Food shredding with Mercodor shredding systems - Food and Beverage - Food
Organic waste can become a problem anywhere where the disposal of waste occurs over a longer period. This challenge arises for example in the shipping industry. With Mercodor waste food shredders valuable space is saved and food protected from contamination. The processed food leftovers serve as the raw material for biodiesel production or are used for the production of green energy in the form of electricity and heat from biogas plants.
In Annex V of the MARPOL Convention ship waste refers to the waste generated during normal operation of a ship, including, but not limited to, residual waste generated at and in the galleys and tradeshows.
Due to the limited space available on board, the waste treatment mainly provides methods for reducing volume such as pressing or comminution, and this is exactly where Mercodor shredders are used.
Another application would be biogas plants, in which energy crops (eg corn and other crops, reed grass, etc.), residues such as crop residues (eg beet leaves), animal excrements (eg manure, manure), by-products of food production (eg fats, food particles, potato peels) or Organic waste (eg sewage sludge) comminuted to be used. Here, too, find Mercodor shredders your use.
