Developed and distributed by the UK-based Imperial Machine Company (IMC), the WasteStation is an innovative food waste macerator and dewatering unit. In addition to the hotel’s existing compost machine which converts its food waste into fertilisers, the newly-installed machine will further simplify the process and cut down the labour.
The hotel generates an average of 360 kg of kitchen waste daily, including fruit and vegetable peels and food scraps, among others. Its previous compost machine can hold up to 80kg of waste, but the new WasteStation has a capacity of processing 700 kg of food waste per hour. It also reduces the process of converting the waste into fertilisers from 24 hours to just 12 hours.
