Food waste is introduced to a shredder. Here, the waste is broken down into small particles to increase the efficiency of the digestion process.
In the next stage, Micron’s proprietary mix of enzymes and microbes break down the waste. Following this process, the water is 95% clean.
The water undergoes a final water treatment process to reduce wastewater parameters to municipally accepted standards. Pathogens and toxins are removed, and the water is 99.94% clean.
The water can be reused for the process in a closed loop system, or used for other purposes such as irrigation. It is also safe to release into municipal sewers without incurring excess pollution fees.
