Sepura Home Garbage Disposal System | 2019-2020

Project Description

Every year Americans landfill or incinerate around 50 million tons of potentially compostable waste - enough to fully load a line of 18-wheeler trucks from NYC to LA ten times. Composting food waste is an ideal alternative that would help conserve landfill space, prevent unnecessary emissions, protect water resources, and regenerate local soil.

Unfortunately, the idea of food composting turns off a lot of people due to the odors and fruit flies that result from countertop composting bins. To make composting food waste convenient and appealing to consumers, Sepura Home has transformed the conventional garbage disposal unit into an all-in-one home composting system.

Unlike a conventional garbage disposal that sends food waste right into the sewage system, Sepura uses a patented separating technology to divert food waste into a collection bin under your sink. This allows food waste to be easily composted and also prevents the build-up of odor and fruit flies that typically result from tabletop compost bins.

By making food composting a frictionless experience, Sepura is allowing people to shift their food consumption habits to make it easy for them to compost 100% of their food waste. This has the potential to have a huge impact by reducing the harmful emissions resulting from food waste penetrating the sewage system and reducing the amount of food waste that goes into landfills.
