State of the art, patented technology
Current commercial food waste digesters in the marketplace have a waste digestion efficiency of 60 – 65% and discharge heavily contaminated effluent into municipal sewers. Water parameters like Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD), Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), Total Suspended Solids (TSS), Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOG), are often several times in excess of municipal effluent sewer discharge standards. These are all parameters that must be reduced in order to prevent fees or fines associated with grey water discharge.
Micron Waste Technologies has developed patented technology (US10144044) to manage organic waste on-site and convert it into clean water. Our aerobic organic digester has micro-oxygen cubicle (MOC) technology to enhance the aerobic digestion efficiency of microorganisms up to 95%. The remaining 5% undigested food particles are further treated by a water treatment process, converting greywater into clean water.
The clean water generated in this process can be recycled or reused. Unlike other food waste systems, our technology can feature a closed loop system where effluent released from the food digester is processed by our patented biotechnology, then recycled back into the system. The effluent parameters such as BOD, COD, TSS, FOG, colour, and odour are reduced so that the water becomes clean, meeting the guidelines set out in municipal wastewater bylaws.
Transforming organic waste to clean water
Micron’s technology turns organic waste into clean water using a 4-step process:
