Kitchen Cow, 2019


Food waste produced in a kitchen is chopped up and converted into biogas in a fermenter – the glass ‘stomach’ of the Kitchen-Cow. An air cushion serves as the storage tank. Three kilograms of organic waste can power a strong gas burner for about one hour. This speculative design project by EOOS explores how we can generate energy for cooking from food waste. All vegetable and animal waste in the household can be utilised in this way.
