About Us - Our food digester

Our innovative approach focuses on addressing multiple environmental issues related to food waste disposal. We use an advanced aerobic enzymatic breakdown process to break down food waste into its smallest components, including fats that are converted into fatty acids and glycerol. 

This has direct implications for the following problems:
– CO2 emissions from garbage trucks: Traditional food waste disposal requires frequent collection by garbage trucks, which generates significant CO2 emissions. Our method eliminates the need for these polluting vehicles.
– Methane emissions from landfills: Food waste in landfills produces significant amounts of methane, a very potent greenhouse gas. Our technology reduces the amount of food waste ending up in landfills, which significantly reduces methane emissions.
– Dirty, smelly and vermin-attracting containers: Traditional green containers used to store food waste are often sources of odor nuisance and attract vermin. We offer a hygienic and more environmentally friendly alternative solution.

The BMD Team

What we do

Our BMD machines perform food waste processing on site, eliminating the need for garbage trucks and smelly containers. Here’s how the process works:
– On-site waste processing: Our machines break down food waste on site, eliminating the need to transport it.
– Discharge to water treatment plants: The processed food waste is led to water treatment plants in a hygienic and environmentally friendly manner via the existing sewer network.
– Biogas production: The 100% organic waste that comes from our machines is used by bacteria in water treatment plants to produce biogas.

Why is this a better approach?
– Environmentally friendly: Our method uses existing infrastructure, such as sewerage and water treatment plants, and promotes the production of renewable energy in the form of biogas. Food waste no longer ends up in landfill where the greenhouse gas methane is created.

– Efficient: By breaking down food waste on site, we avoid unnecessary transport with garbage trucks and the resulting CO2 emissions. Employees also spend less time processing food waste in a BMD machine.

– Circular solution: The biogas produced is a valuable product that can be used for energy generation, creating a circular approach to food waste management.

This innovative process offers a win-win-win situation for the environment, companies and society as a whole. It reduces pollution, minimizes transport costs and contributes to sustainable energy production.

Our food digester

We understand the importance of having enough food waste capacity, especially during busy periods like holidays. Providing the right sized BMD machine is essential to offering reliability even during the busiest times of the year. It’s important to note that different types of food waste decompose at varying rates. Foods like dense-fiber vegetables and chicken bones require more time for breakdown. To better serve your unique needs, we require insights into your daily waste generation volume and types, particularly during peak periods.

We categorize our food digester in 3 different sections. Our small food digester, medium and large section. Click the section that you want to know more about, and we guide you to this part of our website. Let’s solve the problem of food waste with the right food digester for your company.

BMD+ our food digester for the future

For food waste - Bio-plastic and compostable packaging

The idea of using the BMD food digester to break down plant-based packaging is fascinating. This would be a significant step in converting more usable waste into valuable resources, such as bio-gas, while simultaneously processing the food waste associated with these packaging materials in the BMD machine. However, the execution of this idea presents some challenges, primarily due to the diversity of plant-based materials used for food packaging.

To achieve this goal, thorough research into the composition and properties of various plant-based materials is necessary. Additionally, we must find suitable enzymes to efficiently break down these materials. This is a time-consuming process that requires experiments and adjustments to the BMD machine.

The current testing process has already yielded positive results, with some plant-based materials successfully broken down in the machine. However, whether this can be expanded to encompass all compostable plant-based materials remains uncertain and necessitates further efforts and research.

The ultimate aim is to offer a diverse portfolio of materials and products. This would enable businesses to use fossil plastic-free packaging, including packaging made from materials like sugarcane pulp or banana leaves, which can be fully broken down in the BMD machine.

In the future, this sustainable approach will also be available on the website, providing businesses with access to packaging materials that can be broken down in our machines. It’s a promising initiative with the potential to increase its impact on reducing food waste and promoting environmental conservation.

Green bin or BMD machine?

See the difference

Do you also have a green bin that looks like this? Knowing you have to wait another 4 days before the truck comes to pick up the food waste. Not even mentioning the task of cleaning the container and doing this week after week.
Let’s solve your food waste problem and create a hygienic way of getting rid of food waste. A future without the hassle of a smelly, dirty, fly-creating green bin. Welcome to the world of a BMD machine.

UPDATE: We have decided to put a hold on new resellers until Q2 2024.

Bio Materials Digester (BMD) recently made a bold decision: We temporarily halt new reseller recruitment. Why? Because we are working on groundbreaking new composting machine design. These machines are set to redefine waste management, being more efficient, eco-friendly, and cost-effective.

But BMD’s vision doesn’t stop there. we’re planning to offer our resellers not just machines, but a complete package. This includes intensive training, marketing support, and access to a range of additional products and services. The goal? To create a strong network of resellers who can offer comprehensive waste management solutions.
