Green Eco Technologies will be attending EXPO 2020 Dubai with its innovative WasteMaster food waste conversion system, as an official provider, in the Australian Pavilion.

Rescheduled to run from 1 October 2021 until 31 March 2022 and with more than 190 participating countries, the Expo will welcome a very large global audience with the common purpose to learn more about the latest innovation available to support a strong and sustainable future for the planet.

The WasteMaster system converts organic waste into a reusable resource on site, without using additives or water, reducing its weight by up to 80% and preventing the greenhouse gas emissions otherwise caused by disposing of organic waste in landfill. As a demonstration of the system’s efficiency and virtually odour-free residual material remaining at the end of the conversion process, the WasteMaster will recycle all the Pavilion’s kitchen and table waste for the duration of the EXPO.

Her Excellency Reem Al Hashimy, UAE Minister of State for International Cooperation, Director General of Expo 2020 Dubai Bureau, said: “Our leadership has spared no effort, guided us, and provided all resources to ensure that our World Expo will be a true expression of the UAE’s values, reflecting its ambition to build a better future for us, the region and the world – a future of which coming generations will be proud.

“Our World Expo has a mission to inspire hope, and in the coming weeks we will begin to share new details and ideas about space, health and wellness, travel and connectivity and other subjects that sit at the heart of this Expo. We hope that people will join us to achieve our objectives to bring the world together and put humanity and the planet on the right path towards dignity for all.”

Commenting on the eagerly anticipated event, Jason Hoen, Global Sales and Marketing Director for Green Eco Technologies, said: “It is a great privilege and honour for us to be showing our innovative WasteMaster system in the Australian Pavilion at such an important and prestigious event. We are very grateful to the Australian Pavilion and are thoroughly looking forward to demonstrating the sustainability benefits of converting and re-purposing organic waste to retain its value as a further resource in support of a circular economy.”

By Dominic Stevenson

As announced in May 2020, AusIMM is collaborating with Green Eco Technologies to showcase waste-reduction innovation for the conversion and re-purposing of putrescible organic waste.

This article draws on case studies from the health and hospitality sectors, demonstrating the potential for Green Eco Tec’s WasteMaster technology to be used in the resources sector to both reduce food waste and increase site sustainability.
The innovative WasteMaster food waste conversion system has been maximising the value of food waste, while minimising its impact on the environment for over five years.
Currently managing food waste from hotels, hospitals, restaurants, hospitality catering, mining and other catering service sites, the WasteMaster cleanly processes and converts food preparation and table waste, on site, in less than 24 hours, reducing it by up to 80 per cent without water or other additives.
After the conversion process, the much smaller quantity of virtually odourless, pathogen-free, high-calorific value residual material can be re-used to produce green energy through anaerobic digestion and for other useful purposes.

Epworth HealthCare, Victoria Australia’s largest not-for-profit private hospital group, is using the WasteMaster to divert its food waste from landfill, instead generating energy from the residual material remaining after the conversion cycle.
Utilising the WasteMaster, Epworth successfully diverted 72% of its food waste, almost ten tonnes, from landfill, instead converting this into 2.7 tonnes of reusable residue. The high energy-value residue was sent to the Yarra Valley Water Anaerobic Digester where it generated 2,610 kWh of green energy – enough electricity to power 191 homes for a day.
Deakin University has calculated that: ‘The WasteMaster organics processing technology generates approximately 84% fewer CO2-eq emissions than the same amount of food waste being disposed of to landfill, taking into account both disposal and transport.’ In the case of the Epworth HealthCare installation, this meant an equivalent CO2 reduction of 13.86 tonnes.

