InSinkErator®, the global leader and the inventor of the food waste disposer, is celebrating its 75th anniversary with the production of its 150 millionth disposal unit.
InSinkErator®, part of Emerson, brought the food waste disposer to market 75 years ago in 1938, and in 2007 the company launched the steaming hot water tap – delivering 98 degree centigrade hot water. InSinkErator® has gone from strength to strength over almost eight decades, and is now expanding to new markets across Asia, India, the Middle East and Africa.
InSinkErator®’s landmark anniversary comes at a time when waste disposal units are playing an increasingly critical environmental role in managing food scraps, and are gaining popularity on a global scale. A disposer has the potential to grind waste so it can be used for biogas or fertiliser, reducing the planet’s carbon footprint and offering a sustainable solution to food waste.
Emerson, based in St Louis, Missouri, USA, is a global leader in bringing technology and engineering together to provide innovative solutions for customers in industrial, commercial, and consumer markets around the world.
