Food Waste Solutions

Food Waste on board can be a substantial load. Delitek has designed a number of food waste solutions that can help you depending on the load that you create and the routes that you travel.

Facts on Food waste:

Varies significantly in composition [potato-mash vs. fish skin vs. bones]
Water content of 60% to 70%
Contains relatively high amounts of fats | grease and is acidic by nature
Decays rapidly under ambient temperature range


Processing solution [technology] is directly related to:

Persons on board: i.e. volume

Sourcing, time-schedule and overall installation cost
HQSE : Hygiene, safety, energy-efficiency
