Food Waste Elimination Bin    

A food waste elimination bin is a passive system that converts all food waste into fertilizer using nature's creatures available in the environment.


This food waste elimination bin is designed to invite creatures from the surrounding environment into the system to convert food waste into fertilizer. It is a two-stage passive system that does not require external power source as well as effective micro-organisms.

Food waste is put into the bin through a specially designed door that allows food waste to drop into the bin and yet preventing nature's creatures in the bin from escaping.

The composting food waste attracts creatures within the surrounding environment into the system through a specially designed opening that allows the creatures to enter and trapping them inside.

Once inside, the nature’s creatures feed on the food waste converting it to fertilizer.

The two-stage system eliminates odour and increases the composting process.

Key benefits:
· No operating cost
· No effective micro-organisms needed
· High volume reduction ratio from food waste to fertilizer
· Zero food waste disposal
· No food waste collection
· Reduce council waste collection fee
· Eliminate up-stream waste processing system
· No land fill
· No greenhouse gases
· Can be incorporated into building design.
· Reduce burden on sewage system from household using in-sink disposer
· No maintenance needed
· Environmental friendly
· Low cost
· Can be used in remote location like highway resting area or recreation park

Primary Application of the Technology

Waste Companies, Environmental Departments, Town Councils, Households, Plastic bin manufacturers, Parks and recreation departments, Eco park operators, Building developers

The Problem Solved by the Technology

Elimination greenhouse gases from landfills, garbage trucks and waste processing plants. Eliminates biodegradable waste collection from households.
