Constantly Digesting

The LFC is an aerobic bio-digester that disposes of your waste food safely and cost effectively.

Simple and Safe Operation

The LFC is a fully enclosed automatic composting machine that disposes of most food matter within 24 hours. The LFC can be used to save money at a variety of facilities that have waste food.

Touch Sensitive

The LFC is constantly digesting the waste food and you can add waste food at any time. All configuration, indications, reports, and statistics are available through the touch screen. The operator doesn’t need to use the touch screen and for most applications the default settings work well. All configurable parameters are protected by the password.

Cloud Control

The LFC can connect through its Ethernet port to a cloud server maintained by Power Knot. The LFC securely sends data about the operation of the LFC to the server and that data is retained for five years. The data includes the amount of waste food digested hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly, the amount of CO2 di­verted from the landfill during these periods. If you have multiple machines, you can aggregate the data into a single report.

Remotely, you can view the health of the system including all diagnostics and when the LFC requires scheduled maintenance.

You have access to view and manipulate the data from any computer, tablet, or smartphone anywhere in the world. This access is available as long as you own the LFC at no charge to you.
