‘lomi speeds up the breakdown of organic waste into smaller fragments – similar to how earthworms break down and mix plant tissue into soil, except loom does it without the smell and mess,’ said daanvir, materials scientist pela. ‘fragmented waste provides more surface area for microbes to accelerate the composting process. the end result is a natural source of soil nutrients that increase the organic content of soil, helping boost plant growth and soil enrichment.’

in order to work, lomi contains temperature and humidity sensors that optimize the microbial environment that is essential for great compost. it first begins by compacting the contents, where the sensors break down the food scraps without losing any vital microorganisms and leads to mass and volume reduction all while a continuous airflow and a heavy-duty grinder turn the compost. wondering what can go in the lomi? vegetables, fruits, animal products, foods and yard waste as well as objects made with bioplastics such as compostable cutlery, coffee cups, packaging, and single-use plates. finally, lomi knows that this process might be smelly. to counteract it, it uses charcoal filters to trap and eliminate any odors produced in the composting process.

 

aiming to be in every home in the very near future, lomi is a revolutionary technology that wants to reduce every household’s waste by up to 50%.
