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.
