ICC Green Energy, an arm of reputable general contractor, International Construction Consortium Ltd. (ICC) introduces a range of garbage composter machines that can convert organic waste in to compost within just 24 hours. The range of machines covers processing capacities suitable for domestic, condominium and commercial use. The domestic unit called ‘Food Cycler’ comes with built-in activated carbon filters that eliminates any processing smell. 

It could process 1.5 kg per cycle of six to eight hours, consuming electricity less than 1Kw/hour. This equipment is very simple to use, just fill the bucket provided and place it in the machine, close the lid and press start. Once the cycle is finished it will stop. Activated carbon filters are available if required to reduce processing odour. Commercial units work the same way with 24 hours for processing. The larger units could be supplied with bin lifters to make loading easy. They also discharge the finished product automatically.

Commenting on the product, ICC Director Nihal de Saram said, “ICC Green Energy Solutions has long been in the business of marketing environmentally sustainable equipment to conserve resources. With the launch of the quick composter, we hope to encourage the practice of replenishing Mother earth with what we so systematically extricate from it; the composters are a way of achieving this easily. The mineral content of the converted food waste will enrich the soil when it is used as a fertiliser.” 

ICC Green Energy Solutions is also the supplier of a smart modular sewage treatment system namely the ExtraPac system that treats sewage/wastewater and transforms it into useable water. There are over fifteen units operational in Sri Lanka today and it is approved by the CEA. The Company is also a leading supplier of solar panels, with current installations of over 11 megawatts installed in the country.
