reduction of food waste
The Soil Maker
Reduction of food waste is one of the most discussed topics nowadays. We are convinced that the key players of retail, food service, hospitality and catering like to achieve their circularity targets and become more sustainable than their competition. Taking care of your own food waste is the first step to reduce the FOOD-miles and become sustainable. Besides that, an interesting cost reduction can be realised now removal and disposal belongs to the past..
How does it work?
Soil Maker at work
The Soil Maker turns kitchen waste into valuable composted soil. It is a natural process where enzymes and activated microorganisms degrade the food waste in a period of approximately 2 weeks. 300 Kilos of waste per day will turn into 150 kilos of soil. The soil has a commercial value and can be used in the greenhouses to grow little plantlets and seedlings. Other capacities are 100 and 200 kilos per day.
The machine does not require additional (electrical) heat because the activity of microorganisms provides the energy for degradation. The Soil Makers operates full continuedly and is easy to maintain and operate.
Where is this compost used?
Plantlets and seedlings are grown in our own Urban Farming Projects.
Circularity is one of our main concerns. Therefore we have closed the loop by creating our own food management solutions!
