Technology

ReGreen Machines overcome the challenges associated with the collection, processing, and ultimate disposition of many waste streams, including food waste and green waste, by converting it into a usable product. It creates two sets of byproducts, solid and liquid, but the possible applications of those byproducts can branch out to diverse fields, giving the machine the potential to benefit various industries and make a positive contribution to society. It is compact, scalable, and continuously converts thousands of pounds of waste per hour into fertilizers, compost, and biofuel.

 

Unlike other recycling machines that are limited to using only particular food products or wood chip, the technology employed in our machines allows us to accept virtually any form of organic material. Our systems include multiple stages that efficiently reduce the size of the waste, compress it, squeeze out its liquid, pulverize the dehydrated content, and form byproducts that are dried and cooled. The end material can be used as a fertilizer supplement and/or a biofuel. This same machine also treats the liquid initially extracted from the waste, resulting in a product that could either be used as liquid fertilizer or sold to companies manufacturing biogases.

Benefits

In approximately 30-minutes, our processors and equipment can eliminate bacteria and odors from virtually any material type. This can be done at rates of several hundred pounds to 42 tons per-hour in our fully scalable machines. The end products are stable and suitable for many immediate ecofriendly and ecologically beneficial uses. To many, with traditional industry experience, this may seem unthinkable, but it is a reality using our patent-pending technology.

 

To provide a general understanding of our processing applications, it is important to understand that our machines rapidly heat material in an enclosed vessel that utilizes radiant heat from enclosed dry steam. This rapid heating process kills bacteria before it can enter a spore form. We do not burn material, thus nutrients are retained, and the only resulting emission is water vapor released from organic material during the cooking and drying process. We also utilize boilers that run on flexible fuel sources, which include natural gas, propane, and the pellets our organic processing system creates. Thus, in some applications we only need an initial "kick-start" from propane, leaving the system to run entirely on a small portion of the end product it creates.
