ZERA Food Recycler turns food scraps into fertilizer within 24 hours.

With the Zera Recycler, the push of a button converts household food waste into homemade fertilizer.

Designed by WLabs, an innovation incubator for international home appliance company, Whirlpool, the Zera Food Recycler reduces food waste by over two-thirds its original volume through a fully automated process. The result is ready-to-use fertilizer within 24 hours that you can spread on your lawn, outdoor plants, and garden. The device can convert 95% of a typical family’s food waste into ready-to-use, homemade fertilizer and can be controlled from anywhere with the Zera app.

To break down one week’s worth of food into fertilizer, the zera food recycler uses a combination of oxygen, moisture, heat and mixing to expedite the decomposition process.

Zera Food Recycler enables households to realize the rewards of doing their part to help reduce landfill waste. It’s never been easier to leave a greener legacy, by taking today’s food waste and recycling it into homemade fertilizer, with the device that fits seamlessly into your home and lifestyle.
