HOSPITALS

Hospitals include high-capacity restaurants and 2 to 3 meals per day. The production of organic waste from the kitchens as well as the pruning of the green spaces is a huge source of organic and green waste that ends up in the common bin. The main categories are defined as green (garden) wasterecyclable and organic waste (kitchen waste).

Garden Waste

The ideal way to manage all garden waste is composting. The compost produced is a soil conditioner for all green areas but mainly for the organic vegetable garden where materials used in the kitchen are produced. Composting can be done in:

• Composting Bins

Garden composting bins are based on the process of aerobic composting. In aerobic composting of green waste we essentially imitate and accelerate the processes of nature to produce compost. The process will take about 3 months until the first product is ready.

• In-Vessel Composting

Accelerated composting with ROCKET units is the ideal solution for the management of kitchen and garden waste. All waste is converted to rich compost within 2 weeks with minimal energy consumption. Easy to use, clean process without unpleasant odors.

An alternative way to deal with green waste is the method of volume reduction. The ideal means to achieve this are OHASHI shredders.

• Shredders

Shredders are the essential tool for composting green waste from garden maintenance and tree pruning.

Recyclables

The main method of managing recyclables is volume reduction. This is achieved with PEL presses.

• Bottle Crusher

The glass bottles occupy a large volume and their collection in common bins requires additional staff. The installation of PEL systems also reduces the mobility of staff to transfer bottles to the waste site and the volume of recyclables by up to 80%.

• Baler

Referring to the rest recyclable materials like all cartons, packaging materials, crates and plastics, they are ideally managed with vertical balers that reduce volume by 60 to 80%, producing neat bundles of clean materials. This improves the image of the waste site and gives added value according to EU’s main environmental guidelines for the recovery of materials.

Organic Kitchen Waste

The ideal way to manage all organic waste is composting. The compost produced is a soil conditioner for all green areas but mainly for the organic vegetable garden where materials used in the kitchen are produced. The recommended type of composting is mechanical composting:

• In-Vessel Composting

Accelerated composting is the solution to the problem of both green and organic waste. ROCKET units are easy to use, with low power consumption and guaranteed compost quality.

• Biodigester

LFC Biodigester is an innovative alternative food waste management system. It is a “stomach of steel” which converts waste into gray water through an aerobic process. The LFC biodigester is a fully closed automatic composting machine that processes most foods within 24 hours. Once installed, you can add waste at any time.

An alternative method of managing kitchen waste is the technique of reducing the volume either by the drying or dehydrating method.

• Method of Dehydration

The DEHYDRA station is a modern system for reducing the volume of kitchen waste. The reduction potential can reach 80% by volume and 50% by weight. Dehydra has the potential to reduce waste volume by up to 80% and reduce waste weight by up to 50%. It uses the most effective combination of filters to remove only moisture and not solid waste that could cause unpleasant odors. The filters are self-cleaning after each cycle.

• Method of Drying

Of all the waste management technologies, GAIA drying technology is unique as it provides an on-site, odorless solution producing two sterile products: biomass and gray water. They are simply automatic drying systems based on heating and mechanical stirring. Since moisture levels in organic and food waste are very high (up to 98%), the reduction in volume and weight is achieved by evaporation of water, leaving a dry sterile biomass that does not smell and can be stored for several weeks.

Bin Monitoring

For large hospital units, another option offered for waste management is the Solar Bin smart city bin. The Solar Bin is the answer to the current situation of garbage collection in busy places. Increasing amounts of waste in various parts of the hotel complex, low budget and increased collection costs as well as the nuisance created by overflowing bins and odors are the current situation that requires quick and feasible solutions. The Solar Bin achieves up to 90% reduction in waste collection and provides a comprehensive update that leads to a cost savings of up to 60%.
