Kingspan takes on food waste challenge


Kingspan Environmental is to showcase its range of state-of-the-art food waste digesting products at The Hospitality Show 2015.

Visitors to Kingspan’s stand in the CESA Innovation Zone will see live demonstrations of Mechline’s Waste2-O, a smart and cost-effective alternative to macerating or composting food waste, and IFOG, an award-winning environmentally friendly solution to removing fat, oil and grease from kitchen drains.

Show attendees can also take advantage of expert consultations from Kingspan’s food waste compliance team.

Waste2-O is a tried and tested, easy to use and cost-effective solution for the responsible disposal of food waste. Food is loaded into the top of the unit and a powerful formulation of micro-organisms rapidly digest it producing a totally neutral, greywater solution. Any food that humans can typically digest can be put through the unit.

A single Waste2-O unit can turn 180kg of food into waste water, suitable for discharging through the drain, in just 24 hours removing the need to send it to landfill.

“This is a sustainable, cutting-edge solution for the growing problem of food waste which has been reflected in the tremendous interest expressed by kitchen owners and chefs since we launched it,” says David Anderson, Kingspan Environmental’s business unit director for service and monitoring.

“Waste2-O will save operators thousands of pounds and, what’s more, it will safeguard establishments against future legal clamp-downs around waste disposal.”

Kingspan’s iFOG solution is another intelligent system for waste removal that uses naturally occurring micro-organisms to eat the fat, oil and grease (FOG) which builds up in kitchen drains.

“iFOG saves time and money, and makes for a cleaner, far more pleasant working environment for staff – many of whom, I’m quite sure would be delighted that they don’t have to empty grease traps with the same regularity,” says Anderson.

“It’s also an entirely trouble-free way of ensuring your businesses are compliant with the myriad of environmental regulations around FOG.”

iFOG was Highly Commended in the Sustainable Catering Equipment Award category at the recent CESA Awards 2014.
