Why fermentaya?

We all are producing organic waste at home.

How do you dispose your organic waste? What are you doing with it?

30% of our household waste is organic matter and about 70% of the population is not collecting it separately, sometimes only partly – hence we loose a valuable organic matter for the production of humus.

If we dispose our organic waste into our household bin it goes into landfilling or incineration, which means it is burned and the CO2 will be released into the atmosphere.

This is causing a significant CO2 impact.

On average we produce around 100kg organic waste per year/per person in the Western European countries)

If we collect the organic waste of 36.000 households, we would amass 6.000 tons organic kitchen waste and would save: 642,000 tons CO2-equivalent per year
