Military bases, whether on land or at sea, pose unique challenges for those concerned with food disposal. The vast amounts of food waste generated by the base’s personnel must be disposed of in a sanitary fashion. On land, that typically means dumping large quantities into landfills where it emits methane gas and attracts vermin and pests. At sea, the problem is compounded by the problem of what to do with all this waste until the next port is reached.
Food Cycler to the rescue. These space-saving units reduce vast volumes of organic waste by as much as 93%, turning what’s left into clean, sterilized, reusable soil amendment. And of course, less waste means fewer odors and sanitation problems in-between ports. Equally important, over time, the reduction in hauling costs should more than offset the initial equipment investment.
