Technology has made its way into every aspect of our daily lives, but nobody really pays attention to how we treat food scraps at home. Many households have no solution to dispose of food scraps conveniently, clean, and sustainable. This is also a global problem since organic waste accounts for up to 50% of the overall waste volume.
Kalea unites the natural composting process with smart technology to transform organic waste into nutrition-rich compost. Three simple steps and 48 hours is all it takes for your organic waste to turn into real, nourishing compost.
Kalea is designed to handle a typical four-person family’s weekly organic waste volume (appx. 2 cycles of 10 liters). The robust shredding system processes and dries almost everything, even nutshells, and small bones. As a nice side effect, this leads to a volume reduction of 85%. When enough material accumulates, Kalea automatically processes it to the composting chamber. No odors or fruit flies.
A perfect combination of temperature, humidity, and aeration wakes up the natural microorganisms inside the organic material and turns it into a land of milk and honey that accelerates the microorganisms’ metabolism. Kalea substantially reduces composting time from several months to just 48 hours.
Your plants will love it since only compost contains such a full spectrum of essential plant nutrients. And if you don’t need all your compost at once, no worries, you can store it for up to two years in a sealable container, protected from sun and humidity.
