If you collected the food waste of every Australian for an entire year, it would take 450,000 garbage trucks to take it all away. Placed end to end, this convoy of waste would bridge the gap between Australia and New Zealand more than three times over. The methane gas emissions from our food waste is increasingly being recognised as far more harmful to our planet than carbon - in fact 25 times more damaging than carbon dioxide (CO2) as a greenhouse gas.
On a global scale, it is estimated that food waste currently causes 14% of the world's Greenhouse gas emissions. Recognising this as a major issue, governments worldwide are implementing legislation to not only combat this waste epidemic but to also turn our waste into a positive solution.
It is estimated that approximately 3.2 tonnes of landfill gas emissions are prevented for every two tonnes of food waste converted and diverted from landfill sites. The WasteMaster conversion process diverts putrescible food waste from landfill, from being flushed into the sewer system or incinerated, helping to reduce the future global burden of greenhouse gas emissions.
For every 500kg of food waste loaded into the system, WasteMaster outputs just 100kg of compost-like residual material which can be used for clean fuel for power generation through anaerobic digestion, and other purposes depending on the feed stock loaded.
WasteMaster develops, supplies and manages innovative, safe, efficient and environmentally beneficial on-site solutions for the conversion and re-purposing of putrescible organic waste into reusable resources.
WasteMaster supports customers with process improvements to deliver savings in all aspects of their organic waste management, and to reduce the overall impact of food waste disposal both on their businesses and the Environment.
Whether you are a food processor or manufacturer, hospital or other large catering institution, restaurant or general hospitality provider, WasteMaster has the solution for reducing your food waste disposal burden.
