THE COMPACT ORGANIC WASTE STATION (COWS™)
The Compact Organic Waste Station (COWS™) is an all-in-one solution for reducing the cost and environmental impact of organic waste disposal.
The COWS™ is small-scale, containerized anaerobic digester that converts food waste into renewable energy and nutrient-rich compost and fertilizer products. Organic waste generated at supermarkets, cafeterias, and hotels, is digested by bacteria in the absence of oxygen to produce a methane-rich biogas, similar to how a real cow digests food. This biogas is used onsite to heat water for our client, thereby reducing their utility bills, and the solids remaining after digestion are transported off-site to be refined into a natural compost or fertilizer product.
WHAT DO OUR COWS™ EAT?
The short answer is any organic material. In addition to fruits and vegetables, this includes meat, dairy, cardboard, and compostable dishware. Compared to most composters, which can only accept pre-consumer scraps and refuse meat and dairy, the COWS™ is an all-in-one solution for food waste and organic packaging.

- Overall reduced waste management costs
