About Us - Our food digester

Now, two of the Earth’s most pressing waste problems can be reduced—the pollution of single use plastic from water bottles, and the billions of tons of food waste that goes to landfills around the world, can be solved with our food digester.

The BMD Team

How we started

Everything of a developmental nature with the Bio Materials Digester (BMD) goes back to finding ways to deal with the “end-of-life” for our PLA bottles. From the very beginning, in 2003, Bill Horner, our founder, was convinced that the PLA bottles would only be a confusion to consumers, if there was not a robust collection program at the point of use, in “closed-loop” venues, and a way to make the bottles go away—peacefully.

In 2007, Horner’s company purchased a food digester company, and started the process of seeing their immediate value for the reduction of food waste, but experienced difficulties in unlocking the secrets of removing other plant-based containers along with the food waste. That company was sold, and the R&D focus went to the creation of a large-scale platform for the production of preforms, caps, and labels for their SOLU water bottle, which is currently being placed in twelve “closed-loop” model sites around the world by www.single-use-solutions.com

Where we are now with our food digester.

Finally, in 2019, with the establishment of an office in Amsterdam, the European prospective on waste requirements for food-related businesses caused the R&D action pieces of the waste food and packaging puzzle to take shape. “Bottle Model Digester LLC” was formed to finish out the work that had been done previously, and the BMD food digester came into being to form the current overall contribution to the environment that was originally meant to be operational many years before 2022. While the company remains head-quartered in the USA, a warehouse and training component is located in the Netherlands, led by Gerco Leeflang. Due to the wider mission of this unique environmental equipment, our brand is still BMD—but now stands for the full purpose of its job—- http://www.biomaterialsdigester.com/

Now, two of the Earth’s most pressing waste problems can be reduced. The pollution caused by single use plastic from water bottles, and the billions of tons of food waste that goes to landfills around the world can be solved with our food digester.

The BMD process

Turning food waste into gray water

Our BMD+ machine

For food waste - Bio-plastic and compostable packaging

We are developing a food digester machine that can compost food waste – bioplastics (PLA-PHA), and compostable packaging. With our special magic sauce (bio cultures) and plant-based bio-chips, the food composter we are developing will be unique in the market.

After many years of research, we’ve found the best food digester for composting food, created a special bio culture mix and created a fossil plastic-free biochip. To provide the world with an alternative, we created BMD+ a food digester that can also compost bioplastics and compostable packaging. Finally, a responsible end of life for all the compostable packaging, PLA, PHA products, and food waste in our liquid food digester.
