- Case studies
The A1200 is the third biggest Rocket in our range, it’s robust in design and built to last. it’s the ideal commercial food waste composting system for large scale sites that want to generate a resource from their food waste
In addition to helping businesses to develop a nutrient-rich compost resource in just 14 days, the A1200 also plays a key role in reducing a brand’s carbon footprint – eliminating the need for off-site waste disposal and therefore contributing to cutting pollution levels.
The A1200 is the first of our heavy duty units and offers the option to load from wheelie bins whilst the system comes as standard with touch screen display and remote monitoring. Additional options include outfeed conveyor and air injection to maximise throughput for busy sites.
Designed to process a range of organic wastes, such as cooked and uncooked meat, fish, fruit and vegetables, alongside garden, green and animal waste (including some types of bedding), the A1200 is a versatile and reliable solution for sites looking to promote a more circular – and less linear – economy.
You can increase your overall capacity by first processing food waste with our Dehydra Dewaterer. This equipment chops up and removes liquids first, before feeding it into the composter, to significantly increase the overall throughput (see below).>
