Boston Devices Ltd. (www.bostondevices.lk) has introduced a machine to the Sri Lankan market that converts any type of food waste, including fruits, vegetables, fish, meats, etc. to animal fodder and carbonic fertiliser. This mechanical marvel that has been manufactured by GAIA Corp. South Korea evaporates the moisture and converts the food waste into a fine powder. What is significant is that this fine power is odourless.

This machine provides a number of various solutions for establishments, i.e. factories, houses, apartment complexes, office buildings, hotels, local councils, etc. where a significant volume of food waste is gathered on a regular basis. Boston Devices has a number of devices that can convert between 10 kilos to 110 tons of food waste into animal fodder or carbonic fertiliser daily. By allowing individuals and corporations to reuse food waste, this device can play an important role in improving our food security. Similar devices manufactured by GAIA Corp. have been installed at Heathrow and Gatwick Airports in the UK and the tallest building in the world, Burj Khalifa, Dubai. Any kind of food waste can be converted by this machine within eight hours and a single person can operate the device. There is also a facility where food waste can be inserted into the machine automatically.
