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.

In 1980, Peter Fend, Coleen Fitzgibbon, Jenny Holzer, Peter Nadin, Richard Prince and Robin Winters founded the ‘Ocean Earth Construction and Development Corporation’ (OECD), generally known as ‘Ocean Earth’. Artists, architects and scientists collaborate in an interdisciplinary approach, with interests that include carbon-free energy production (such as solar and wind energy, energy from ocean circulation, conversion of organic waste, hydrogen) and mariculture facilities for algae production.
