Who we solve problems for

800x500Food industry (16)

Innovative Waste Recycling aims to solve specific problems for various stakeholders in the food production and supply chain industry. One of the main problems we address is optimizing waste handling processes for food producers and those in the food chain. By optimizing these processes, we can assist in managing and disposing of waste and byproducts in a sustainable manner.

This includes helping with hauling, shipping, and disposal of production waste, as well as handling quality waste that needs to be segregated or destroyed. Additionally, we provide solutions for disposing of challenging items such as chemicals or other miscellaneous items.

Collaboration with Companies

At IWR, we collaborate with companies to address their specific challenges. We have a broad and deep knowledge base, particularly in the field of food production. This allows us to understand the constraints faced by food producers and the intricacies of waste and byproduct production. By working closely with our clients, we can help them overcome challenges related to food production, shipping constraints, and meeting sustainability key performance indicators (KPIs).

Common Issues Resolved by IWR

IWR has successfully resolved several common issues faced by companies.

Inability to handle waste and byproducts

One common issue is when a location's current waste and byproduct management group is unable to handle their waste and byproducts at the last minute. This situation can potentially lead to shutdowns. In such cases, IWR receives a call and provides a solution, regardless of the location.

High volume of loads due to segregation or quality issues

Another issue we often address is the high volume of loads caused by segregation or quality issues. Companies may struggle to find suitable destinations for such waste.

Challenges related to local regulations

We also handle challenges related to local regulations, such as restrictions on certain types of products or high minimum free liquid content. Our expertise allows us to effectively resolve these issues.

Improving Sustainability

IWR has helped improve the sustainability of food production companies in several ways. One significant contribution is landfill avoidance. Many companies we work with send nearly 100% of their waste byproducts to landfills. Through our efforts, we have been able to reduce this percentage to 50% or lower, with further reductions achieved through concentrated efforts. Landfill avoidance means that the waste no longer goes to landfills but is diverted to sustainable options such as composting, anaerobic digestion, animal feed, incineration, or biochar production. These alternatives have a significantly lower carbon footprint and are more environmentally friendly than traditional landfill disposal methods.

Support in Reducing Waste and Increasing Efficiency

Our support for food production companies in reducing waste and increasing efficiency begins with understanding their specific issues. While we may not directly consult on food production processes, we can provide recommendations that help reduce waste. Our primary goal is waste reduction, followed by finding innovative ways to gather waste and segregate it effectively.

Alternative Solutions for Non-Recyclable Waste

For waste that cannot be recycled, we help companies identify alternative solutions to prevent it from ending up in landfills. Our expertise enables us to explore sustainable options such as composting, anaerobic digestion, animal feed, incineration, or biochar production.

Optimizing Back-End Processes

We extend our support to the back end of food production companies, particularly in busy and overworked areas like the warehouse. Our team assists in optimizing processes such as drop trailers, loading patterns, and coordination based on production needs. By streamlining waste management and logistics, we strive to ensure seamless operations and increased efficiency in food production plants.
