Bio-Trans Nordic is a complete disposal eco-system that turns waste food into energy which Ecofocus Group is launching in the UK and beyond.

It takes less than a minute to grind tough kitchen waste in BioTrans' BioMaster.

Companies achieve a number of unique benefits with the BioTrans system. All employees in the kitchen get a lighter and more hygienic workflow as a food grinder takes care of the food waste quickly and the recycle recycles it into green energy for, for example, heat and electricity. A BioMaster in the kitchen is a gain for all parties - from food waste to biogas. A modern and green solution for the disposal of food waste. Biogas plants are supplied with biofuels, CO2 emissions are reduced, food waste is recycled, the environmental objective is met.

Less time and energy are wasted on transporting waste into bins, and odours are avoided. Waste is poured directly into the waste shredder, which transports it through the system to the containers. The working environment is being taken care of, and good working practices and hygiene is also maintained. 

Optimization of work processes

Logistics in a large kitchen are simplified and hygiene is given priority. There is no need to worry about filled waste containers and unhygienic bins that must be moved, emptied and cleaned daily to maintain a hygienic process.

CO2-friendly disposal of waste

Biotanks have a large capacity for storing food waste, which significantly reduces transport. They respect the environment by being significantly more CO2-friendly. The bio-gassification process is actually 8 times more CO2-friendly than a coal-fired CHP.

Greener accounting and sharpened CSR profile

We document that the waste is recycled optimally, and the green numbers can be used in the company's green accounts and a sharpened CSR profile. The company's sustainability credentials are enhanced by making this investment and dealing with social, environmental and ethical challenges in accordance with recognized principles at the international level.

Economic solution

The investment in the BioTrans system pays back within the lifetime of the system. In other words, it is also a profitable solution. The system is significantly cheaper to operate than the usual food waste solutions, which are both old-fashioned, impractical and today quite unnecessary when looking at the Bio-Trans option.

BioMaster waste shield

A BioMaster is a waste shield, or a 'bio protection' as it is also called. The food waste is filled here in the mill, and then goes through the pipe system to containers, after which it is converted into biogas. It is a both easy and hygienic way of disposing of the kitchen's food waste. In comparison to the collection of waste in waste containers - also known as 'pork pans', as many large kitchens still use today, a waste shield is the modern, environmentally friendly and economical solution to the problem.

A BioMaster is an investment for a company in a greener future, which not only benefits the company itself, but ultimately also the environment with a reduced CO2 emission. In this concept, there are, in other words, no losers, only winners.

Why is recycling of food waste important?

With the BioMaster, the process in the kitchen is optimized. All food waste is simply filled in the garbage hood and the lid is closed. The food waste is then mixed with a small amount of water and transported from the grinder into the closed pipe system.

BioMaster is a grinder developed with a focus on robustness and is today the most powerful and reliable waste shield on the market.

The BioMaster waste shredder is available in three basic variants: Highline, Plus or Slim. The varieties each have their own benefits depending on the surroundings of the given kitchen they are placed in.

Custom-tailored waste shield

In addition to the three fixed variants, BioMaster is also available as a flexible and customized solution that can be tailored to local conditions and needs. For example, it can be integrated with conveyor belts and dishes where food waste is poured directly into the mill from the conveyor belt. In such solutions, BioMaster can still function as a general waste shield if there is a need to crush larger amounts of waste under the lid. There is also the possibility of installing more grinders in addition to the grinder provided.

BioTrans Nordic has good experience in adapting the BioMaster to its surroundings, giving the company a tailor made solution that fits the individual kitchen's conditions.

Building a new industrial estate, theme park or community with multiple catering operations? You can build in this complete

eco-system from the outset.

The food waste is mixed with a small amount of water and flows to a storage tank. It automatically alerts you when it is 80% full. As a sealed unit there is no odour to escape or opportunity for flies or vermin to enter the tank which can be placed wherever it suits the building, providing many storage options. It can stand close to the kitchen, but also in a basement or on the first floor if needed. In the case of new construction there is also the possibility of burying the tank, so that there is a possibility to save using expensive square meters inside.

The biotank is available in different sizes according to the needs of the location and can be adapted to the space and amount of food waste. The tanks are available in standard models down to 2 m³, but there is also the possibility to specially produce a tank that fits perfectly with the surroundings. BioTrans Nordic collaborates with Denmark's leading plastic tank manufacturer when a biotank is to be custom made. So the biotank is available in different sizes according to the needs of the company and can be adapted to the space and amount of food waste.

As the employee never comes into direct contact with the biotank, it is a hygienic alternative to, among other things, composting food waste. The tank is also odorless, as it is either connected to the existing vent or a specially developed biofilter is added that prevents odors.

The tank is cleaned as needed, and it is possible to install sprinklers that make cleaning even easier.

When it is time to empty the tank, a transporter will arrive to pump out the contents. Where there is a new development that there are multiple food outlets in close proximity, it is possible to avoid the use of the tanker and pipe the biomass feedstock directly to a biomass digesting plant and the energy generated straight back to the same buildings. 

Other technologies such as pyrolysis or gassification can replace the biomass plant.

The Biomass plant is operated by a third party. However with the development of a new community, theme park or industrial estate, it would be possible for the biomass plant to be part of the development and the green energy and heat created piped back into the park for local consumption. A truly sustainable eco-system for food waste.
