China Watch Blog has learnt that Advetec Holdings Ltd, based in Somerset, UK, has been awarded the first USA permit for its revolutionary machines that reduce organic waste by over 90%. Advetec in conjunction with Organic Solutions Inc. has been awarded the first and only SWORPP in the USA.
The project is the first to employ the Bio-Thermic Digester (BTD), which will be used to process mixed waste from supermarket chains and hardware stores. The organic volumes will be reduced by up to 95% and the heat generated by the microbial activity will be used to power thermo-dynamic heat exchangers to return power back to the grid. An added benefit will be the recovery of clean water for irrigation and other processes.
The BTD will deal with all types of waste without any preprocessing and the residual metals and plastic will be recovered in a clean, sterile and recyclable state for commercial resale.
This is a significant milestone in the acceptance of this technology to provide a sustainable solution to the growing waste and recycling issues in this country, and we are proud to be able to offer this package as part of our “Exciting Biological Solutions” to both the industries and the communities of the UK.
Being able to handle a variety of waste streams, the applications are wide ranging and can solve many issues currently being faced by industry up and down the county. These include:
Sewage sludge cake disposal
Mixed “black bag” household waste
Food contaminated plastic and glass
Animal waste – farms, abattoirs etc.
Food production plant waste streams (cooked and uncooked)
Green waste composting in less than three days
Restaurant and hotel waste self contained treatment
The solution solves waste stream issues at source – eliminating transport and tipping costs.
