BOKASHI BRAN FOOD WASTE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
The Bokashi Bran® system has been approved by the Johannesburg Environmental Health department for use in commercial kitchens.
The key success factor to implementing the Bokashi system in your business is your commitment, as the owner / manager, to ensure food waste separation at source.
We train kitchen staff and waitrons to separate wet and dry waste. Wet waste into the specially labeled blue 50 litre drums and the dry waste into the black kitchen bins.
The food waste is then processed through the macerating machine where it is macerated and dewatered into fine particles. This is then treated with Bokashi Bran® to stop the food waste from rotting and causing unpleasant odours.
The food waste is then collected to be taken to a commercial composting facility for processing or composted on-site.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
WasteStation has a macerating unit that chops up the food waste into a fine consistency. It is then passed through a centrifugal dewatering unit before emptying the shredded food waste into a container for further processing.
The machine performs a self-clean cycle so there is no need for disassembly.
HOW MUCH CAN YOU SAVE?
It will reduce the food waste volume by up to 80% while also reducing the weight by 60%. This means reducing transport and waste removal costs.
The WasteStation is eco-friendly in that it has low operating energy costs, prepares the food waste for organic composting and reduces the carbon footprint of transporting food waste to a landfill.
FOOD WASTE TREATED WITH BOKASHI
Food waste that has been passed through the WasteStation is then treated with Bokashi Bran® to stop odours or attracting flies.
WasteStation will process 700kgs of food waste per hour. It’s ideal for commercial kitchens producing between 2 and 6 tonnes per month.
Our team will demonstrate and train staff to use the machine, and then we will train your garden staff to make organic compost or we’ll collect the food waste for onward processing.
HEALTH AND SAFETY
The WasteStation has several safety features that make it impossible for an operator to get his/her hand caught in the machine.
Bokashi Bran® is free from any chemicals so there are no health risks to employees.
HOW MUCH WATER DOES THE MACHINE USE?
The WasteStation uses 800 litres of water per tonne of food waste.
Remember, food waste generally consists of about 77% water so the WasteStation machine is actually returning the water from the food waste back into the water system.
- Liquids (including soup)
- Plastic, paper, glass (non-organic)
