This is the first-ever system in Hong Kong to automatically liquefy food waste into slurry. It offers a simple, clean and hygienic solution to the collection and shipping of food waste. Through the installation at residential estates and restaurants, Food TranSmarter can help convert food waste into slurry, which can then be easily transported by suction trucks to the compact unmanned systems to generate renewable energy and animal feed.
Food waste is a serious global problem, nearly 1/3 of the world's food is wasted, resulting in up to 1.3 billion tonnes of food waste every year. Recycling is often hindered by inconvenient food waste collection, high labour consumption and high cost. Therefore, most of the food waste will end up in landfills, which not only takes up valuable land resources, but also causes a lot of carbon emissions.