As another example, a major hotel delivering 1,000 meals per day wanted to both minimise the amount of food waste it was generating, and the environmental impact of any unavoidable food waste from its extensive catering services.
The hotel was struggling to find a disposal solution for their organic waste that was cost-effective and would not impact on daily operational procedures.
Food waste was stored at the rear of the hotel, often for a considerable time, taking up valuable space and creating an unclean and unpleasant area which also attracted vermin. Heavy vehicles collecting large numbers of waste bins from a busy area was also a safety concern.
The WasteMaster was seen as the most viable and effective solution and could be installed without the need for plumbing or other services except a three-phase power supply. The hotel efficiently processed up to 18 tonnes of food waste per month, with the pathogen-free residue being stored on site for a considerable time until enough was accumulated for the best transport economies, while also eliminating the problems previously caused by waste rotting on site.
Catering staff very easily adapted to the WasteMaster as part of their daily processes and as well as providing cost-effective and environmentally beneficial food waste management, the system also delivered accurate information on the quantities of food waste being loaded for management information, environmental reporting and as a tool to minimise wastage at source – the prime objective in the fight to improve environmental and cost performance.

Further ratifying the WasteMaster system as the way forward for sustainable food waste conversion, Green Eco Technologies has been selected as a finalist in the Innovation in Sustainable Technologies category of the Gulf Sustainability and CSR Awards.

The WasteMaster’s clean and efficient on-site conversion of food waste, reducing it by up to 80 per cent without the addition of water or other additives, allows this valuable resource to be repurposed as green energy through anaerobic digestion and other products, in keeping with a circular economy.

WasteMaster’s reporting system also confirms the amount of food waste being loaded to help identify any training required to reduce this quantity at source. For every two tonnes of food waste fed into the WasteMaster and diverted from landfill, around 3.2 tonnes of greenhouse gases are prevented and Deakin University’s research has shown an 84% CO2 equivalent reduction in greenhouse gas generation when compared to disposing of this waste to landfill.

The global Gulf Sustainability and CSR Awards are open to all businesses, organizations, and individuals, regardless of sector, who are committed to exceptional sustainability and corporate social responsibility. Having passed the initial assessment and shortlisting process, finalists must demonstrate the achievements of their products, systems, or initiatives to an independent panel of judges, with the awards results being announced at a gala event the following day.

Speaking about Green Eco Technologies’ selection as a finalist for its WasteMaster system, Jason Hoen, Global Sales and Marketing Director for the Company, said: “We are honoured to have reached the final stage of the prestigious Gulf Sustainability and CSR Awards, and look forward to showing what our WasteMaster sustainable food waste management system is doing globally to preserve the Environment.”

GET’s innovative WasteMaster food waste conversion system was initially showcased in a prestigious hotel in Ras Al Khaimah, where it demonstrated its advanced environmental credentials. In contrast to other available systems, the compact WasteMaster does not need drainage as it doesn’t use water, and no enzymes or any other additives are required during processing. The WasteMaster efficiently converts food waste, on-site, into a much smaller quantity of reusable residual material which can be re-purposed for uses such as green energy.

Food waste disposal is a huge challenge in the United Arab Emirates and RAK WMA is supporting the UAE Government’s environmental target to achieve zero waste to landfill through initiatives such as The Green Hotel Initiative, Vision 2021 and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Agency will be using the WasteMaster, which also measures the actual amounts of food waste being processed, to increase both residential and business awareness of the need to reduce food waste volumes, while also showing that food waste can be re-used as a valuable product to produce green energy and potentially to enrich soil for future food growth.

Two WasteMaster systems have already been installed, one at the Nakheel Food Hub Centre and the other at the Khuzam Food Hub Centre, and the WasteMaster units will be used in RAK WMA’s recycling centres across the Emirate.

Speaking about this prestigious recognition, Global Sales and Marketing Director for Green Eco Technologies, Jason Hoen, said:

“We are delighted and honoured to have been recognised as a strategic partner for the Ras Al Khaimah Waste Management Agency, and we are proud to be providing support through our WasteMaster system to achieve RAK WMA’s environmental goals and sustainable development across the United Arab Emirates.

“Green Eco Technologies looks forward to developing its relationship with RAK WMA and we are very grateful to our partner at Doctor Drain, Iris Medalle, for her representation during the assessment phase of the process and at the special presentation event.”
