Re-Nuble Offers Odorless (!!) Organic Waste Recycling

Organic waste recycling can be positive — Re-Nuble has what it’s calling a net-positive closed-loop system to get useful stuff out of organic waste. […]

 
Most people hear the word “recycle” and think of paper, plastic, or aluminum. What they don’t always consider is organic waste recycling.

Re-Nuble Organic Waste RecyclingOrganic waste recycling doesn’t always mean something like “compost heap” or “feed the chickens” (and I have personal experience with both of these, neither of which are pleasant). The people over at Re-Nuble have what they’re calling a net-positive closed-loop system to get useful stuff out of organic waste.

Organic Waste Recycling For Green Energy And Fertilizer

The system Re-Nuble picks up organic waste from farmers, supermarkets, and restaurants and then tosses it into a closed compartment with the proper micro-organisms, at which point everyone is happy — the closed compartment means people in the vicinity can’t smell the process, the micro-organisms are having a blast, and Re-Nuble gets electricity and organic fertilizer to sell! It’s a pretty efficient system.

The ‘minor’ matter of reduced fossil fuel use — both for transportation of said fertilizer (since odorless means the facility can be located closer to its customers) and in the fertilizer itself (because organic) — is also a win.

The other side-effect of an organic waste recycling system like Re-Nuble’s means that less of that organic waste is reaching landfills — which in turn means that the landfill itself not only doesn’t smell as horrific, but it also produces less methane as a result of rotting formerly-edibles. (Although, personally, I’m happiest about the “less stuff in landfills” part of that.)

Re-Nuble is currently holding a fundraiser to launch its system — head on over, take a loo, and chip in!
