NHS Lothian Chooses Eco-Smart Food Waste Dryer for St. John's Hospital, Livingston

The NHS in Scotland has chosen the Eco-Smart Food Waste Dryer as the solution for food waste at St John’s Hospital in Livingston.

Bergmann Direct were appointed to the NHS Scotland Food Waste Solutions Framework Tender in 2015. The first installation was at St John’s Hospital in Livingston. Since the banning of food waste macerators in Scotland in 2015, all hospitals and other large food waste producers have had to put in other solutions to avoid putting food waste down the drain.

The hospital produces around 160kg of food waste a day which the Eco-Smart dries to a residue 10 to 15% of its original weight and volume.
