We have worked hard to improve the existing technology, implementing them in new products which are a better way to solve the problems arising from the collection of food waste that is the main organic fraction of solid urban waste. An intelligent management of food waste has to foresee it’s reuse both for the production of energy (from anaeorobic digestion) and for land improvement (compost).

Company History

Ecofast Italia S.r.l. – Environmental Technology was established in Milan on November 23th 1998, at first to import and distribute food waste disposers for domestic and professional users, in Europe.

Since from the beginning, the company’s activity has been characterized by a more marked technical connotation, carrying out, first in Italy, not only important tests in the use of food waste disposes, but an innovative research and development activity to the invention of new patents for new products/technologies in order to enhance a more sustainable and economic management of food waste.

Starting form 2007, Ecofast Italia progressively becomes supplier of important foodservice equipment companies, connoting more and more its activity as a reliable industrial partner in the food waste management solutions of the catering industry.

Since May 2001, Ecofast Italia has been associated with the DRA (Food Waste disposers) Group within UIDA (Environmental Technology Suppliers’ Union), one of the Associations of ANIMA (the Federation of the Italian Associations of Mechanical and Engineering Industries) which is, in its turn, one of the most important Associations of the Italian Confederation of the Industry – Confindustria.

Since November 2008, Ecofast Italia is an active member of Energy Efficient Building Association (E2BA), the European association engaged in research and development of key technologies to implement in the building constructions, in harmony with the sustainability logics of the so called “Objective 20/20/20”.
