Headquartered in the US, with several other locations across the globe, Power Knot provides environmentally sound products that help reduce costs while reducing the carbon footprint, such as its hero product, the LFC® biodigester that reduces waste. We find out more as the company is named in the MEA Business Awards 2022.
Power Knot is the market leader for onsite organic waste management solutions. Founded in Silicon Valley, California in 2009, the company’s mission is to provide safe and economically sound solutions for commercial, industrial, and military customers seeking to improve and to make a positive impact on their environment.
“Our technologies are proven and available today, have been in reliable use for many years, and offer a payback period typically of less than two years,” explains Iain Milnes, President of Power Knot. “Our products can be used independently or in conjunction with one another.”
One of the firm’s champion products is the LFC® biodigester, a machine that digests food waste. These machines are usually installed in a commercial kitchen and reduce the expense, inconvenience, mess, and carbon footprint that comes with the disposing of waste food which would be hauled to a landfill.
The LFC® biodigester is a fully enclosed machine that disposes of most food matter within 24 hours. Once it is installed, users can add food waste at any time. Water is injected into the LFC® biodigester to maintain equilibrium for the microorganisms, to rapidly digest the organic material. A rotating arm slowly churns the waste food to constantly mix the old food, new food, oxygen, and microorganisms to enhance the decomposing function.
All LFC® biodigesters automatically connect to the LFC Cloud, Power Knot’s revolutionary continuous data analytics system. The LFC Cloud shows statistics on usage, diagnostics, and service schedules, and can be accessed from any device anywhere in the world without installing an app. All data that is available on the LFC touch screen is sent to the LFC Cloud where a user can easily create reports for stakeholders.
Power Knot has installations of the innovative product throughout the GCC region with many major hotels, shopping malls, and food service companies.
“As the premiere supplier of biodigesters in the region, we are proud of our reputation to supply products that have a well-earned reputation for quality and reliability,” says Shakeel Ahmed, Regional Director of Sales and Marketing of Power Knot Middle East, based in Dubai.
The LFC® biodigester from Power Knot was recently awarded the prestigious title of Most Innovative Eco-Friendly Waste Food Disposal Solution in the MEA Business Awards 2022.
“We are proud to be recognised as one of the top environmental solutions in the Middle East,” elaborates Iain. “Based on recorded and known data, the LFC® biodigester has helped digest over 7.6 million kg of waste in 2022.”
Shakeel adds, “This award amplifies our high level of service to our customers.”
