Did you know that Indians waste as much food as the whole of United Kingdom consumes (CSR JOURNAL, 29th Aug, 2015). The irony is, while India is struggling hard to feed its population, a lot of food is getting wasted.
Wastage is just the beginning, what happens after that is more dreadful. Food waste when reaches the landfill, breaks down to release methane which is a green house gas and is 21 times more harmful than carbon dioxide. Methane is released due to lack of oxygen in the landfill, as well as, food waste being covered with more harmful garbage. At this time, bacteria act on the waste releasing poisonous components in the air. This is the air we breathe in.
Besides, India being a resource deficit country is running short of landfill sites. If we do not act now, soon we would have to find another planet to live in.
Planning your meals is the most effective way to control food wastage and to reduce the food bills. However, there is still a lot of organic waste for instance dried leaves, sticks etc. that is generated in the house/building/hotel/restaurant which needs to be recovered in some form. COMPOSTING is the best way to handle all the organic waste generated.
Compost is an important soil amendment made of decomposed plants and food waste. Adding compost to soil helps retain moisture and nutrients, providing soil the necessary microorganisms to make it fertile.
Machines like ENV-ACT are composting machines that run on Environ Accelerated composting technology that uses advanced fluid heating mechanism to form compost. They are fully automatic composting machines that coverts organic waste into compost within 24 hours.
Such machines are required to manage the waste in an efficient, economical and eco-friendly manner.
