Ever wondered what happens to things you throw “away”, be it a banana peel, an expired can of beans, yesterday’s newspapers, or an old piece of furniture?

Garbage is not waste, it is simply raw materials in the wrong place!


And what if someone asks you to picture where greenhouse gases come from, images of smoggy traffic jams or billowing smokestacks are likely to spring to mind. But your dinner? Probably not so much!

Food waste should be a relatively small issue, right? Except that we needlessly waste food on such a massive scale that it adds up to a global problem.


Did you know that around 70% of waste is composed of food items?


According to a recent study done by the University of California, “around 7 percent of greenhouse gas emissions come from food waste worldwide. To put that in perspective; if all the world’s food waste came together and formed a country, it would be the third-largest emitter of greenhouse gases, behind China and the US.” 


Market and sell Oklin Composting machines to households and large-scale institutions; and encourage businesses and households to start producing and using organic compost for their green spaces.



Instill the recycling culture within the Jordanian society, provide effective and sustainable waste management solutions, and ultimately promote sustainable development of the recycling industry.


  1. Total municipal waste generated in Jordan per year is: 2,077,215,000 kg
  2. Total municipal waste generated in Amman per day is 3,000,000 kg
  3. 1,454,050,000 kg of food (some of which is perfectly edible) is being thrown away every single year
  4. What happens to all that waste? 48% ends up in landfills and the other 45% is openly dumped
  5. Only 7% of total waste is recycled

There’s waste before food even leaves a farm

  1. 40% of fruits and vegetables are disposed at farms for having the ‘wrong shape’, being slightly damaged, etc.
  2. 20% is disposed at grocery stores (damaged or unsold)
  3. 30% is disposed at households

Environmental Impact of Poor Waste Management Practices:

Soil contamination

Water surface pollution

Underground water contamination

Air pollution

Generation of Methane gas which is explosive and highly inflammable and can cause intoxication if inhaled

Global warming

What Can Be Done?

Composting is the way to go!

What is Composting?

Composting is the process of turning food waste and other organic materials into nutrient-rich organic compost.

In-Vessel Composting

 offers a new technology of composting that allows for an automated and odorless process. Utilizing microbes and heat, food waste is transformed to nutrient-rich compost in only 24 hours.

In-Vessel Composting is the greenest thing to do because it is:

  • Convenient

  • A fully-automated process, utilizing heat and self-generating microbes

  • Energy-efficient

  • Fastest method available. Food waste and other organic material can be turned into organic compost within 24 hours

  • Completely odorless

  • Requires no connection to a water source or sewer hookup. All you need is a power connection. Plug in and go!  

Why Compost?

Compost works wonders on your soil and plants. It significantly improves soil structure (its physical, chemical and biological makeup), amplifies soil fertility, conditions and rehabilitates the soil, enhances soil’s PH level, augments nutrient content in the soil and preserves these nutrients from leaching out hence making them more available for plants to benefit from.


Compost will also:

  • Increase organic carbon in the soil

  • Improve aeration and water infiltration

  • Increase nutrient uptake by plant roots

  • Provide micro-organisms vital for soil fertility

  • Enhance soil resilience against disease and during extreme conditions

  • Help in keeping soil temperature constant; cooler in summer and warmer at night

Who can use a composting machine?






Canteen / Cafeterias

Shopping Centres

Food Processing Sites

So your waste can help you start your own organic garden

The resulting compost is so rich in essential nutrients that it’s great for growing organic fruits and vegetables, conditioning, rehabilitating and fertilizing your soil. It can be used in gardens, big or small, for pots inside the house or in the balcony, or even sold to nurseries and organic farms.


What better way to managing your waste and turning it into a valuable resource, and doing your part in saving the environment?
