Recycling Food Waste into Water
Food waste can be repurposed to supply drinking water and power while reducing the release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. In the case of Cordis Hotel, a waste management system has to install in the establishment's restaurants to turn food waste into cleaner water.
Participating with ORCA, The Cordis Hotel in Auckland launched an innovative recycling initiative uses microbes to break down food waste to water. Large stainless-steel containers of food are digested by bacteria, which also turn the waste into water. The sewage system subsequently removes this water from the environment. The technology aids the hotel in lowering the volume of solid trash it sends to landfills - converts 1000 kg of trash into ecologically safe water every 24 hours. and in lowering its carbon footprint by removing the need to carry the rubbish to the landfills.
