CIRCULAR ECONOMY AND N.O. WA.S.T.E. SYSTEM:
HOW TO GENERATE INCOME FROM HOUSEHOLD WASTE
IRSSAT – after patenting its waste-eating robot – has been invited as guest at European Commission “Green Week”.
Brussels – From today the small robot able to transform household waste into energy is operative in the European capital: N.O. W.A.S.T.E. 1 system – created by IRSSAT 2 - is arrived at European Commission “Green Week”. It is the first step to approach the economic and institutional context of northern Europe, in order to apply the circular economy principles.
From bio-waste to compost production and biogas enhance: here is the cycle of our innovative kitchen appliance.
The main goal is to demonstrate that organic waste can become high-quality compost and more quickly than using traditional processes. Our project proposes a new treatment at source by households thank to the use of the NOWASTE prototype, an anaerobic kitchen composter which obtained the patent in 2013. This treatment can drastically reduce MSW collection and transportation costs, leading great economic and environmental benefits. Experimentation activities are involving 1,000 Sicilian families in three different Municipalities.
Come visit us at the Green Week - Stand #43
Visit of Gaggi, Castelmola and Melilli 's students to the NoWaste laboratories, where are assembled the Nowaste machine prototypes.
"We worked in the awareness that cutting out the landfills, life will smile us.
The waste isn't something to be ridded but something that can become a resource.
Waste is a resource to be transformed and reused."
EWWR - European Week for Waste Reduction
This is the clear message from Gaggi, Castelmola and Melilli's students:
"Love Mother Earth as yourself"
To understand the working system and the advantages using the NOWASTE home machine, we reproduced the daily manage for a meal preparation, including the inevitable waste production.
It’s possible, in fact, to put into the NOWASTE prototype machine, any type of alimentary waste, including peel potatoes and vegetables.
The NOWASTE machine it was designed and realized good to manage a lot of kitchen waste, including hard cheeses and chicken bones.
Waste that at the end of any meals, would be put into the NOWASTE machine, only adding some enzymes.
This waste management presents three immediate benefits: cut down the organic fraction of waste, and dilate the contribution until once on fifteen days, cutting down the transport costs.
The final target it’s to produce high quality compost in shortest times.
Our N.O.WA.S.T.E. anaerobic kitchen composter has obtained the patent in November 2013.
