Eco-Digester is purpose built to handle raw waste at the same location and same rate as it’s produced, including directly in the kitchen, reducing transport and labor costs.

Insert raw organic waste into the Eco-Digester at the pace your facility produces it, and turn it on. That’s really all there is to it. Once started, the temperature is raised to approximately 160ºF (70ºC) which activates thermophilic bacteria that accelerates an aerobic fermentation process, breaking the organic waste down to as much as 90% of its original volume within 24 hours or less.

three motors do all the work

  • 1st motor draws in oxygen to feed the aerobic process.
  • 2nd motor churns the waste to help break it down.
  • 3rd motor exhausts the air through an active carbon filter

no odors, no fumes

An active carbon filter means that there are no foul smells or noxious gases to contend with. The air can even be ventilated outside should the customer prefer.
