Waste sorting and analysis
Recycling organic waste (biowaste)
We chose to figure it all out ourselves, so we spent over 6 months collecting, sorting and then analysing the waste. Why we do it ourselves? Because we think this is the right approach for the planet. We have compiled a lot of honest information which we are now ready to share with you.
Biowaste currently accounts for more than 50% of total waste*, which is the reason for our company to actively explore this category of waste. The main methods of dealing with organic waste are composting and larval cultivation. For larvae, organic waste is a substrate for food and by feeding on biowaste, larvae are actively gaining weight in the first weeks, which results in high quality protein and fats.
*All data was obtained by sorting and analysing the waste at the company's own sorting centre.
