The ever-increasing population and urbanisation of India has made waste management a grave concern. Of the 62 million tonnes of waste generated every year in India, 40-50% is organic, of which only 22% is processed. At this rate, by the year 2047, India will require 1400 square kilometres of landfill space.
As we turn food into waste, it is on us to turn food waste into a resource. Introducing the Kirloskar iLAND, a fully automated organic waste composter. Powered by biotechnology and intelligent engineering, the Kirloskar iLAND reduces the volume of organic food waste by recycling it into a nutrient-rich soil supplement. The soil supplement can then be used for landscaping and gardening, completing the ecological loop of garbage to garden.
