iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2021

The incineration of wet garbage not only contributes to the greenhouse effect, but is also a waste of a precious resource that is rich in nutrients. Mealworms break down plastics harmlessly and will not transmit infectious diseases to mammals. The structure and shape of the composter are deduced and designed according to the recycling process. The insects in the insect box and the insect excrement recovered from the bottom layer can be reused as plant compost. This device makes the process of recycling wet garbage more sustainable.

It's a great idea to use mealworms to recycle plastics. Some questions remain about the speed and the number of worms needed to eat a certain quantity of plastic.
