Igor’s vision is to convert the food waste created by the built environment into renewable nutrients in situ to sell for soil stock enrichment.
To date, food waste has only been processed into biogas at high temperatures, or sent to landfill, making nutrient recycling industrially unviable. Simply relying on the food waste management status quo, rather than shifting fundamentally to a new paradigm, is a doomed strategy. Traditional composting or equivalent systems are less desirable option to mitigate food waste recycling, excessive use of plastic bags, odours, vermin, flies and wild life (birds, foxes, insects) are off-putting and unhygienic.
Unlike conventional schemes, Igor’s focus is to  take a more active role looking at affordable solutions that are more environmentally sustainable.
