Transform Your Life by Drying Food Garbage

The many problems of food garbage

For a clean home

Control odors and flies while preventing leaks

・Food garbage containing water rots easily and leads to emitting odors and attracting flies.
・Leaking from wet food garbage will soil your floors and clothing.

・Since dried garbage doesn’t rot, bad odors and flies are kept in check.
・And there is no need to worry about leakage.

Makes taking out the trash easy

Weight is reduced by 80%.

・Because 80% of food garbage is water, taking out the trash involves carrying that heavy water, too.

・And since water makes food garbage rot quickly, trash must be taken out on a strict schedule.

[The many problems of food garbage]

・Drying food garbage reduces its weight by 80%, making it much easier to take it out.

・You can also store dried food garbage for longer periods of time and bring it all out at once,reducing the number of times you have to take it out.

Make burying food garbage easier

・Dried food garbage can be made smaller by breaking it up into pieces.

・This allows it to be buried in smaller holes and helps prevent animals from digging it up.

Use it as organic fertilizer

・Food garbage dried with the food garbage dryer can be used as an organic fertilizer.

Reasons for Drying Food Garbage

  • When water content remains even after draining…
  • It is heavy and bulky
  • It leaks, has unpleasant dampness, and is impossible to fully drain
  • Has that smell unique to food garbage and foul odor of decay
  • Attracts bugs and flies
  • Animals like dogs, cats, and crows break into it
  • You can forget to take it out or be unable to due to not being home or because of time or weather constraints
  • You want to reuse it as organic fertilizer

All of these can be solved by drying!

Effects of Drying

Suppresses the growth of bacteria

Test Material: 50 g of our company’s standard food garbage and 50 g of dried garbage

Does Not Rot Over Time

Test Material: 750 g of food garbage and 250 g of dried garbage (created by drying 750 g of food garbage)
Test Environment: Test material was left exposed to the open air.

Weight Decreased by About 80%

* When test food garbage (produced through the manufacturer’s specifications) is dried in the PCL series for a period of six hours. Study conducted by the manufacturer.

Making good use of dried matter as unfermented organic materials.

There are several types of food garbage processing machine and processed matter have following defferences.

Food Garbage As It Is
Features of processing machine

Drying by low-temperature air about 60℃ to 80℃ using low power heater. Because of 80% of food garbage is made of water, dried garbage is reduced the weight by one-fifth.
No stirring

Drying by high-temperature air about 130℃ using high power heater. Because of 80% of food garbage is made of water, dried garbage is reduced the weight by one-fifth.
With stirring

Mixig base material and food garbage, accelerates decomposition by the action of microorganisms. Breaking down food garbage into water and carbon dioxide gas to reduce weight.
With stirring

Placed it in gardens or fields, food garbage is decomposed and fermented into composts by small animals and microorganisms in the soil.

About the effect of dried processed matter
◎ The Most Suitable

Unfermented Organic Fertilizers
Food garbage which is dried by low temperature of 60℃~80℃ becomes the most suitable unfermented organic fertilizers. Because it is possible to process fish bones without separation by food garbage dryer, we can use them as phosphorus fertilizer.

Unfermented Organic

The drying process at a high temperature of 130℃ while stirring may result in partial carbonization of food garbage, which may make it less effective a organic fertilizers.

Fermented Organic

Food garbage is broken down to compost by microorganisms, then which becomes fermented organic fertilizers. During the bio-based process, almost all the garbage is broke down, which makes it less effective as organic fertilizers.

Fermented Organic

Food garbage is broken down to compost by microorganisms,then which becoms fermented organic fertilizers. It is all right to use food garbage as fertilizer without drying, but there is some possibility of rot due to moisture.

Organic fertilizer is divided into fermentation organic fertilizer and unfermented organic fertilizer. Fermentation fertilizer contains cow dung compost, chicken manure compost and bark compost, etc. On the other hand, unfermented organic fertilizer is soybean meal, rice bran and fish meal, etc. Food garbage compost is organic matter, so you can use it as organic fertilizer which is easy to gain in daily life. It is OK to use food garbage as fertilizer without drying, but there is some possibility of rot due to moisture. Therefore, it becomes a more manageable fertilizer when processed through a food garbage processor.

Unfermented fertilizer effectively cultivate microorganism under the ground, so dried food garbage is most appropriate to keeping soil in good condition. Our food garbage dryer is adopted warm-air drying method, and you can use dried food garbage as unfermented organic fertilizer. Furthermore, our food garbage dryer can process fish bones, which is utilized as phosphorus fertilizer, without separation.
Because ingredients of fertilizer depend on food garbage type, by understanding food garbage feature (refer to table1), it is possible to customize fertilizer by yourself.

Tabel 1. Feature of food garbage
Ingredients abundant in food garbage (utility) The type of food garbage
Carbon (Microbial nutrients, soil improvement) Rice, wheat, vegetable peels, etc. (Carbohydrate-rich foods)
Nitrogen (Microbial and plant nutrients) Meat, fish meat, etc. (Protein-rich foods)
Phosphorus (Microbial and plant nutrients) Meat bone, fish bone, etc.
Potassium (Microbial and plant nutrients) Vegetable, fruit, seaweed, etc.

Experience organic agriculture by vegetable gardening at home!


It does not use pesticide and chemical fertilizer in organic farming. Additionally, the crops grew by organic farming is slightly bitter and harsh and more active ingredient such as antioxidant than crops grew by conventional farming (chemical farming). That is why organic farming is safer and make better tasting crops.
In recent years, interest in SDGs has increased, and sustainability in agriculture has been attaching attention, accelerating the trend to convert to organic farming. Organic farming uses organic fertilizers, which are gradually broken down by microorganisms in the soil and absorbed by the plants. If sustainable “material-cycle agriculture” in which materials circulate in this way spreads, it will help solve food problems and maintain natural resources and biodiversity.
Similarly in home gardens, dried food garbage can be used as organic fertilizer, allowing the soil in the planter to be used again and again. For the first step to sustainable action, can we experience organic agriculture by vegetable gardening at home.

Procedure to use as organic fertilizer.

1. In as standard planter with a width of 65 cm (about 12L of soil), add about eight paper cups worth of dried garbage that has been broken into small pieces about 1 cm in size.

・A paper cup is about 200mL.
・If some dried garbage is too hard to break by your hands, cut it into small pieces with scissors or remove it.

2. Mix dried garbage well with soil, and water, then leave for a week.

3. Sow seeds and cover with soil, then water them.

The guideline of fertilizer effect is 2 or 3 months.

※Fertilizer should be sprinkled thinly over the top of the soil for houseplants and other. (Over spreading)
