Promotion of waste treatment culture and usage of biological fertilizers.
The project provides 150 devices (vermicomposter) for food waste treatment and training on their use of up to 300 persons.
Vermicomposter is an enclosed unit accommodating the soil and earthworms eating food waste and turning them into fertilizer – biohumus. Produced fertilizers can be used at one’s garden plot or sold to interested organizations (horticultural societies, greenhouses, individuals, etc.).
Before the receipt of the Fund’s financing, the students won a grant from NU Green Campus. As a part of the grant, prototypes for vermicomposting with earthworms were created. The prototypes were tested by five experts of faculty staff from Nazarbayev University. Currently, based on their recommendations, the models are being refined under the Fund’s grant.
