Reduce cost with the ‘ecoHERO’ Digester

At Organicco, we don’t just focus on reducing your cost and reducing your waste, we are offering you the opportunity and the tools to transform your waste into a commodity - fertiliser - which Organicco offer purchase back from you. No other company offers you an income from food waste disposal.

Accelerated thermophilic aerobic digester for food waste

Our ‘ecoHERO’ Digesters are simple to operate. They require minimal maintenance, they’re quiet, safe, hygienic, sealed and neatly packaged and therefore emit no odours. They have a relatively small footprint, too. 

Our new range of ‘ecoHERO’s have greater modular flexibility, which allows the front end to be expanded should the demand on the machine’s capacity increase, without the expense of upgrading to a larger model. 

We have expanded the range of models too - a new mini ‘ecoHERO’ can process from as little as 100kgs a day, at the other end of the scale, we can build ‘ecoHERO’s to process more than 100 tonnes a day. 

This now allows virtually every business and organisation with a organic waste disposal requirement, a cost effective, alternative to expensive landfill, incineration or waterway disposal. Whilst giving them an income from the fertiliser our Biotech solution offers. 

Further still, new electrical control panel ensures they remain incredibly economical to run. 

Features and benefits

Separated organic waste is bin lifted into the ‘ecoHERO’, on a continuous feeding cycle, which allows you to input the organic waste at any time and with any volume up to the capacity of the machine. Once bin lifted, it’s shredded and slowly aerobically digested in a homogeniser tank. Afterwards, homogeneous matter is then fed into the rotary bioreactor where it goes through accelerated thermophilic aerobic digestion and finally the microwave drying process occurs, from which the fertiliser granules are produced. 

Once processed, the organic waste will have reduced by around 70% in both weight and volume, leaving a commodity that is manageable, packageable and easily transportable. 

Fertiliser is a commodity in demand, so to make life easy, we will buy all the fertiliser you produce back from you at an agreed rate per tonne. We even collect your fertiliser for free. From anywhere in the world. 

The ‘ecoHERO’ Digester offers the best cost-effective solution to recycle food waste. It is a closed-loop system where nothing is wasted, everything is recycled into a useful form. We can even recover the water that is condensed in the process. 

This system then completes a food cycle as in a natural process, where food waste becomes the nutrient and carbon rich fertiliser source for new crop.

The Technology

Organicco’s patented ‘ecoHERO’ Digester is the first of its kind anywhere in the world, it makes recycling organic waste easy and profitable. The system is based on accelerated thermophilic aerobic digestion (ATAD) which breaks down organic materials very quickly. So quickly, in fact, that the ‘ecoHERO’ will shred and digest the waste material and produce a non-toxic, stable fertiliser pellet in less than a day in some cases, without the need for expensive enzymes or chemical additives. 

About the Fertiliser

Numerous tests have been carried out on the fertiliser pellets and show that it has good soil nutrient properties. It is stable and slow releasing, thus usable for farming. The stability test of fertiliser shown by blue trace outperforms PAS100 material shown by black trace. (See graph on CO2 production)

The Need

Loc Troi Group, formally known as An Giang Plant Protection, are a Vietnamese agricultural company, established in 1993 in the An Giang Province. Growing from a small start-up company of 23 people, Loc Troi is now one of Vietnams leading agricultural distributers, which works in the fields of crop protection chemicals, seeds, paper packing, tourism and rice processing for export and domestic consumption. Currently, Loc Troi employ in excess of 2,000 people and are working closely with Vietnamese farmers to develop sustainable cultivation techniques. 

Loc Troi pride themselves on both sustainability and their close relationship with Vietnam’s farmers. In 2006 they launched the ‘To the Fields with the Farmers’ campaign, which saw Loc Troi Scientists and Developers live and work among the farmers to gain a true insight into their needs. This commitment aimed at developing truly sustainable farming methods, to match the group’s philosophy that ‘Farmers are the group’s real owners.’ 

Such commitment to sustainability, however, was found lacking in certain areas of the company. As a producer of sugar, Loc Tori found itself dealing with 700 tonnes of waste sugar cane dust and peat a week. Due to the its high moisture content of 40-50%, the use of sugar cane dust as a combustible fuel was problematic, and landfill costs were in the region of 50 USD per tonne. Clearly, a solution was needed to create a sustainable sugar production operation, which maximised efficiency and minimised costs, in line with the value of sustainability that the company advocated.

The Solution

Experiments into the natural fermentation of waste had already been carried out in an attempt to solve this problem, but this process took between 40-45 days and was not practical due to the volumes of waste produced. What was needed was a quick solution that would divert waste from landfills, bringing both financial and environmental benefits. 

Loc Troi found Organicco’s team online, and were intrigued with the content of their website. In particular, the ''ecoHERO' system was of particular interest, due its ability to convert organic waste into fertiliser in typically 3-5 days. As an agricultural company, Loc Troi used huge quantities of fertiliser, and the benefits of converting waste into fertiliser would not only solve the initial problem, but create further opportunities for savings. 

After contacting Organicco’s team, a visit to from Malaysian office was organised, where representatives from Loc Troi were given a presentation detailing what Organicco products had to offer. Following this, a period of consultation took place, as it was important for both parties to gain a full understanding of each other before any orders were placed. Representatives from Organicco visited members of Loc Troi in Ho Chi Minh City, to learn more of their needs and to make the management of Loc Tori comfortable with solution Organicco offered. A product demonstration was also arranged, to certify that the ''ecoHERO' performed as promised, and members of Loc Troi visited a site in Singapore that had recently received an ''ecoHERO' system. Impressed with what they saw, the project was given the go-ahead and the design process begun.

The Benefits

 Once the system was successfully installed across a 1000m2 area of Loc Troi’s production facility, the benefits soon became apparent. From an operational perspective, the system had to be able to handle waste coming from a range of sites. Incorporating a nearby river into the design allowed waste to be brought to the site via boat and then loaded directly into the ecoHERO, allowing waste to come directly from a wide area. Once loaded, the operator simply has to push a button, initiating the sequence. The rest happens automatically, with the operator collecting the fertiliser at the end of the process, ensuring that maximum waste could be prosed with minimal effort. 

The 'ecoHERO' also helped Loc Troi achieve a higher level of sustainability. Previously, the sugar cane dust had been sent to costly landfills, but now it was being transformed into useful resource, one that could be returned to the company and the farmers. Not only were waste disposal costs reduced, but Loc Troi became a producer of one of agriculture’s most important resources-fertiliser. No longer would they have to spend money sourcing this commodity from elsewhere.
