As time goes by, the problem of food waste is growing. So people made food waste disposal machines, but they couldn't solve environmental problems. Recently, a technology that can convert food waste into eco-friendly renewable energy has been developed, and it is designed to imagine what the food waste disposal machine that introduces this technology will look like at home in the future. Inspired by the form of a kimchi refrigerator or washing machine, I thought I should make the most of air circulation, so I thought of it as a veranda or outdoor installation, which made it easy to dispose of food waste in the form of a cube in the product. The cube made in this way is considered a system that receives a payback when submitted to a government office or bank.
