The conversion of fruit & vegetable waste to a stable enzyme solution used for cleaning, fertilizing,...
Fruit and vegetable waste from kitchens (or gardens or farming?) are left to decompose/ferment in sugar water. The sugar acts as nutrient to fuel enzyme reactions.
I don't know any more about this than what I read on the web. It sounds almost too good to be true.
I am trying it out now and am thinking about distributing it.
More Info[edit | edit source]
Internal[edit | edit source]
searching this wiki for "enzyme" led me to:
- Fruit_waste_utilisation_(Practical_Action_Brief)#Enzymes - no useful info, but a mention
- Bioconversion_of_Organic_Residues_for_Rural_Communities - seems related but haven't found anything yet
External[edit | edit source]
- Enzyme DIY | Enzyme S.O.S. - basic recipe for creation of enzyme, seem to be the primary source on the web
- Enzyme Cleaner Recipe - ecokaren - accelerating the process using yeast.
Scientific Verification[edit | edit source]
I cannot yet see any scientific studies though sources suggest that the research is all science based (see #External Info above).
- partner with chemistry department at university to analyze enzyme
Business Idea[edit | edit source]
- collect suitable waste
- potential income
- process waste into enzyme
- distribute/sell enzyme
- bring your own container
- provide bulk/wholesale option
- package with instructions of how to do it yourself (i.e. how to replicate this)
- sort of open source business
Educational Projects[edit | edit source]
- run science experiment at schools
