On-Site Food Waste Composting Offers New Solution To Food Industry

Food Waste Composting

As the population of the planet grows and landfill sites are filling up we have to come up with more ingenuous ways to deal with waste.  But composting is a natural process; so why do we still fill our landfill and waste disposal systems with food waste.  This ‘waste’ should be a valuable resource for any organisation which has onsite catering facilities.  All food waste can be converted in a couple of months to a rich nutritious substance, compost, which can be fed straight back into the land.

Ridan LogoRidan composters make three different sized beasts just for this job.  All food waste can be composted; cooked, uncooked, meat, dairy and fish.  Food waste and wood pellets in a ratio of 4:1 are added each day.  A handle is turned on the end which activates a system of paddles inside which aerates the mixture. At the other end partially composted material comes out which is placed into a maturation bin for a couple of months before being ready to use.  It really is this simple.  The largest Ridan can process volumes of 400 litres of food waste per week and some organisations are so impressed with Ridan they have up to 4 large Ridans dealing with their food waste every day.  The whole system sits onsite, outside and requires no power other than the man power to turn the handle every day.  Yes it does require a little bit more work by catering and maintenance teams but I think we owe it to our planet to see beyond this little issue and together keep the world turning. We have recently had an article in recycling industry titled Garden to Table and Back.

Perks of Being a Budding Designer: Young Carlos is Planning it for the Next Generation

Poster art by Carlos

About a fortnight ago, I had a chance to speak to a brilliant young man named Carlos Rodrigues, a young designer in the making from London with big dreams and some eccentric ideas. We spoke about designing and other stuff and it turned out to be an interesting interview. Carlos goes by the handle @NGDLondon on Twitter (NGD stands for NexGen Design) and is a really interesting guy to talk to.
