Organic Waste Converter


Composting is the decomposition of organic waste by microorganisms under controlled conditions. Organic waste, which forms a significant part of municipal solid waste, has caused increased environmental concerns. It is estimated that around 50 percent of it can be composted, instead most of it is used for landfill or incinerated.
By composting organic waste, we can preserve resources and produce a valuable by-product that can be used as manure. The existing compost bins have few challenges which are difficult to handle such as messy and smelly compost, time-consuming process (30-45 days), prone to insects, rodents and hard to clean. In addition, some of them release greenhouse gases. Cost issues are there with few automatic and high-end compost bins.
This project aims at designing an organic waste converter, which is easy to use, ergonomic in nature and visually appealing. Designed organic waste converter consists of a separate chamber for blade cutter assembly (runs with help of an AC motor) and a compressing unit which runs on rechargeable 12V DC battery. The billets are formed in cubicle shapes, billets are used for the purpose of composting this helps in reducing the volume of the organic waste at source itself. Simple mechanism allows the user to maintain cleanliness. Users appreciated the product for its aesthetics, easy mechanism, easy handling, easy maintenance etc.
