The purpose of this research is to study the benefits of compost (to produce electricity) and its effects to utilize it for the growth of fresh and healthy vegetables. Now… If we could capture that heat, it can be used for multiple purposes and used efficiently. The waste that comes from each flat can be categorized into two-wet and dry. The wet wastes can be fully utilized for this purpose.
This study shall include the wet wastes from fifteen flats and the waste from the school canteen. Most of Kuwait’s soil is 85% sand and 15% silt. It is good for construction but bad for agriculture as the Organic content of Kuwaiti soil is less than1% which is well below the world’s average. As we have poor soil, we can amend it with lots of organic matter from a compost. Living in Kuwait, where agriculture is not a huge industry and the majority of your food is imported and may not be devoid of pesticides and insecticides, we were concerned about how to incorporate some of our new and evolving belief systems regarding the food that we eat. A big part of organic gardening is using compost, and making your own is the best thing to do, homemade compost recycles garden and kitchen scraps into beautiful dark fertilizer, which keeps plants happy all seasons.
The electricity generated from the compost could provide round the clock power to the rural areas in India and enhance rural electrification in villages like Dandepalli
