We convert Food Waste
into Poultry Feed

Unlike other methods of processing food waste, the Food Recycle process
uses food waste for it’s primary purpose
- just further down the food chain.

A single solution
to many many problems

Food waste has a lot of impacts on our society and our planet.
The Food Recycle process is a single solution that solves so many of these problems AND creates a new profitable industry at the same time.

Three Global Issues

The Food Recycle solution addresses three major global issues with an economically sustainable business model.

Food Waste

The Food Recycle Process provides a profitable platform for businesses to divert commercial food waste away from landfill (along with the greenhouse gas emissions created from the food waste breaking down). Unlike composting as process, the Food Recycle process produces two high value products that are in high demand (with demand projected to grow).

greenhouse gases

The Food Recycle Process diverts food waste away from landfill where it breaks down and releases methane into the atmosphere.

The Food Recycle Process produces negligible methane and carbon dioxide in the processing of the waste into high value products.

Wasted resources

By diverting the food waste away from landfill and using it for feed, the Food Recycle process in effect salvages the resources that went into creating the food - ie. the resources used to create the food that was wasted are now going to good use instead of being discarded as landfill.

Using the food waste to produce poultry feed also reduces the need for new ingredients to be grown for that very purpose, saving more resources in the process.

cost to the economy

Instead of costing the economy through wasted resources and the collection and processing of these resources, the Food Recycle process adds to the economy as it produces sought after high value products.

Biosecurity

The Food Recycle process treats all of the food waste that is processed through the facilities so that it is safe to feed to both poultry and pigs.  This removes the risk of food waste inadvertently ending up being fed to pigs and poultry and spreading disease.

biosecurity threats

This is the ONLY solution on the market to remove the threat of deadly (to animals) viruses and diseases present from food waste in a viable, cost effective (and profitable) way.

The Food Recycle process inactivates the major biosecurity risks to Poultry (Very virulent infectious bursal disease virus, Highly pathogenic avian influenza virus, Newcastle disease virus and Salmonella SP) in the processing of the food waste.

The Food Recycle process inactivates the major biosecurity risks to Pigs (Foot-and-Mouth Disease and African Swine Fever) in the processing of the food waste.

As this inactivation is part of the Food Recycle process, the profitable business model provides an incentivised opportunity to drastically reduce the potential spread of these diseases.

Food Security

The world is increasing in population, but not in arable land.  Forecasts are predicting an increase in Poultry consumption, and a decrease in capacity for production of ingredients (due to climate change).  The Food Recycle Process reduces the need for ‘virgin’ ingredients providing nutritionally quantified batches of processed poultry feed and/or ingredients.

Poultry feed security

How much poultry feed does the world need?
A lot! We could process one hundred percent of any country's food waste and still not have enough poultry feed to service the industry within that country.

Using food waste to produce poultry feed uses far less resources to produce than that of "virgin" ingredients

As a result, more arable land can be used to grow food for humans.

The Food Recycle solution

The Food Recycle process converts commercial food waste into two high-value products, with the only by-product of distilled water.

A bit about Poultry Feed...

Poultry feed is a highly calibrated product that is formulated for the type of bird species and their function (eg. egg-laying vs meat). The nutritional content of this product is very important to the industry as it it key to achieving efficiencies in both the time it takes the bird to grow as well as the ratio of feed to the amount of meat/number of eggs produced.

Some key points about poultry feed:

Poultry feed is a high-value product. It has 10-30 times the market value of compost.
Ingredients for poultry feed are in high demand. This demand is going to constantly increase with the world's growing population (using the same farming resources).
Australia produces approximately 4,000,000 tonnes of poultry feed annually. This is compared with approximately 5,000,000 tonnes of residential and commercial food waste combined.
A bit about Liquid Fertiliser...

Liquid fertiliser used for a hydroponic system contains moderate levels of nutrients such as Total Nitrogen (TN) of 100 mg/L and Total Phosphorus (TP) of 50 mg/L which promotes growth of plants.  The pH and EC levels should ideally be in the range of 5.8 to 6.5 and 1 to 3 mS/cm, respectively. It is also important that liquid fertilisers provide some essential micronutrients such as Calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg) and Potassium (K).

Liquid Fertiliser is a high-value product. It has 5-10 times the market value of compost.
The food recycle process is able to consistently produce fertilisers of various formulations for specific species of plants.
The food recycle process has extremely low levels of contaminants, making it suitable to grow new food.

How our process compares

We believe commercial composting has its place within the circular economy, but with the Food Recycle process possessing major commercial and environmental advantages over commercial composting, there is a very strong case to make it the preferred option - especially when considering the biosecurity threats the process inherently mitigates.
