NHS Lothian installed an Eco-Smart ES300 Food Waste Dryer at St John's Hospital in Livingston to deal with all their waste food. The decision follows the banning of macerators from January 1 2015 and the requirement of all public sector organisations not deemed as 'rural' to make alternative arrangements for disposal. Food waste macerators dispose of food waste into the sewage system and cause the build up of fats in the drains.
The ES300 dries the 160kg of food waste at St John's hospital in 14 to 15 hours. All food waste goes in with the exception of large bone joints.
