Food Security Project

This Project Proposal recommends win/win solutions for Indonesian issues of national importance by recycling and composting the organic waste that has the potential to:

  1. Drastically reduces waste volume by recycling 90% of the waste
    Incinerators are no alternative due to high risks and a negative energy balance
  2. Restores depleted soil and thus assists food security
    50% of Indonesia’s agricultural land is depleted and compost is needed to restore it
  3. Reduces greenhouse gasses
    Organic waste generates 11 % of Indonesia’s greenhouse gasses

To achieve these goals, equal opportunities must be created: Compost must get same subsidies as overused chemical fertilizers (or no subsidies for both).
