This Awesome New Food Recycler Will Transform Your Food Scraps Into Fertilizer

Food waste doesn’t have to go to waste any longer thanks to the Zera Food Recycler. It serves as an automated composter that can turn your food scraps into fresh fertilizer in 24 hours.

Typically, the composting process takes weeks or even months to turn microorganisms into rich fertilizer, or “black gold.” The great thing is that Zera is that it’s also hands-free.

While you typically have to mix a pile of microorganisms for decomposition regularly, Zera does this by heating up your food scraps while churning your mixture with an additive derived from coconut fibers and baking soda which speeds up this process.

Zera was invented my Whirlpool’s WLabs and launched at CES this year, however, production for the final design is scheduled for March 2017.
