North Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust has adopted new technology – an Aerobic Technologies digester – to cut costs and improve food waste management systems.
Sally Yates, logistics and waste manager, said the technology will reduce the cost of the Trust’s food waste and its carbon footprint; it will also save time for the staff. One 300kg food waste digester has been installed at Diana Princess of Wales Hospital, with a further machine to be installed at Scunthorpe General Hospital later this year.
Niki Dieudonne, catering manager, said: “The staff really like it. It is easy to use and easy to clean. It is a far easier system than what we were using prior to it. The staff are not having to double up on tasks.”
Rupert Galliers-Pratt, founder and director of Aerobic Technologies, said: “We are delighted to have assisted the Trust in achieving their forward thinking targets of reducing food waste together with associated costs and contributing by adopting sustainability initiatives.
The portal and reporting system for the Aerobic Technologies digester has been created by 24/7 Uptime. Rupert commented: “The reporting system is quite sophisticated, creating data in different formats. This provides a valuable communication service to the organisations using the ATL digesters. It permits the customer to monitor waste data in real time continuously throughout the day from any remote location.”
