BioWhale™ | Whale Tankers
The BioWhale™ Process
Whale Tankers has created BioWhale™, a new product line to help the UK better manage unavoidable food waste.
Launched at this year’s Hotelympia hospitality show which hosted Waste Works 2016, the BioWhale™ will be sold exclusively by Whale’s partner Organic Waste Logistics (OWL), as part of their total waste food management system.
The BioWhale™ is a vacuum system that collects, processes and stores food waste at customers’ locations. The food waste is deposited into the system via a hopper, where it is shredded, ground up and mixed into a ‘soup’ that is stored under vacuum for up to three weeks. The ‘soup’ is then removed by a vacuum truck and delivered to an anaerobic digestion plant were it is converted into renewable energy in the form of biogas and organic fertiliser.
Available in three sizes, compact – 4,000 litres, standard – 12,000 litres and large – 24,000 litres, BioWhale™ offers odour and maintenance free operation. When combined with the OWL logistics and management system, it provides an easy ‘just push the button’ option for chefs and catering managers, requiring no up-front investment and providing a full food waste service from the point the food waste is created through to 100% recycling into green energy and organic fertiliser.
OWL provides a fully managed solution for commercial food waste that is lower cost, less polluting and 100% recycled.
