digestion: Unveiling the Process

The aerobic digester’s expertise lies in its ability to break down food waste fast and efficiently through enzymatic aerobic digestion. This process harnesses the power of our special enzymes mixes in combination with our machine and a monitored process to transform complex organic compounds into simpler components.

Enzymes, the catalysts of the natural world, take center stage in this process. Our unique enzyme mixes are specially developed for the composting machine, and target specific organic molecules in the food waste, initiating their breakdown. Proteases tackle proteins, lipases address fats, etcetera. As a result, large, complex molecules are transformed into smaller, more manageable fragments.

Food waste

Food waste can be added into the machine throughout the day. There is no waiting, it is a continuous process that adapts to your daily work schedule.

The machine

All food waste is collected in the machine. The special conditions in the machine and our exclusive enzyme mixes will process your waste into waste water 24/7.

The Enzymes

Our exclusive enzyme mixes are formulated in such a way that they can optimally break down your food waste. We have developed several variations that can break down the different waste flows.

The process

The ideal conditions are created in the GS-food waste digesters so that the enzymes can do their work optimally. Temperature, moisture, movement and acidity are maintained at optimal conditions by us.

Break down

The food waste is broken down into smaller particles. This can even be done down to the level of building blocks such as amino acids, fatty acids and simple sugars.

Waste water

The waste water created in our machine can be safely discharged via the sewer to the waste water treatment plants. The 100% organic waste water can be converted into biogas at the WWTP.

Seamless Management, Remote Control

One of the key advantages of the composting machine is its remote management feature. Employees simply need to place the food waste into the machine, and we take care of the rest. Our expert team manages the machines remotely, ensuring a hassle-free experience for your staff.

Optimized Capacity for Peak Seasons

We understand the importance of having enough food waste capacity, especially during busy periods like holidays. Providing the right sized aerobic digester is essential to offering reliability even during the busiest times of the year. It’s important to note that different types of food waste decompose at varying rates. Foods like dense-fiber vegetables and chicken bones require more time for breakdown. To better serve your unique needs, we require insights into your daily waste generation volume and types, particularly during peak periods.

Comprehensive Service Agreement

Our service agreement is designed to provide comprehensive support. It includes robust assistance from our center, online monitoring, and machine adjustments. Moreover, the agreement covers the supply of enzymes and replacementof the process materials. When combined with our monthly service, the standard 2-year guarantee extends to an impressive 5 years, offering you peace of mind.

Benefits of our Aerobic digester

Our technology directly addresses several pressing environmental concerns:

  1. Reduced CO2 Emissions from Garbage Trucks:
    Traditional food waste disposal methods heavily rely on frequent collections by garbage trucks, resulting in substantial CO2 emissions. By eliminating the need for these polluting vehicles, our approach significantly reduces carbon footprint.
  2. Mitigation of Methane Emissions from Landfills:
    Food waste deposited in landfills generates substantial methane emissions, a potent greenhouse gas. By diverting food waste from landfills, our technology plays a crucial role in reducing methane emissions and combating climate change.
  3. Elimination of Unsanitary Waste Containers:
    Conventional green containers used for food waste storage often pose hygiene concerns, emitting foul odors and attracting pests. Our solution provides a cleaner, odor-free, and environmentally friendly alternative, ensuring a more pleasant waste disposal experience.

Is food waste a problem for your business?

If you are currently grappling with or concerned about food waste and compostable packaging, an aerobic digester might be the straightforward solution you have yet to explore. An aerobic digester leverages the natural breakdown of food waste by microbes. In an oxygen-rich environment, full aerobic digestion can break down food waste into carbon dioxide and water relatively quickly. Our Aerobic Digester is designed to mimic this process by converting food waste into gray water, which is then directed through existing sewer drains or stored for use as irrigation water and fertilizer.

This process is guided by the same natural laws that govern all living organisms, including our own bodies. In fact, commercial aerobic digestion technology is often likened to a “mechanical stomach” because it closely mirrors the human digestive process.

By digesting food waste on-site, you can address some of the biggest challenges associated with food waste management, such as reducing the need to transport waste to landfills. Microorganisms efficiently break down organic waste, and they do it much faster in our machines than in a landfill setting.

Our food digester for the future

For food waste and compostable packaging

The idea of using the GS-Food Waste Digester to break down plant-based packaging is fascinating. This would be a significant step in converting more usable waste into valuable resources, such as bio-gas, while simultaneously processing the food waste associated with these packaging materials in the composting machine. However, the execution of this idea presents some challenges, primarily due to the diversity of plant-based materials used for food packaging.

To achieve this goal, thorough research into the composition and properties of various plant-based materials is necessary. Additionally, we must find suitable enzymes to efficiently break down these materials. This is a time-consuming process that requires experiments and adjustments to the machine.
Several materials are already possible to break down in our machine. Like potato starch products, sugarcane pump, foamed PLA and paper pulp material.

The different building blocks

Building blocks - simple sugars, amino acids, and fatty acids

The different building blocks that come out of food waste when digested by enzymes are simple sugars, amino acids, and fatty acids.

Our machines discharge the digested food waste into the sewage that eventually ends up at a wastewater treatment plant, where all the sewage wastewater is treated.

By breaking down organic matter and releasing essential nutrients, these enzymes help improve soil fertility and promote plant growth.
