Power Knot LLC, a provider of on site organic waste management solutions, announced that it has successfully installed an LFC-500 biodigester at Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru. The LFC-500 biodigester is capable of digesting up to 1500 kg (3300 lb) of food waste per day.
The Maldives is a nation of small islands in the Indian Ocean that is a popular tourist destination spot. Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru is a natural 44-acre wilderness in the secluded Baa Atoll UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. The Resort incorporates 103 thatched bungalows and villas of contemporary Maldivian design, featuring four restaurants and bars as well as in-villa and specialty dining.
“Food waste directly contributes to greenhouse gas emissions and the effects are exacerbated on small island resorts,” said Faisal Ibrahim, Environment and Sustainability Leader at Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru. “The LFC biodigester is a clean, compact solution that allows us to take care of food waste without dumping it in a landfill or the ocean. Upon installation, the biodigester has been running nonstop to dispose of the food waste generated by our restaurants without polluting the environment. We have been able to uphold Four Seasons Resorts Maldives commitment to sustainability and green initiatives by reducing our carbon footprint and our impact on the planet for future generations.”
