Abstract:
A new inflight waste management system has been developed for commercial aircraft that enables on-board personnel to collect and source-separate waste and recyclable fractions using a compartmentalized trolley. The trolley is then inserted into a galley-based, high force compactor. A microprocessor controls a hydraulic carriage assembly that automatically shuttles on rails over each of three bins within the trolley, and contents are compacted.This space saving compaction technology maintains the benefits of inflight compaction, reduces inflight and ground waste handling and processing time, and promotes or expands recycling programs.
