In an on-site food waste treatment system, the conveyor is typically used to transport food waste from the point of generation (such as a restaurant, hotel, or hospital) to the treatment area. The conveyor can be used to transport the food waste to a sorting station, where it is separated into different categories based on its type and composition.
Once the food waste has been sorted, it can be fed into the shredder through belt conveyor, which is a machine that reduces the size of the material. The shredder can be used to break down the food waste into smaller pieces, making it easier to process and manage.
After the food waste has been shredded, it can be fed into the treatment machine through screw conveyor, where it is processed using a variety of technologies. These technologies can include anaerobic digestion, composting, and in-vessel composting.
In anaerobic digestion, microorganisms break down the organic matter in the food waste in the absence of oxygen, producing methane and a nutrient-rich byproduct that can be used as a soil amendment or fertiliser. In composting, microorganisms break down the organic matter in the food waste, producing a nutrient-rich soil amendment. In in-vessel composting, the food waste is placed in a container or vessel and processed using mechanical and biological processes to break down the organic matter.
The final product of the treatment process is a nutrient-rich by product that can be used as a soil amendment or fertiliser. Using an on-site food waste treatment system can help to reduce the environmental impact of food waste by diverting it from landfills, where it can contribute to methane emissions. It can also help to reduce the costs associated with transporting and disposing of food waste.
