Food storage and waste recycling kitchen design

The eco friendly kitchen Ekokook, designed by Le Faltazi Lab consists of three micro-plants. The first micro-plant recycles solid waste. Solid wastes with no smell are collected and recycled. Glass, paper, plastic, metal, and miscellaneous waste is placed in a special bin and smashed down to minimize its volume. All these actions, – to break glass, compress metal cans and plastic water bottles or containers are activated by hand with a steel ball handle. A manual shredder-crusher machine shreds paper before turning it into briquettes.

The second micro-plant clean and recycle water. It collects, analyze and recycle liquids. The first double sink is designed for retention. The second sink collects water that is filtered of any grease scum in two pitchers. The water from pitchers can be used for watering household plants and cleaning.

The third micro-plant deals with all organic waste. It has a garbage bin, which is the earth worm composer. It uses real earthworms to break down organic wastes. Organic wastes, like peels, scrapings, left-overs, all food waste go to the container with the worms. The drum rotates and gradually in three months  the waste is maturing into lumbri compost. Liquid effluent drains into two special containers and, diluted one part effluent to ten parts water, becomes perfect food for indoor and outdoor plants.
