A compact and economical food waste disposal system
Some 30 percent of global food production ends up as waste – an alarming figure that is prompting increasing calls for action. The new WasteStar CC® is an important new addition to the food waste disposal systems market, offering a more pragmatic and practical way of dealing with food waste.
The WasteStar CC® is a clean and simple solution for restaurants, hotels, staff canteens, student cafeterias, hospitals, retirement homes and care facilities. It's a great choice for anyone who believes in disposing of food waste as efficiently as possible while maximising hygiene. Simply tip the food waste and organic leftovers into the chute (don't worry, it can even handle seafood shells, crustacean exoskeletons, and bones!) and the built-in macerator will shred it all into a homogeneous biomass, forming a valuable substrate. This mixture is periodically pumped into a separate collection tank to await removal. Tankers collect the biomass and transport it to biogas, composting or sewage plants, creating a sustainable recycling loop.
- No open buckets or bins of food waste to move around
- No unpleasant odours
- No flies, vermin or mould spores

The financial benefits of the WasteStar CC®
The WasteStar CC® food waste disposal unit is impressively cheap to run. It offers outstandingly low disposal costs and creates a fully prepared substrate which can be used to produce valuable energy.
Example: Just 1 m³ of substrate is all it takes to produce some 60 m³ of methane, which corresponds to approximately 60 litres of heating oil or diesel equivalent.
That's enough to fuel a car for some 850 kilometres without causing any extra environmental impact.
