Building blocks - simple sugars, amino acids, and fatty acids

The different building blocks that come out of food waste when digested by enzymes are simple sugars, amino acids, and fatty acids.

The different building blocks

Simple sugars, also known as monosaccharides, are the most basic form of sugar and are easily absorbed by the body. They include glucose, fructose, and galactose. Simple sugars are the main source of energy for the body and are used to produce ATP, the molecule that stores and releases energy for the body to use.

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. Proteins are important for many functions in the body, including building and repairing tissues, creating enzymes, and producing hormones. There are 20 different amino acids that are used to make all of the different proteins in the body. When food waste is digested, the enzymes break down the proteins into their individual amino acids, which can then be absorbed by the body.

Fatty acids are a type of lipid that provides energy for the body. They are important for maintaining healthy skin, hair, and cells. Fatty acids can also be used to produce energy when glucose levels are low.

Building blocks and the use of them

In summary, the different building blocks of food waste have a variety of uses, including improving soil fertility, reducing waste in sewage and waste water treatment plants, and enhancing soil structure and overall health.

1- Fertilizer: Simple sugars, amino acids, and fatty acids that come out of food waste can be used as a source of nitrogen, phosphorus, and other nutrients in fertilizer production. These nutrients are essential for the growth and development of plants, and the addition of food waste can help to improve soil fertility and crop yields.

2- Sewage and Waste Water Treatment Plants: In these treatment plants, the building blocks of food waste can be used as a source of food for the microorganisms that break down the waste. The microorganisms consume the simple sugars, amino acids, and fatty acids and release CO2, which helps to reduce the amount of waste in the water.

3- Soil Enhancement: The building blocks of food waste can also be used to enhance soil fertility by providing essential nutrients for the growth of beneficial microorganisms. The microorganisms help to improve soil structure, increase water retention, and reduce soil erosion. This can help to improve the overall health of the soil and increase crop yields.

our three key pillars

In today’s environmentally conscious world, our three product lines stand out for their impactful contributions. Our food waste digesters efficiently convert organic waste into valuable resources, reducing CO2 and methane emissions and cutting waste disposal costs.

The enzymatic products we offer provide effective cleaning, pest control and soil enhancement solutions while minimizing chemical usage, promoting a safer and greener working environment.

Additionally, our green packaging alternatives eliminate the need for fossil-based plastics, reducing environmental harm and appealing to eco-conscious consumers.

Additionally, enzymes can help improve soil structure by increasing the activity of microorganisms, that help create a healthy, nutrient-rich soil. 

 Here are some of the benefits of using a liquid food waste digester compared to a curbside collection system.

Our machines discharge the digested food waste into the sewage that eventually ends up at a wastewater treatment plant, where all the sewage wastewater is treated.

Did you know that food waste contains over 75% moisture on average? That means only a quarter of food waste constitutes solid matter, while the rest is water.

Enzymatic decomposition is a process that uses enzymes to break down complex organic compounds into simpler molecules. Enzymes are biocatalysts that speed up chemical reactions in living organisms.

Methane (CH4) is a potent greenhouse gas that plays a significant role in global warming. It is the second most important greenhouse gas after carbon dioxide (CO2) in terms of its impact on climate change. 

By breaking down organic matter and releasing essential nutrients, these enzymes help improve soil fertility and promote plant growth.

Wastewater treatment processes are integral not only for purifying water but also for extracting valuable raw materials from sewage, contributing to sustainability and resource conservation.

In the dynamic world of waste management and environmental responsibility, businesses and governments face increasingly larger challenges.
