Food Waste Recycling



The process of treatment and separation of expired foodstuffs groups expired products from supermarkets, food stores, restaurants, both packaged and loose.

The recovered organic products are highly digestible in anaerobic processes, therefore ideal for biogas installations. Before anearobic digestion can take place, however, it is necessary to remove the plastic, metal, cardboard or other packaging materials to avoid process problems in biogas plants.

To avoid these problems RecEng with MAVITEC proposes a system for the separation of organic materials from non-organic materials, for the treatment of solids, damp, liquids, cans, plastic bottles with guaranteed cleaning of the organic from the inorganic> of 99, 5%, for the achievement of the above result:

Food waste separation process with Mavitec Green Energy systems.

Expired food products are collected in a hopper and sent,  by means of a screw system, to the Paddle Depacker (or Paddle Deapcker mod.S)

which, with its rotating shaft, separates the products from the packages.


The clean organic material will be collected under the Paddle Depacker (Paddle Depacker Mod.S) together with the optional residues deriving from the optional steps (see below). We guarantee the cleanliness of the organic from the inorganic > 99.5%.


The material separated from the pulp leaves the Paddle Depacker via an auger / conveyor and is placed in a container or box to be disposed of.


  1. In order to reduce the weight of the disposal, a dewatering press can be provided
  2. If you intend to enhance the packaging, a washing drum can also remove the organic residue still present
