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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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:
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).
