GOHBio 1001, a high-volume organic waste decomposition unit, can break down as much as 1,200 lbs. of food waste per day with the help of microorganisms. An all-stainless cabinet houses the process, which adds heat and moisture to food waste so the microorganisms can do their job. BioHitech America says that virtually all solids are eliminated, leaving behind nutrient-rich water that can safely be discharged down a drain. There’s no byproduct to handle and no leftover waste to haul away. The machine’s footprint is 67″W x 44″D, and installation should include 5′ of clearance to facilitate ongoing maintenance. BioHitech also offers models that process 800 lbs. and 400 lbs. of organic waste per day.
