The Twister is here! And here is why that is such a big deal.
Organic waste going to landfill is a problem involving food and liquids (often trapped in sealed containers) undergoing anaerobic decomposition that resulting in uncontrolled methane gas release, the loss of trapped resources and plastics entering the water system.
In Australia, studies show that about 50% of household waste is made up of organic material and In 2016-2017 as much as 75% of food waste (5.5 million tonnes) went to landfill around the country. (source page 9: https://www.qld.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0032/208589/draft-organics-strategy-2022-2032.pdf)
With national agreements now in place to halve organic waste going to landfill by 2030, it is no longer something resource recovery operators can simply ignore.
Effective organic waste management is about being able to effectively reclaim organic material trapped inside the various sealed (plastic or metal) containers, bags, sacks and boxes so that it can be appropriately processed in an organic processing technology.
Whether the organics are destined for an organic process such as composting Digestor / Biogas plant, a worm farm or fly larvae the non organic plastics plastics need to be removed
This is not a new problem, however until now, most depackaging systems have drawbacks such as being difficult to feed, chop plastics into small pieces, prone to blocking easily, labour intensive to operate, complex to operate, require regular maintenance and/or regular cleaning.
Drycake has overcome those problems with a unique design that is easy to operate, fast, tolerant of a wide variety of input materials and effective at harvesting the organics trapped inside containers.
Can the Twister change the way waste recovery is managed?
The Twister is a depackaging & debagging organics system that extracts larger sized, cleaner, drier plastics which means up to 99% plastic free organics output.
