  Welcome to our Frequently Asked Questions Page.
 
Q I am interested in your Biofeed animal feed system, but I am not sure it suits our needs.
Please provide the details in the questionnaire, and we will advise you if our system is what you need.
Q We are a Municipality, and we are not interested in building and operating a plant. We simply want to dispose of waste in a safe and cost effective manner.

 

 

Please contact us. We are in constant touch with investors who may be interested in investing in your area and building the plant as a commercial venture. Your Municipality would simply have to deliver the waste to the plant.
Q Our Municipality wants to build a processing plant, but we do not have the capital.

 

 

Please contact us. We will assist with arranging suitable finance, including assistance with the preparation of feasibilities, business plans, etc.
Q With the Bio Culture system why isn't the waste taken directly from the garbage trucks into the sorting process without storing it first?

 

 

The Bio Culture system ensures that the fertiliser produced by the process is consistent in quality. The total system contributes to that consistency, and an important part of that is the blending. By dumping the garbage as it arrives it is possible to blend the waste, to ensure that if there is waste with an unusual high content of, say, carbon [e.g. , rice straw, ] it is not processed before it is blended with waste with less carbon, but higher in other nutrients.
This ensures that the end product's quality is always consistent.
Q Why is the inorganic matter separated by hand rather than by machinery?
There is no machinery made in the world that can take out all inorganic matter from organic waste. In systems that shred and grind the waste prior to composting it becomes necessary to have workers physically check the waste prior to grinding to avoid costly grinder repairs if a piece of metal gets through the separation process.
The Bio Culture system recognises that there are no automated separation systems that are efficient enough to eliminate manual workers checking the waste, and instead eliminates the automated system, and leaves it to workers to separate.
This saves a very large expenditure on machinery which is deficient in its purpose.
The Bio Culture process includes a number of separation stages, including manual operators, vibrating screens, metal detectors, magnets, and a quality control team, to ensure that the processed waste consists solely of organic matter. .
The Bio Culture system is clearly the best balance of efficiency, cost effectiveness, and produces a quality product.
Q Is the client bound to enter into an ongoing contract with Bio Culture to provide additives for the life of the plant?
No. Bio Culture will provide as part of the transfer of technology all formulas and additive requirements, and the client is free to access them at the most competitive price available.
Q Who owns the processing plant once its operating?
The client. Bio Culture is simply the provider of the technology, the design and blue print of the plant, all project management and supervision during construction, training of key personnel, and commissioning of the plant.
On completion, once the plant is operating, and personnel are trained in the operation, Bio Culture has completed its obligations, and leaves, the same as a contractor of an office tower would do on completion.
Q Does Bio Culture have exclusivity on importing the plant and equipment?

 

 

The Bio Culture system is the only system where over 70% of the plant and equipment can almost always be sourced in the country where the client is located. The client is given the option to source its own plant at prices cheaper than the amount allowed in the contract, subject to compliance with Bio Culture's design and specification. This way the client can sometimes make substantial savings on the contract amount.
Q Is the animal feed a safe product?
The Biofeed system puts the waste mixture through a comprehensive sorting and pasteurising process that renders it as safe as any commercial feed in the world. There are very few commercial animal feed manufacturing processes with the same emphasis on safety as the Biofeed system.
The plant includes an onsite laboratory that carries out constant quality and safety checks throughout the manufacturing process.
Q What type of animal feed is produced from waste?
Any type the plant owner decides on. The waste mixture provides a safe base raw material comprising of many of the proteins and nutrients necessary for all feed stocks. Depending on marketing and customer needs the plant owner can add the required nutritional additives, food colouring and flavour to produce the required feed.
