The Urban Composter is an installation for processing vegetable, fruit and garden (VFG) waste in an urban environment. The user can simply deposit his VFG waste in the Urban Composter and the processing will begin immediately.
The Urban Composter is installed at underground recycling stations, a trend that is rising in Europe. The composting process of the Urban Composter is promising for implementation in an urban environment, of course after further testing.
The Urban Composter scores well with regard to selected materials and manufacturing process:
- Stainless steel is corrosion-resistant and easy to recycle;
- The amount of material is reduced to a minimum by means of an extensive calculation of forces;
- Application of standard components that can be replaced easily and quickly on site.
