Persian BBC cover on composting with Big Hanna Composter inside the CompPod at Imperial College in London.

Imperial College in London we reported earlier composts with Big Hanna Composter inside the CompPod. The coverage on their effort to minimize waste going to landfill has got so much attention they have even got the credit for inventing the Big Hanna Composter by 'Next Generation Food'.  

'The composter, which has been created using research from the College's Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, will turn the waste from the South Kensington Campus's food outlets into compost used to enhance campus green spaces.' See the full article by clicking on this link:

The Imperial College, which ranked 3rd in Europe and 9th in the world overall by 'The Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2010-2011', has also got coverage on 'Persian BBC' a presentation which you can see by clicking here:

Association of Organics Recycling in UK has also covered the story. Look at:

We hear from Nic Dent, Imperial's Waste and Recycling Manager that more press is on the way and we will of course help to spread the word about their composting with Big Hanna Composter - so more to come...

'CompPod' at Imperial College compost with Big Hanna Composter

Food Waste Composter - Big Hanna Composter

Big Hanna Composter can now be seen (again) on You Tube and on  Imperial College's website where the "CompPod building" housing IMC's macerating and dewatering equipment (the Waste Pro) together with Big Hanna Composter is installed. Together they process 1.1 tonnes of food waste each week - some 80% is reduced through the macerating/dewatering. Then the Big Hanna composting unit convert the macerated and dewatered food waste into a rich organic compost.

Here's Imperial College in London own presentation:
"Imperial College London Facilities Management has built a stand-alone unit to house equipment for composting food waste.
CompPod, the unit provides a contained environment to carry out the composting process and could be relocated if desired. The CompPod is a world first and contains the technology required to process the 1.1 tonnes of food waste produced each week on the South Kensington Campus. The compost produced will be used to enhance grounds within the Campus.

The process makes a significant contribution in diverting waste from landfill, allowing the College to comply with the EU Landfill Directive. And is an excellent example of recycling in action. Download the case study for further details.

Please follow this link to open a window for a short video presentation (4m 20s), in which our Nic Dent and Gabriel Cebrian-Gomez provide you with more information about the CompPod."

We welcomes Imperial College in to the Big Hanna Composter family! This year 3 high-profile universities have choosen Big Hanna Composter - stay tuned for more news...
