One step

With the PowerRinse Waste Collection System, scrapping and pre-rinsing can be accomplished in one step prior to dishwashing. Solid waste is collected in a scrap basket. With the smallest screen size in the industry, PowerRinse ensures that most waste is captured, and less ends up down the drain. The system also consumes 50% less fresh water per hour than other collector systems on the market.

InSinkErator hot water dispensers deliver up to 100 cups of near-boiling water per hour. Hot water on demand is an indispensable feature for hospitality and foodservice sector. InSinkErator’s dispensers improve staff efficiencies, reduce serving time, require no expensive pipe runs, and are easy to install.

Mohamed Karam, senior business development manager, InSinkErator Middle East and Africa said, “It is important to instill sustainable practices in the sector right from the grassroots. The hospitality sector will experience an exponential growth in the lead up to EXPO 2020, and it is important that we have in place systems to manage food waste to prepare for the mega event. The use of digester and disposers can divert considerable food waste from landfills. Waste captured can be converted for biogas production. This also supports UAE 2050 strategy that seeks to adopt as much as 50% of sources of power generation as green sources.”
