Key Products

Key Products

LFC Biodigester: a machine that digests food waste; this keeps organic material out of landfills and saves the planet. The product is usually positioned in a commercial kitchen and saves the cost, mess, and inconvenience of having waste hauled off site.

SBT Bin Tipper: a battery operated bin tipper made of stainless steel. It is suitable for places demanding hygiene or portability and saves workers from lifting heavy garbage bins.

WEP Effluent Pump: a pump and filter machine made of stainless steel. It can pump effluent that may be fed by gravity a long distance or to a higher point and at the same time can filter out particulates.

LFC Cloud: continuous data analytics system that tracks carbon dioxide offset and the amount of waste weighed

Our products can be used independently or in conjunction with one another.
