Create customer awareness for a world's first innovation.

Current State: Collecting organic kitchen garbage is nowadays a challenge due to its missing convenience. Fruit flies, foul odors and garbage juice are mainly the reason why people do not adhere more properly in separating bio waste. Consequently more than 50% of rotting food scraps are disposed via domestic waste channel. This leads to CO2 emission and requires energy for incineration. Finally biogas production sites could benefit of this valuable resource. We believe this needs to be changed.
