Power Knot Installs Two LFC-1000 Biodigesters at Compass One Mall

June 8, 2023

FREMONT, CA — Power Knot LLC, the market leader for onsite organic waste management solutions, announced today that it won the bid for the installation of biodigesters to manage the disposal of food waste at the Compass One Mall in Singapore. This bid was won through Power Knot’s partner in Singapore, Datumstruct. Datumstruct (S) Pte Ltd is a leading solution provider for workplace solutions, environmental technology, and command centers.

Compass One is a suburban shopping mall that was built as an integrated development with a condominium, Compass Heights. The mall arranged a competitive bid for their requirements which resulted in the purchase of two LFC-1000 biodigesters. These were integrated with a conveyor feed system and installed by Datumstruct in August 2022.

The LFC® biodigester is a machine that digests food waste. These machines are used by commercial kitchens, food courts in shopping malls, corporate cafeteria, prisons, and cruise ships. They reduce 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.

“Many Singaporean companies are moving towards modern solutions for age-old issues such as waste management,” said Thomas Toh, Technical Sales Director at Datumstruct. “The use of modern technology allows these companies to not only track the amount of waste that’s being diverted from the landfill, but reduce it by understanding the source and types of waste.”

“Key to the selection of the Power Knot LFC biodigesters is the ability to remotely feed the machines and to track the source or type of the waste using NFC cards,” said Iain Milnes, president of Power Knot. “Datumstruct installed two machines back to back and integrated the controller for the conveyor to existing signals from the LFC-1000 biodigesters. This allows waste to be deposited to a machine that can accept it, so the total capacity of the two machines is available for the mall. These features in the LFC biodigester outweigh what any competitor is capable of providing.”

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. The grouping feature on the LFC Cloud allows the mall to view the total waste for the two machines.
