Bergmann Direct have supplied two ES300 Eco-Smart Food Waste Dryers to the Crown Estate for use at St. James’s Market. Food waste is collected at all the outlets in the market and taken to their underground transfer station in St James’s for processing before being taken on to anaerobic digestion.
The ES300 Eco-Smart Food Waste Dryer handles up to 200kg of preparation and post-consumer food waste per overnight cycle, reducing the final volume and weight by 80%, by extracting the water. Food waste is approximately 80% water. The resultant dry residue is collected by Bywaters under contract and taken to Bio-Collector’s anaerobic digestion facility in Mitcham, Surrey.
By drying the food waste, the number of vehicle movements is significantly reduced. The dry residue is virtually odourless and because it has been sterilised it eliminates the dangers from vermin which are inherent with fresh food waste going off.
