PKL, a leading UK modular kitchen infrastructure provider, is taking on the distribution of the Garbage Guzzler, ‘a revolutionary waste digester that allows any hospital to reduce its costs and waste disposal needs’.
Manufactured in the UK, it uses bacteria to reduce organic waste, including food, cardboard, and paper packaging, coffee cups, fats and oils, ‘by 95 per cent’. PKL says the process can take as little as 24 hours, leaving an output that can be used as soil improver, as biomass fuel, ‘or can be put back through the machine to be reduced to virtually nothing’. There are two models currently available, able to digest up to 200 kg or 400 kg of waste respectively per day, with larger, ‘more bespoke’ units available if required.
MD, Lee Vines, became convinced by the machine’s viability ‘because of the huge range of advantages its unique system gives hospitals of any size’. He added: “Green concerns are becoming more of a driver behind the decisions hospitals make. However a healthcare provider chooses to use it, the machine will help reduce costs and greenhouse gas emissions, as less waste means fewer waste collections and the associated vehicle movements.”
Customers can either buy the Garbage Guzzler direct, or use the system under a contract rental agreement.
