FREMONT, CA — Power Knot LLC, the market leader for onsite organic waste management solutions, announced today that it has been selected as one of the top environmental engineering companies in California.

Power Knot was selected by California Best Startup, a startup magazine with a focus on driving inbound investment into startups and companies within California. 

We are proud to be recognized as one of the top environmental companies in the state of California,” said Iain Milnes, President of Power Knot. “Our success lies with our product family of integrated organic waste systems.”

The LFC® biodigester is a machine that digests food waste. These machines are usually installed in a commercial kitchen and reduces the expense, inconvenience, mess, and carbon footprint of disposing of waste food that would otherwise be hauled to a landfill. Power Knot has ten different sizes that digest from 9 kg (20 lb) per day to 3000 kg (6600 lb) per day of food waste. With many hundreds of installations globally, the LFC biodigester has proven to be reliable, safe, and cost effective.

All LFC biodigesters automatically connect to the LFC Cloud, Power Knot’s revolutionary continuous data analytics system. The LFC Cloud shows statistics on usage, diagnostics, and service schedules, and can be accessed from any device anywhere in the world without installing an app. The LFC biodigester securely sends data about the operation of the LFC biodigester to the server and that data is retained for five years. All data that is available on the LFC touch screen is sent to the LFC Cloud where a user can easily create reports for stakeholders. 

“We estimate that around 35% of all LFC biodigesters are currently connected to the LFC Cloud. Based on recorded and known data, the LFC biodigester has helped digest over 7.6 million kg of waste in 2022,” said Iain Milnes.

Other Power Knot products include the WEP-100 Effluent System and the SBT-140 Bin Tipper. The WEP Effluent System is an effluent system that can be used in conjunction with the LFC biodigester to pump waste water in places without a grade level drain. The SBT Bin Tipper Is a stainless steel bin tipper that can be safely used in kitchens and other places that demand cleanliness and hygiene.
