Designed to eliminate the need to add fresh water during the organic food waste disposal system’s digestive process, the ozone recirculation option relies instead on water that is naturally extracted from food waste as it processes through the system.
EnviroPure’s revolutionary system breaks down food waste in just 24 hours through a combination of mechanical processing and aerobic decomposition. An all-natural, micronutrient additive accelerates the digestive process, ultimately turning the food waste into a safe grey water byproduct that meets, and frequently surpasses, municipal wastewater requirements. With the new ozone recirculation option, that grey water is infused with ozone, which acts as a cleansing agent. The purified water then recirculates in a bubbler tank until further needed. Any excess water is can be used for irrigation or other non-potable purposes.
“A typical foodservice operation could expect to save about 400 gallons of water a day using this ozone infusion option,” says Jim Slanina, president of EnviroPure. “At a time when we’re beginning to realize water is not an unlimited resource, we think this will be a welcome innovation.”
The EnviroPure system has won a number of industry awards since T&S acquired it in 2013, and the system has found favor with a broad spectrum of foodservice operations ranging from theme parks and universities to hospitals and casinos. Most recently, EnviroPure systems have been installed in the Statue of Liberty and the new Virgin Hotel Chicago.
“We’re terrifically pleased that the NRA has recognized the uniqueness of this new ozone treatment option. To the best of our knowledge, no other process like it exists in the market, and we’re very excited about having an impact both on saving water and keeping food waste out of landfills.”
