Some methods of disposal of unsold, out of date food involve shredding and macerating the food whilst it is still in its packaging. This mix of food and its packaging is then spread on the farm land, as fertiliser. This results in the plastic packaging washing out of the land, directly into the water courses.
Our de-packaging system removes all plastic packaging from the food and it goes to an incinerator which emits no harmful gasses. Here the packaging helps to fuel electricity generators that are connected to the National Grid.
The food leaves the machine crumbed and ready to feed to farm animals and is below the inclusion limits set by trading standards. We achieve a 95% recovery of food and packaging, with a recycling route for all products.
Our gate fee is significantly less than A.D. (anaerobic digester) and composting, and in some cases, may be free.
