BioChop for food waste and by-product pre-treatment

Landia offers a wide range of solutions for handling by-products from the food industry.  We have solutions for pumping, mixing, chopping, and preserving different kinds of food wastes and by-products. 

Let us find a solution together

The Landia BioChop is a complete processing unit (tank, grinder, and automation) that mechanically macerates and liquefies the food wastes and by-products, whereby the liquefied product can be stored and/or transported.  The BioChop technology can be used in commercial food preparation facilities, produce retailers, and other sizable food waste generators.  The BioChop pre-treatment technology makes the organic material readily available for use in Anaerobic Digestion plants. 
Landia offers the BioChop pre-treatment technology in several standard sizes, to process anywhere from 1,000 lbs/day to over 50,000 lbs/day of food waste, and we can customize the solution for the clients’ specific requirements. 

BioChop Pasteurization System for Biogas Plants

The Landia BioChop Pasteurizer is a complete solution for pathogen reduction in feedstocks and digestate. It offers a compact and user-friendly design and high treatment capacity. The system provides particle size reduction and ensures that by-products from, for example, the food industry are heat-treated, or pasteurized, at 70°C for one hour.

Reliable Pasteurization System 

Landia BioChop Pasteurizer is constructed of reliable high-quality components. The system is equipped with a double stainless steel tank wall that acts as a heating jacket, from which heat is transferred by circulating hot water. Therefore, no external heat exchanger is required.
What you get with BioChop: 
• Landia chopper pump for chopping, mixing and emptying
• Landia side-entry propeller mixer
• Gate valves with stainless-steel knife gates
• Complete user-friendly controls with touchscreen and integrated data logger
• Standard sizes: 2.5 m3, 5 m3, 8 m3 and 25 m3
