InSinkErator equips ICCA with systems to cut waste

UAE, November 21, 2017

InSinkErator, a business unit of Emerson, a top manufacturer of food waste disposers for home and commercial use, has equipped the new wing of the Dubai-based International Centre for Culinary Arts (ICCA) with its latest innovations.

Supporting Dubai’s zero waste vision and the environmental objectives of the UAE Vision 2021,  InSinkErator’s innovations will boost the centre’s kitchen efficiency while reducing bulk waste, said a statement from the company.

Among the solutions installed, The WasteXpress system helps foodservice operations process organic waste for compost with maximum efficiency while increasing kitchen productivity and profitability by reducing food waste by up to 85 per cent, it said.

With the PowerRinse Waste Collection System, scrapping and pre-rinsing can be accomplished in one step prior to dishwashing. Solid waste is collected in a scrap basket. With the smallest screen size in the industry, PowerRinse ensures that most waste is captured, and less ends up down the drain.

The system also consumes 50 per cent less fresh water per hour than other collector systems on the market, it added.

InSinkErator hot water dispensers deliver up to 100 cups of near-boiling water per hour. Hot water on demand is an indispensable feature for hospitality and foodservice sector. The dispensers improve staff efficiencies, reduce serving time, require no expensive pipe runs, and are easy to install.

Mohamed Karam, senior business development manager, InSinkErator Middle East and Africa, said: “It is important to instil sustainable practices in the sector right from the grassroots. The hospitality sector will experience an exponential growth in the lead up to Expo 2020, and it is important that we have in place systems to manage food waste to prepare for the mega event.”

“The use of digester and disposers can divert considerable food waste from landfills. Waste captured can be converted for biogas production. This also supports UAE 2050 strategy that seeks to adopt as much as 50% of sources of power generation as green sources,” he added.

ICAA is an industry centred vocational education training (VET) centre and has been featured amongst the top 10 culinary institutes in the world, also awarded the “Recognition of Quality Culinary Education” by the World Chefs, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
