Accelerated Compost Ltd (ACL) has recently completed a re-design of the Rocket® Composter intended to combat rising raw material costs and to simplify the process for new operators. The re-designed Rocket® will take-off at RWM '08 from stand number 136.
The re-design of the Rocket® uses around 20% less raw material than the original design enhancing its sustainability and helping to keep rising costs down for the end-user.
“Passing on the raw material increases to the customer didn't seem the right thing to do, so we put our heads together and came up with a new look for the machine that minimised those costs while improving the integrity of the composting process,” commented Simon Webb, MD of ACL.
The re-design includes changes to the Rocket's® control panel allowing Rocket® engineers to fine-tune the composting process to each customers' individual processing needs. The Rocket® is a revolutionary on-site solution to the problem of food and organic waste disposal, including cooked and uncooked meat and fish, transforming it into a high grade composted product in just 14 days
Simon continues, “This is great news and not just in economic terms for us and our customers. Using 20% less material also increases the environmental performance of the Rocket®.”
The re-designed Rocket® is currently on show at the Urban Gardening exhibition at Urbis, Manchester until September when it will be transferred to RWM.
The Rocket® In-Vessel Composter is manufactured and distributed through Accelerated Compost Ltd. Offices in Cheshire, Perthshire, East Sussex, County Wexford and Worcester ensure UK-wide distribution and prompt after sales service. The Rocket® is currently being used as a solution to the food waste disposal problem for small scale commercial and industrial applications throughout the UK from Community Composters to Schools and Colleges, Hotels, Restaurants and Estates.
