The research in this paper aims to producing a home version machine that
can dry and make biological waste into compact pellets. This product is
made primarily for those who want to improve the environment and reduce
the energy consuming process of separating the biological leftovers from
other waste in the large processing plants and save money due to reduced
pickups of waste. Since there is no commercially available product that
does what we want to achieve we had to start from the beginning with both
the design and the mechanical aspects. The result is a machine, that fits in
our homes, and in an easy and inexpensive way reduces the amount of
biological waste that needs to be collected by the public waste
transportation system. This is done without reducing any of the energy in
the waste and it can still be used to compost or by large-scale plants that use
the waste to make electricity. The last aspect of drying the waste is that it
stops bacteria growth; hence there will be no smell or decomposing.
