Press Release - GaiaRecycle

11/15/2010 -

PALO ALTO, CA—November 15, 2010—GaiaRecycle™, LLC, an industry-leading global provider of organic waste recycling systems, today announced the new G-30H modular model to address the food waste processing needs typically found in small restaurants and elementary schools.

The GaiaRecycle G-30H system, featuring 66 lbs per day processing capacity, recycles mixed food scraps and organic waste including small bones (chicken, fish etc), fruits, vegetables, pastas, starches, lean meats, bread, egg shells, and all liquids—plus milk or juice cartons, napkins and plastic utensils—without causing jamming, minimizes downtime and lowers overall maintenance/operation costs. This compact GaiaRecycle model (41"L x 32"W x32"H) is ideally suited for primary schools with approximately 300 students and food service providers delivering approximately 200 meals per day. GaiaRecycle offers larger systems designed for schools, restaurants and other facilities with higher capacity food waste requirements.

GaiaRecycle’s patented “double helix” shredder and blade technology accelerates the organic decomposition process based on drying, sterilizing and grinding food scraps and organic waste. During its 8 hours processing cycle, food waste weight and volume are reduced by up to 90 percent. GaiaRecycle’s proprietary six-step deodorizer process removes odors, and the resulting output material from the processed food waste is a sterilized, easy-to-handle, compostable soil amendment.

The compact, turnkey G-30H system features safe, simple push-button operations and automated controls including built-in temperature and moisture sensors for robust operations and a hassle-free user experience. No microorganisms, enzymes, water or other additives are required during processing. GaiaRecycle has a significant level of experience and technological excellence in food waste recycling, and a wide range of modular models for processing almost any level of food and organic waste with consistent and reliable performance.

“Onsite recycling of food and organic waste eliminates health and safety issues associated with the germs and odors of spoiled foods and liquids stored in unsecured dumpsters until regular trash pick-up,” said Young Song, CEO of GaiaRecycle. “By processing waste using any GaiaRecycle model, all pathogens and odors are removed, and less frequent waste removal is needed.”

The G-30H model joins GaiaRecycle’s full product line of modular food and organic waste recycling systems ranging from processing capacities of 66 lbs per day to two tons per day for small-volume and mid-sized users, and up to 100+ tons per day for large organic waste recycling plants.
