Our Range of in-vessel Rocket
food waste composters
The Rocket Composter is a robust, high quality machine that processes commercial scale food waste and green waste on site, using natures own process of composting.
Invented by Tidy Planet and now in its 20th year of manufacturing, there are over 1,000 machines in operation across the globe.
Composting on site is the most sutainable way of dealing with food waste and converting it into a precious resource that’s rich in nutrition and organic matter and perfect for capturing carbon and improving soil health.
Rocket Composters are being used in a multitude of sectors, helping cities, colleges, universities, luxury hotels, oil field canteens, mines and prisons and many more to close the food waste loop and care for our planet.
HOW DO ROCKET COMPOSTERS WORK?
Though Tidy Planet’s range of Rocket Composters go from 20kg up to 5000kg per day, they all follow the same basic principles, optimising and speeding up the natural composting process.
Food waste is loaded into the machine over the course of the day, along with woodchip to provide essential carbon and help with aeration.
Then, naturally occurring microbes within the process get to work, with the Rocket adding gentle aeration and mixing with controlled air flow to help them thrive.
After only 10-14 days, the food waste comes out of the other end of the machine converted into a valuable resource, an end to end process with minimal energy consumption and maximum environmental benefit.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF ROCKET FOOD WASTE COMPOSTING?
Our machines benefit from 20 years of constant development and improvement and are built to last, with few moving parts and high quality construction. In fact we have many machines still in operation after more than 15 years of active service.
Because Rocket composting at source converts food waste using natural processes, minimal energy and no transportation the carbon footprint is as low as possible.
The process not only eliminates food waste but produces an organic material that’s perfect not only for improving soil health and growing plants but replacing the need for artificial fertilisers.
And finally, with many years of experience gained from helping businesses on their composting journey our clients can be assured they will get all the support they need to compost successfully.
