PURPOSE: A food waste disposer using bio-chips is provided that converts organic material-containing food waste or proteins, fats and carbohydrates of animals and plants into water and carbon dioxide, minimizes generation of odor through double deodorizing functions and disposes food waste without residues using the bio-chips semipermanently, and a method for disposing food waste using the food waste disposer is provided.CONSTITUTION: A food waste disposer using bio-chips comprises: a food waste hopper(10) for injecting food waste; a storage part(22) in which bio-chips for degrading and fermenting the injected food waste are embedded such that the food waste is injected into the bio-chips; an agitator(24) formed in the storage part to agitate the food waste; a power transmission part(26) for rotating the agitator; an air supply part(29) comprising an air inlet(28) for flowing air in to degrade and ferment the food waste when operating the agitator; a heat exchange part(30) for consistently maintaining the heat to an ordinary temperature when fermentation heat is generated according to degradation and fermentation of the food waste by supplying air into the food waste through the air supply part; a deodorization part(32) for removing odor generated while food waste in the storage part is being degraded and fermented; an exhaust fan(34) for exhausting steam generated while the food waste in the storage part is being degraded and fermented to the outside; and a control part(36) for operating and controlling the power transmission part, the air supply part, the heat exchange part, the deodorization part and the exhaust fan.© KIPO 2006
