Benefits of the iD-R-5K Compact AD
Create energy from your food waste
Eliminate food waste disposal costs
Packaged food waste - no problem
If you choose to include our i-FDR Flexidry depackaging system at the start of the process, packaged food waste can be included in the system feed. This innovative technology carefully separates the packaging from the organic food waste, leaving two viable recycling streams. Reduced handling of food waste increases efficiency by minimising operational time and maximising the environmental benefits.

Our initial discussions with you will help us assess your waste stream. We will check for variables that allow us to identify the system best suited for your establishment.
We provide an analysis of your food waste arising, energy consumption and demand profile. The logistical analysis will help us define a system that will integrate seamlessly into your existing operation.
We will discuss with you:
Following the analysis from The Fact Find, we will present you with two commercial options to choose from - outright purchase or rental.
Delivery, installation, and commissioning
Our turnkey offer includes service and support. You have no exposure to breakdown costs, parts and labour or digestate disposal.
How it works
iD-R-5K is a compact anaerobic digestion system designed to process organic waste on-site across many environments. Unlike conventional farm-based AD, our iD-R-5K is a high solids (dry) processor which is highly efficient and well-suited to medium to large scale waste producers.
Equipped with a load buffer system sized to accommodate, the continual process of anaerobic digestion converts organic matter into biogas which can be deployed in several ways. The primary use of the biogas is conversion-to-renewable energy via the integral CHP unit which outputs electricity, heat and hot water.
The post-process digestate is extracted from the system via a pasteurisation module which results in a PAS110-compliant organic fertiliser suitable for land application. This can be as a single component or as a two-component output (dry and liquid).
The whole process is automated and designed to operate continuously and be integrated with your existing infrastructure to maximise efficiencies and processes with minimal operator input.
Revenue and cost savings
Put simply, iD-R-5K generates energy from your food waste on-site for your own use.
Converting food waste via the iD-R-5K CompactAD creates value and income for your P&L. It provides a revenue opportunity for renewable energy for your LAN or as an export to the National Grid. The PAS110-compliant digestate can also be a source of revenue as an organic fertiliser (this is subject to a pasteurisation module).
