Loop / Food waste recycling


1.3 billion tonnes of food is wasted globally each year and the households stand for the biggest amount. Today, two-thirds of our food waste goes into the garbage bin and the majority of people do not recycle their food waste today because of comfortable reasons. Loop is a combined kitchen sink and food waste collector. With its unique technique of separating “wet” from “dry” and workflow optimized design features, it distinguish from existing solutions and turns recycling into a seamless end-to-end experience and a sustainable choice. With the end goal to take advantage of the energy and nutrients in the food waste and create a closed loop.
