Sustainability

Banana and orange peel can be made into hydrogen and biochar in the blink of an eye.

Now, thanks to an Irish startup’s innovation, organic food waste can be turned into biogas and liquid fertiliser in backyards or on company grounds. Come rain or shine.

Waste is mixed with water and put through the system’s macerator. The resulting pulp is then pumped at regular intervals into a fermenting ‘egg’.

A natural process of anaerobic digestion generates biogas, which is filtered and captured in a gas bag. The liquid fertiliser is a welcome by-product.

The system is controlled and monitored by app, and, with the right pump, the gas can be used immediately.

Cooked too much? Sharing is caring.
