Comments Off on The First CityPod Composter Has Been Installed in a Canadian University

The University of British Columbia has a new, eco-friendly addition: a 15-foot stainless steel in-vessel composter called the CityPod . Recently installed in the university’s new recycling room, the composter takes care of all food waste and compostable tableware from the school’s catering and food service operations. Food waste from all around the building is collected in 35-gallon bins lined with compostable bags, and those are shredded with a Bokashicycle Pulveriser before being tossed into the composter, where it’ll be processed in a short 6 weeks. Compost taken from the CityPod will be used to nourish the herbs and crops growing in the UBC rooftop garden . + Vertal + City Pod Images via the City Pod Facebook page Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Read the rest of The First CityPod Composter Has Been Installed in a Canadian University Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: city pod , city pod composter , CityPod , CityPod Composter , compost , compost machine , compostable , composter , composting , composting machine , food waste , recycling , rooftop garden , ubc , University of British Columbia , vertal

South Africa is a historically coal-hungry nation, producing around 225 million tonnes of the stuff each year. But just two years ago, government leaders pledged to invest an incredible $5.4 billion in renewable energy , and the products of that investment are taking shape. The Jasper PV Project in Kimberly, South Africa, became fully operational in October, and produces enough power to serve an impressive 80,000 homes. It’s now the largest solar power plant in Africa. The better news? It’s soon to be eclipsed by an even bigger facility nearby.
