Turn your food waste into compost in 24hrs
Welcome to the story of JORGJI: our mission is to help cities solve their food and garden organic (FOGO) waste problems with eco-regeneration systems.
Food waste is one of the major contributors to landfill.
JORGJI's goal is to turn food organic and garden organic (FOGO) waste streams into usable compost or animal feed supplement through
the use of in vessel or reactor based rapid composting units.
The Jorgji system can process up to 100 tonnes of organic waste (food scraps, garden cuttings, fish and chicken bones, dry paper etc) into 10 tonnes of usable compost or animal feed supplement within 48hours - 24 hours for quantities under 20 tonnes.
Day after day, 365 days a year.
Jorgji rapid composting units are odourless allowing co-location back of house to food courts and supermarkets, reduce organic waste stream volumes by over 90%, vastly reducing the volume of material, provide ready to use compost or pelletised animal feed supplement and small quantities of bio-oils suitable for further processing as fuel additives and small quantities of non-potable water suitable for gardens. Rapid composting units are electrically powered and smaller systems may qualify for
the Australian Taxation Office Instant Asset Write Off provision.
Where it can be demonstrated that an organic resource stream was previously sent to landfill, processing that same stream with a Jorgji system can qualify the entity for carbon credits. If the processed stream of compost is then used in place of petro-chemical fertilisers and carcinogenic pesticides, a second tranche of carbon credits can ensue.
Jorgji can also put you in touch with entities desirous of acquiring compost and carbon credits.
Jorgji systems are a dry system meaning large quantities of water are NOT required to complete the composting process.
A 2 tonne wet system or Liquid Food Composting (LFC) can require the same quantity of water
- 2000 litres per day - to complete a cycle.
An equivalent 2 tonne JORGJI system would use just 15 litres of water to process the same organic waste stream.
In Asia, on average 6 plastic bags are used per a day. If a city has 350,000 households, by using the JORGJI bin we can save up to 2.1 million plastic bags per a day, which equals 766.5 million plastic bags per year. All this in just one city!
Plastic bags mixed with food waste and other non-biodegradable materials cause disastrous damage to our environment. The complicated mix of materials presents a challenge for current waste management strategies and generally leads to some sort of air, soil or even oceanic contamination. Many large cities are so condensed that they no longer have space for land fill, further increasing air pollution by burning rubbish.
The time to act is now and we need your help. The goal for JORGJI is to centralise food waste composting and recycle organic waste so that it doesn’t end up in landfill. Using more JORGJI bins means less plastic bags are required and less rubbish is burned.
JORGJI has already been supported by the Macau Government and they have been brave enough to join us in the fight against pollution as a part of their Green Macau Policy.
Macau is a city with 650,000 residents and is a tourist hot spot with 30 million people visiting each year. With the support of local residents and Kiang Wu Hospital championing the use of the JORGJI bin, we know we can do our bit to reduce waste and pollution.
Making a difference with every purchase
As a part of the circular economy compost is provided to farmers to regenerate and improve the nutritional quality of the soil.
Be part of the solution and together we can regenerate 7 MILLION TONNES of food waste to landfill into high quality compost.
