SEM Capture

We realise that disposing of food waste can often result in flooding and businesses incur unnecessary expenses. This can include potato peel, potato starch, or fats, oil and greases.

How it works?

Our filtration technology, Capture, is an innovative filtration system which helps food processors comply with waste regulations.

The system works by taking waste from the macerator, separating the waste solids and compacting these so these can be easily transported for recycling. This means that the total volume of solids within the waste stream is dramatically reduced.

The system then power flushes the wastewater down the drains, preventing them from starch deposits. The Capture unit is easy-to-operate, compact and quick to install. The filtration system is eco-friendly and only requires a simple water connection to function.
