Food waste is the largest proportion of combustible waste, but due to the high water content of food waste, the calorific value of waste incineration is low and more greenhouse gases are generated. With this new device, the Worm House, worms can not only eat food waste, but their feces can also fertilize the soil in the device, allowing our vegetables to grow better.
