Why our food digester is different

We have heard the demand from the marketplace that a machine is needed to handle food waste and biomaterials that…………………………….

– can compost food waste
– digest compostable packaging
– is able to compost the bioplastics PLA and PHA
– uses a 100% plant-based BioChips (No petroleum plastic is used)
– .gives you a detailed report of the quality of your graywater

After many years of research we found the best machine for composting food, a bio culture mix and a fossil plastic-free biochip. We are working hard on solving the last piece of the puzzle. Composting bio-plastics. We are close but not yet ready to present this solution to the market. 
Now our machines are only good food food waste. We keep you updated when we have the full solution.

Plant-based biochips

The reason why many companies are switching to plant-based packaging like PLA bottles, cups and cutlery, is that they want to step away from fossil plastic. Fossil plastic creates microplastics in the environment and microplastic creates numerous health issues for animals and humans. Many other food digesters are still using petroleum biochipshas biochips that could release microplastic into the graywater and then back into our water streams. Afterthe Biochips are replaced by new ones. the old BioChips are dumped in the garbage onto the landfill or incineration, where they create even more harmful toxiins and microplastics.

And that’s why we created our special 100% plant-based biochips for our BMD Food Digester.

Magic sauce for our food digester

In many countries, it’s not allowed to put compostable packaging (PLA-PHA) into the industrial composting waste stream/ green bin. These bins are only used for composting food waste and garden waste.
Most of the compostable packaging products are designed to compost in facilities like this, but still, they are not allowed to be processed in most industrial composting facilities.

Our goal is to offer the companies, using compostable packaging, a good alternative with the right food digester on location.

We are developing our special combination of bio-cultures. With this our BMD+ food composter can also compost many different bio-plastics and compostable packaging. Below are some of the materials our BMD+ Food Compost machine that will be able to digest. Depending on the thickness of the material, it takes longer than food waste to compost these materials. Finding the right enzyme mix for digesting compostable plastic at a low temperature is an interesting challenge. We are close to finding the solution.


PLA bottles can compost in a food digester

Make sure your not contaminating the inside of the food composter with fossil plastic. Let take PLA bottles as an example. Search for a provider that also has a PLA cap and label. PLA bottles.EU is a 100% plant-based supplier.


PHA in a food composter

Polyhydroxyalkanoaat, is a material made by micro-organisms. And more and more product will be made out of this material in the near future. It is certified for home and marine compostability. so it is also being tested to digest in our BMD+ Food Digester.


bamboo plates can digest in a food digester

Bamboo is an ideal product for a lot of food-related items like plates and cutlery. And also a material that can be put in the BMD+ aerobic food digester. Once again, it may be important to grind the bamboo items prior to putting them into the BMD+ machine.


compostable coffe caps

The use of hemp is getting more widespread in the food packaging industry. Keep in mind that the full product is made from this plant-based material.


bagasse can compost in a food composter

100% non-toxic sustainable plant byproducts, like sugarcane are being used for food containers and cups. They are Ideal as catering, food-truck, bakery, restaurant supplies, meal-prep and take-out.

Pressed leaf

banana leaf plates can compost in a food digester

banana leaf plates are another candidate for composting in a BMD + Food Digester
Pressed banana or bamboo leaves are a products that are getting more popular, because more and more countries have placed bans on single-use plastic plates.

FSC kraft

FSC kraft can compost in a food digester

FSC Kraft will also be trialed in our BMD+ composter
Popular in the fast-food industry and food delivery. Food boxes are the most popular products. It can be composted in combination with a large amount of food waste.

How can we/ our food difester help?

Every business that has food, bioplastic, and compostable packaging waste is different and needs a tailor-made solution to handle the waste stream in a correct way. In some cases, aerobic digestion may not be the best option. Anaerobic digestion – incineration or recycling of the waste stream may be a better option than using a food digester. We can support you in making the right choice.

When we decide together, that a food digester is the best solution for your company we will look at what machine can work for you – now and in the future. Do you need one large machine at a central point in the building? or is it better to use more, but smaller food digesters at every individual food preparation or collection point.

Besides the food digester, we can also support you in choosing the right compostable packaging material for your needs. We have several years of experience and a wide network of partners that can supply, make, design, and produce the right solutions for you. Let’s work together in making the world a bit better.
