BioMaster provides caterers with a sustainable, green, environment-friendly way of dealing with food waste.
Whether it is scrap food from plates, vegetable peelings and meat trimmings from the kitchen, or waste oil, grease or any other liquid such as soups, BioMaster can turn it into something that benefits the planet.
BioMaster creates biomass, which fuels the new generation of anaerobic digestion plants in the UK to create energy from waste.
