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 also provide a footfall analysis of waste that helps us integrate the system as seamlessly as possible, and a site survey to set out the plan clearly.

Points of discussion include:

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

separator 2

iD-R-500 is a compact, accelerated food waste aerobic digestion system designed to process organic waste on-site. It is equipped with a loading hopper-sized to accommodate approximately one-third of your daily input in a single load as a buffer – you don’t have to ever worry about overloading!

An integrated shredder rationalises your waste to smaller bite-size pieces to assist with digestion, much like when we chew our food after which the process of advanced aerobic digestion begins.

A unique blend of naturally occurring bacteria and carefully balanced climatic conditions support the process. Within 24 hours, the waste is reduced by up to 70% to digestate, the low moisture, soil-like compound.

The whole process is automated and designed to seamlessly integrate with your existing processes with minimal operator input, i.e., simply load the hopper and walk away. If you have opted for the ReS module, this digestate is fed into the systems feed unit for conversion to renewable energy.

Cost savings and potential revenue

As with all Waste2ES systems, iD-R-500, you can improve your bottom line by reducing the cost of waste disposal, cleaning up the process of food waste, and enhancing your recycling performance.
