Frequently asked questions

What is ECOBOT?


ECOBOT is a range of fully automated Organic waste management systems capable of converting all types of organic food and garden waste to fertilizer without any dedicated manpower.




What types of waste can be processed in ECOBOT?


All types of organic waste including vegetable and fruit peels and leftovers, meat waste, fish waste, egg shells, garden waste, leaves, natural tissues, fast food waste, bread, rice, small bones, compostable bags and cutlery, animal manure can be processed in ECOBOT.




What types of waste cannot be processed in ECOBOT?


Any hard articles and inorganic waste like glass, plastics, metals, wood, large branches, coconut shells, large bones and similar items should not be fed into ECOBOT. In case the waste has a high oil/fat content, a small amount of saw dust/coco peat/newspaper/rice husk may be added as absorbent due to the insulating nature of oil.




Are there any harmful gases or odor emitted during the process?


No Harmful Gases are emitted. It is a odorless and emission free process making it a suitable technology for installations in residential as well as commercial locations. The exhaust outlet should be connected to a closed sewage line for removal of any odour generated during the decomposition process.




Does the waste need to be shredded before feeding?


No seperate shredding is required. ECOBOT is an all-in-one solution equipped with an in-built high strength, corrossion resistant 4140 alloy shredder capable of shredding the toughest of waste particles. The operator simply has to feed the waste into the waste inlet and the waste is automatically shredded before entering the conversion chamber below.




What is the purpose of the secondary inlet?


ECOBOT is equipped with a primary shredder inlet as well as a secondary inlet. This secondary inlet can be used to add semi liquid waste as well as it can be utilized by the operator for viewing the process status.




What sizes are the ECOBOT systems available in?


ECOBOT is available in capacities wanging from 25 kgs to 5000 kgs waste per day.




What type of locations can ECOBOT be installed in?


ECOBOT can be installed at any location generating more than 15 kgs organic waste per day. This includes Residential/Apartment complexes, Hotels, Commercial complexes, Supermarkets, Cafeterias, Canteens, Factories, Villa schemes, Hospitals, Municipal waste processing centers, Restaurants or any other location where food waste is being generated.




What is the difference between ECOBOT EB and IVNC models?


ECOBOT EB is a 24 hour waste converter which is an electrical heat based system capable of converting the waste to soil enhancer within 24 hours. This does not require the addition of any sawdust or drying agent.

ECOBOT IVNC is a in-vessel natural composter which operates using the heat generated by microbes to produce a natural compost. The process time for the IVNC models ranges from 7-11 days. Additional 15-20% sawdust needs to be added in the machine along with the waste and bio culture for the process.




Which ECOBOT variant is suitable for me?


The EB variant is suitable for majority of the locations as it is the most compact machine that can be placed in the smallest of spaces. However, it requires a 24 hour power supply in order to operate.

The IVNC variant is suitable for locations where there is a larger space available. It can also be installed in locations with erratic power supply.
Both variants are fully automatic PLC based systems and come equipped with an in-built shredding, aeration and churning mechanism.




What happens if the operator feeds any hard article in the machine?


Feeding of any hard/inorganic material can cause mechanical damage. However, to reduce the risk of damage, all ECOBOT variants come equipped with mechanical protection systems and sensors that automatically stop the machine if any hard article is jammed in the conversion chamber. Audio alarms and visual warnings on the Touchscreen inform the operator of the issue.




What is the difference between the FSS and PSS models?


FSS models are entirely manufactured using high grade stainless steel capable of lasting decades without any rusting.
PSS models are manufactured using powder coated mild steel which can have a shorter life span. However, the PSS model is more economical compared to FSS.
Both models use stainless steel for the internal conversion tanks and input and output doors.




Is it easy to operate ECOBOT?


ECOBOT is a Feed-and-forget system designed for ease of use. Its a simple 3 step process that requires no more than 1 person part time to operate. Watch the following video for details:




How can I use the end product generated from ECOBOT?


ECOBOT achieves upto 90% volume reduction of the waste. The end product generated is a dry, powdery, soil like fertilizer that can be mixed with soil in 1:10 ratio to be used for gardening or horticulture activities.




Does the waste burn in ECOBOT EB models if not switched off after 24 hours?


The EB models are equipped with our proprietary moisture sensor which detects the moisture level in the waste. As soon as the process is completed and the appropriate moisture level is achieved the machine automatically goes in to a Power Saving mode. There is no possibility of burning of the waste.
