High-speed food waste recycling machine introduced

Recently introduced in North America, the eCorect is a high-speed food waste recycling machine designed to rapidly dehydrate food waste along with compostable disposables. The machine produces a humus-rich soil amendment without the use of enzymes, fresh water or venting and with no other byproducts, resulting in zero sewer and landfill impact. “Average Americans throw away 475 pounds of food waste every year, according to a recent study,” said Lin Sensenig, So-mat Company general manager. “The economic cost to dispose of food waste and food scraps will continue to increase. The eCorect machine reduces the cost of trash removal by reducing the weight and volume of the trash, thus reducing operating costs for our customers.” The eCorect machine reduces the weight and volume of food waste and scraps by 80 to 90 percent and recycles those food wastes into a high-quality organic soil amendment in less than 24 hours. Featuring an integrated revolutionary odour management system and high-efficiency heat recovery system, the eCorect can be fed any type of food waste. “This product finally closes the ‘waste handling’ circle – food to waste, and waste to food,” Sensenig said. Easy to install, operate and maintain, the eCorect does not require plumbing connections or ventilation, and units also require low energy consumption.
