ZERO WASTE / Products and Applications


Food waste is a growing problem. It is estimated that billions of tons of waste is generated over the world each year, but only a fraction of that amount will be recycled. One of the reasons is families feel difficult to reduce their kitchen waste. Zero WASTE is a multifunctional food waste recycling machine for future kitchen. It is a stand-alone appliance which can dispose food waste up to 20-30kg one time. Zero WASTE can reduce up to 90% of the food waste size, turn it into 99% dry powder, and separate oil from water. As a result, the waste oil can be recycled as biodiesel, and the waste water and powder can provide water and nutrients.
