Compostech is behind the development of a new system for recycling food waste in large kitchens, canteens, institutions and restaurants. Our idea led to the design of the ComposTech system in order to decrease the current rate of food waste generation. ComposTech food recycler is a new brand of high-tech kitchen appliance to reduce food waste by over two-third its original volume through a fully automated process. It is a container that serves as garbage disposal for food waste in large kitchens. Our solution transforms food waste into fertilisers directly in the kitchen within less than 48 hours against normal 3 weeks.
All restaurants and kitchens have food waste and need a way to get rid of it.
The amount of food waste differs, depending on size of the kitchen, although in most this amounts to over 300 kg each month. In other words, each kitchen is spending between 800 and 2000 DKK each month to have their food waste removed. Given the consistently large rate of food waste, most institutions desire to reduce not only their own food waste, but also the amount they spend on associated costs.
Food waste in large kitchens, canteens and restaurants is due to lack of planning of purchases, storage requirements, cooking and overproduction in buffets. Large kitchens, canteens and restaurants pay lots of money to get rid of waste. Our solution allows large kitchens to convert food waste quickly and efficiently into the kitchen in a closed container. With our solution, large kitchens will be able to make money on food waste instead of having to pay for disposal of the waste. There are significant amounts of food waste from large kitchens, institutions, restaurants of 60,000 tonnes alone in DK and 11 million tonnes
in the EU.
