The Twister Food Waste Depackager and Separator is making inroads into new markets due to its sustainably low microplastics production, and low energy use when compared with competitors.
Twister revealed today that their unique Food Waste Depackager and Separator has been sold to new clients in Europe and Asia. The small-footprint, low-energy-use plastic waste reprocessing plant has established itself in the expanding EU and Asian markets.
It has been in the works since 2016. It is a decentralised organic processing system with outstanding separation performance that was recently presented in Canada.
It ejects each opened, empty, and entire package. The clean food waste produced as a result of the “Twister” effect is devoid of microplastics and suited for anaerobic digestion.
Drycake® Chairman and Founder Mark Vanderbeken says:
“We wanted something different for Drycake’s Twister.”
“Anyone familiar with the food waste depackaging business would have noted that everyone else appears to begin their depackaging and separation of source-separated organics by lowering particle size.” Most rival depackagers use this to avoid congestion. To reduce the plastic to small bits, they mill, macerate, chop, or shred it. However, larger pieces are simpler to separate than smaller ones, and why not combine the depackaging and separation stages?”
So DryCake went back to the drawing board and created a technology that does not require any cutting and is not reliant on processing plastic by lowering particle size. In reality, they open and remove organic stuff in a high-speed vortex utilising shear forces and vibration to do as little harm as possible while producing as few microplastics as feasible.
As a result, it is a market leader in sustainability by lowering the danger of environmental damage caused by plastic pollution. Drycake took this course of action due to mounting evidence of “ocean microplastic ingestion,” which is harming ocean plankton and the food chain that feeds all marine life.
It also takes a lot of energy to slice, bash, and crush these materials. All of the moving parts of hammer mills, blades, and knife openers deteriorate and must be replaced. As a result, the Twister has minimal moving components.
“Whenever feasible, it must be preferable to prevent tearing up plastic packaging.” Then you won’t produce those microplastic particles in the first place,” Mark explained.
That’s why Drycake projected that this invention would be in great demand from the outset. Europe and Asia have excellent opportunities for this firm to disrupt the industry and become the industry-standard depackager supplier, with significant environmental advantages.
On the one side, they aim to provide their clients with the option to run sustainable plastic recycling businesses, reprocessing plastic waste for use as resin in new packaging in the “circular economy,” which is critical to avoiding runaway climate change. While also providing a high-quality organic paste to biogas facilities.
This is a valuable paste or “organic soup” that they can sell as feedstock to anaerobic digestion plant operators, allowing them to produce renewable energy in the form of biogas refined to biomethane. Compressed biomethane is referred to as Renewable Natural Gas (RNG), and it may be put into town and city gas mains to heat our houses.
It is also well-suited for usage as a low-emission transportation fuel during the transition phase while hydrogen technology is being developed.
The Twister idea is also relatively new, as its target market is broader than that of city/ regional MRFs and ERFs (Energy Recovery Facilities/ Incinerators). The smaaler size is excellent for several locations around a city, reducing RCV travel distances, saving collection costs and emissions, and increasing food waste collection efficiency.
By distributing Twister unit sites, waste collection crews will spend more time on the street collecting garbage and less time seated in the cabs of their RCVs on route to the MRF ERF or transfer station. In addition, if necessary, Drycake will design the whole process as well as the facility.
They want their clients to be impressed with Twister’s low energy use, low carbon footprint, low maintenance, and high uptime. It’s a long-term investment with excellent green credentials.
In fact, supermarkets, organisations, and institutions that manage catering facilities, as well as clients in the food and beverage sector, may find that they may meet their sustainability goals with just one Twister unit purchase. As a result, they reduce their company’s carbon footprint and can proudly display their genuinely green achievements for years to come.
Trying something new is always a risk, but they believe it is one worth taking. In this situation, not least to aid in the preservation of the global environment and to create a product that will aid in the achievement of Net-Zero Carbon 2050 emission objectives.
How the Vortex Based Twister Food Waste Depackager Wins Over Rivals
Twister Food Waste Depackager technology does this in at least four ways:
1. Conserving energy and water by combining two activities into a single unit.
2. Reducing reliance on fossil fuels (e.g., oil), which emit significantly more “greenhouse gas” carbon when manufacturers manufacture products from virgin plastic resins rather than recycling.
3. By converting food waste into a plastic-free paste or slurry that may be used to fuel a biogas plant, where the biogas plant generates renewable energy with very low net carbon emissions. Again, this reduces the need to exploit oil or gas geological reserves.
4. When organic slurry is digested and distributed on agricultural land, it reduces carbon emissions by lowering the farmer’s need to purchase chemical fertilisers. Geological reserves are exploited for traditional fertilisers. They use a lot of fossil fuel to extract and transport them, thus this idea helps to preserve the earth yet more.
Twister Food Waste Depackager – Conclusion
Since 1995, Drycake has been a global pioneer in separation solutions. It has supplied market-disrupting process equipment and design for sustainable waste reuse, recycling, and energy recovery internationally since its inception.
This isn’t Drycake’s first time defying convention. Previously, they created a stir with the Plastifloat while focusing on waste reuse and materials recovery for the municipal and industrial wastewater sectors. A simple yet efficient technique for separating plastic from fluids.
Drycake has expanded into Europe and Asia, in addition to past sales in the Americas, and its goal for the Twister Food Waste Depackager is to become well known worldwide. Readers may like to learn more at https://www.twisterseparator.com.

Let’s face it, while the topic of anaerobic digestion of faecal sludge, otherwise known as human dung, excrement, poo, poop, shit and excreta, is not a pleasant one. But we refuse to be apologetic to be opening an article about it. It is an opportunity for carbon emission reduction with a host of other advantages […]
It’s a fact that a number of the largest and most successful UK grocery stores make biogas from food waste to power themselves. They save money on waste disposal charges and do all of us a favour by reducing the carbon emissions which are endangering life as we know it on this planet. Think About […]
Anaerobic digestion in Northern Ireland in 2022 looks set for a future of development, especially as we get close to COP26. After a period of low activity and some bad press, the mood is changing. There is no doubt that a huge potential exists for the Northern Ireland biogas industry. Thanks for being with us […]
