FOOD WASTE TO DRY ORGANIC FERTILIZER

 

Food waste is any unused, left over and any consumable food items being discarded and is usually being handled by waste department and/or privately contracted waste management companies and is being hauled away and dumped into landfills. The sources of food waste mainly comes from leftover of our meals, waste ingredients during preparation of cuisine and the rejected products from food manufacturing and processing industries. In the United States the food waste contributes 35% by weight of the daily municipal solid wastes which are collected from domestic residential, commercial and industrial premises.

 

Reports indicate that only 5% of the food waste is being recycled and is mainly being turn into fertilizer and renewable energy and the rest sits in landfills and is turning into a problematic issue in health and environment.

Kievnov Bio Stove

The stove design, which directs air through burning fuel in an internal chimney. The height and diameter of the combustion chamber and encourages the mixing of gases and flame above the fuel to promote efficient combustion. Efficient combustion means little to no smoke.

Our precise internal stove dimensions are essential to achieving high combustion efficiency and heat transfer, capable of emitting up to 23,000 BTUs. Add in a fully insulated body to the stove and you have a safe, efficient, and powerful cooking machine. Our stoves use up to 60% less fuel and emit 70% less smoke than cooking on an open fire, reducing consumption of natural resources and toxic smoke inhalation while enabling you took cook with just a few sticks.

Fruit & VEG Solar Dryer

Drying of agricultural produce found to be very important unit operation to ensure proper preservation or storage of food product after harvesting. Further, Solar Drying Systems is one of the well known method of drying of food products, by trapping the heat from sun followed by forced blowing of heated air through the bed of agricultural produce.

Solar Drying being a promising system because of renewable source of heat.

How it Works ??? Broadly, Heat energy are of two types:

1.Sensible Heat (changes Temperature)

2. Latent Heat (No change in Temp.) PCMs changes its phase at a constant temperature, by storing a large amount of latent heat AND again changes back its phase by releasing the stored heat, which is used for heating or drying purpose.
