Water is injected into the machine to maintain equilibrium for the microorganisms, to rapidly decompose the food, and to flush grey water out of the machine. A rotating arm inside the machine slowly churns the waste food to constantly mix the old food, new food, oxygen, and microorganisms to enhance the decomposing function.
The LFC uses a series of processes in which microorganisms break down biodegradable material in the presence of oxygen. The environment of the LFC, with our proprietary mixture of microbes and enzymes, accelerates the digestion of most food products and bio-plastics within 24 hours. The output is grey water that is environmentally safe this has also been independently tested by the university of Brunel. The LFC is a practical alternative to the traditional disposal of waste food. Anything you can eat, including fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, cheese, bread, rice, and noodles can go into the LFC. The machine can digest both raw and cooked foods. The process is totally green because it uses no chemicals.
As one of earths’ oldest processes, aerobic digestion is the most effective means of stabilizing and converting biodegradable waste. The waste food is not being chopped but it is being digested to such a degree that it becomes a liquid and can exit the machine only through a fine mesh screen. The rich by-product is therefore safe and replenishes nature.
