Waste management solutions provider Biotrans has teamed up with hygiene experts Meiko to found Meiko GREEN Waste Solutions (MGWS).

MGWS says it designs clever solutions for the collection and recycling of food waste of all kinds, with sustainable cost-effectiveness and high standards of hygiene at the forefront.

Meiko adds its international infrastructure and solutions for handling and processing food waste to Biotrans’ products and services. MGWS aims to be the market-leading specialist provider of tailored individual food waste solutions for all types of foodservice operator, from cruise ships to hotels, restaurants, hospitals, care homes and staff feeding and event caterers.

Biotrans chief executive, Patrick Hoffman, said: "We have found the green solution. Meiko GREEN Waste Solutions brings ethical and sustainable solutions to food waste disposal for our customers. Tailored to their exact needs, our solutions create a sustainable return from food waste, but also help to improve the customers working processes, saving labour and boosting efficiency and improving hygiene in the workplace.”

Both Meiko Germany and Biotrans say they have always viewed kitchen and food waste as a valuable material that can be collected and processed by dedicated systems to allow the valuable raw material to be reused for energy production. They both state they are committed to sustainability.

Meiko chief executive, Dr Ing, Stefan Scheringer, said: “The motivating philosophy is also important. Food waste is an important issue but it's also problematic. By using our innovative technology, we can make a contribution to solving this problem. And we can also contribute to valuable further utilisation, namely, to energy production.

“Apparent rubbish is thus turned into a precious raw material for energy production and this material is generated every day. It's important to us to think in terms of generations, not quarters!"
