As more and more businesses are learning, an ecological mindset not only benefits the environment, it’s good for business and your bottom line. Companies who choose the Food Cycler are joining a growing movement toward zero waste, reducing environmental impact, diverting organic waste from landfills and converting the byproducts into useful components such as soil amendment and potable water. For these ecologically-minded businesses, the Food Cycler also reduces the costs and environmental impact of hauling excess food waste.
The Food Cycler conversion technology uses a combination of processes to break down the food waste. These include a chemical decomposition process called hydrolysis, combined with gasification–a process using gas with heat, pressure and steam–plus biomass to energy plants and anaerobic digestion (bacterial breakdown).
