Food digester

The BMD Team is pleased to present our food digester. With a processing capacity from 10 kilos up to 10.000 kilos a day, our food composter is suitable for almost every organization that works with food. Take a look at our website and get in touch with a better way for solving the food waste problems.

Our food digester

Our aerobic food digester can be used 24/7 and food waste can be added at any time during that day. This prevents overloading the food digester when all the food waste from one day is added all at once. There are a lot of reasons why one food waste type digests more quickly than another one. Most of the food waste will digest within 24 hours. Size, hardness of the product, and amount of water in the product are some of the reasons why one organic product composts more rapidly than others.

For compostable packaging and bioplastic, there are differences in composting time. Especially when the material is thicker and is a larger size. Therefore, it will most likely take longer to digest PLA and compostable packaging in our BMD+ food composters than it does in the regular models that compost food waste only.

Food waste facts

Food waste destined for landfills accounts for 30-40% of all solid waste disposal in North America.

Garbage trucks use over 1.5 billion gallons of diesel fuel to cart food waste to North American landfills each year.

Every 100 pounds of food waste in our landfills sends 8 pounds of methane into the atmosphere. Over 20 years, methane has 86 times the global warming effect of carbon dioxide.

The contribution of food waste emissions to global warming is almost equivalent (87%) to global road transport emissions.

How it works

Food waste into water

Our BMD Food Composter digests all the food waste within 24 hours into liquid gray water. No need to hassle with solid compost. Just connect our food digester to the existing sewage piping system and your worries about food waste are over.

Start the process

Fill the BMD with Bio Material waste. And incorporate our unique microbial blend.

The enzymes do their thing

To aid aerobic digestion, the digestor oxygenates food waste. It’s 24/7 cycle continues the digestion process.

24/48 ongoing digestion process

Food waste is digested and broken down into tiny bits before being discharged as wastewater.

Multiple end of life solutions

The wastewater is filtered through a screen and grease arrestor before being discharged into the existing plumbing system.

Our food composter

Estimates suggest the world’s total food waste is around 1.3 billion tonnes. These losses occur at all stages of production, from pre-harvest on the farm through to post-harvest losses during processing, distribution, retailing and consumption.

The vast majority of this food waste is produced at the point of consumption, whether it is in cafeterias, canteens, or restaurants. Some of this waste can be avoided, but some is unavoidable because it consists of non-edible portions of the product. The process of composting food with a food waste digester/composter machine has been developed as a result of a better understanding of the origins and fates of unconsumed food, with prevention as the primary goal and only material that is inappropriate for human or animal consumption becoming garbage. Our BMD food composter composts food waste on-site in 24 hours with no odor or noise. It significantly reduces the cost to dispose of and manage waste food. It also eliminates smells, mess, and pests from your trash bins. By using the food digester, you are reducing the amount of space and energy needed to remove the unwanted food scraps from your facility. It doesn’t need collecting, transporting, or piling up in a landfill.

Aerobic - Anaerobic

Since the early 1950s, researchers have been studying aerobic digestion, and since the 1980s, many sewage treatment plants have used a combination of aerobic and anaerobic digestion. Modern food composters are now an accessible, sustainable, and cost-effective solution for organic food waste disposal in most organizations.

Composting food waste process:
Aerobic digestion, on the other hand, should not be confused with anaerobic digestion. Anaerobic digestion, while similar to aerobic digestion, does not require oxygen and is thus slower and less effective. Anaerobic digestion also produces methane, a harmful greenhouse gas that we want to avoid, as well as hydrogen sulfide, also known as “rotten egg gas.” To cope with food waste, food waste digesters use aerobic digestion.

If food waste and/or compostable packaging is a problem you’re already dealing with or worried about, an aerobic digester may be the simple answer you’ve yet to discover. A food digester facilitates the natural breakdown of food waste by microbes. Full aerobic digestion would break down food waste into carbon dioxide and water in a relatively short amount of time in an oxygenated environment. Our BMD Aerobic Digester tries to replicate this process by turning food waste into gray water and sending it through the existing sewer drain – or storing it to use as irrigation water and fertilizer.
All living species, including our bodies, follow the same laws that control this process. In fact, commercial aerobic digestion technology is sometimes referred to as a “mechanical stomach” since it closely resembles the human digestive process.
Food waste digestion aids in the management of organic waste where it is created. Choosing to treat your food and compostable packaging waste on-site can help you address some of the major food waste challenges, such as eliminating the need for waste to be hauled to a landfill.
Microorganisms efficiently degrade organic waste and do it significantly faster in our BMD machines than in a landfill breakdown.
