Innovative Food Waste Disposal

The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has hit businesses financially and logistically across the last year; we recently worked with a free-range and organic egg specialist to provide them with a solution to their waste problem caused by the pandemic.


CLIENT – A Free-range and Organic Egg Specialist in the South West.

SCOPE - This customer had a large amount of liquid egg with shell that needed to be safely disposed of after overseas transportation was halted due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

PERIOD - February 2021 - present

RESULTS

  • 85 tonne or approximately 101,900 litres of liquid egg yolk and whites sustainably recycled.
  • 9.32 tonne(s) of shell composted.
  • 65 mixed IBCs and stillage tanks cleaned and returned to the customer.
  • Specific filtering screens created for the inclusion within our collection vacuum tankers for a safe, quick collection, transportation and disposal of the products.

OUTCOME 

“The last year has been incredibly difficult for lots of businesses and while we’ve been lucky enough to have been able to continue to provide our quality market-leading products to the nation, we have encountered a few hiccups along the way.

The team at BioteCH4 were incredibly helpful when we contacted them with our dilemma, they were swift to find us a solution that worked and was cost effective. It’s good to know that our product has been safely and sustainably recycled.”
