Strategies for Organic Waste
Government agencies around the world are enacting new restrictions on the disposal of food waste. Food waste and other organic waste disposed of in landfills produces methane, a greenhouse gas, as it decomposes. The amount of food waste has been increasing dramatically over the last several decades and some estimates indicate that as much as 40% of food in the US is thrown away. Composting or using food and other organic waste as feed stock for an anaerobic digester are two of the common alternatives to landfill. Both methods require food waste grinders to pre-condition the organic waste materials to make the processes more efficient.
Food Waste Grinders
Monster Industrial grinders are a perfect fit for food waste shredding. Saving on transport costs by reducing the food waste volume, increasing surface area of the food waste to enhance digestion process efficiency or protecting pumping equipment from trash and debris are all perfect fits for, JWC SHRED and HYDRO grinders. Unfortunately source sorting of pre and post-consumer foods waste is not perfect. JWC’s grinders are tough enough to handle the unexpected materials like wood, flatware, and other trash.
OEM Food Waste Shredders
JWC can also partner with OEM manufacturers of food waste disposal equipment to provide size reduction technology. The 1-SHRED and 1-HYDRO products are an excellent alternative to macerators which cannot effectively handle the tougher solids. Also JWC’s grinders do not require a constant flow of water to flush the cutting area like a macerator of food disposer system.
- Meet new regulations and minimize waste disposal costs by grinding up organic waste and sending it to be composted
- Handle the unexpected debris in food waste like wood, flatware and other debris
- Enhance biogas production through increasing food surface area in anaerobic digestion
- Lower water usage compared to macerators or food waste disposers
