The idea is too good and is the need in developing countries especially in areas there is no electricity. It's better to prevent wastage before we think of increasing the production. I think this can be extended to preserve other perishable vegetable and fruits at much large scale till the produce is ready for delivery to large center companies with better storage capabilities. In fact this can be extendined to common cold storage for few families to prevent the damage to the leftover food items in such villages instead of individual storage. This can save their time money and prevent the wastage also.
The idea is very nice and helpful to the society. My main concern is to stop organic waste at the level of it produce ie home, hotels, animal farms as much as possible. To collect from the landfill areas is itself a time consuming and and need money and manpower. Why not educate the people to segregate the organic from the nonorganic and give some incentive to do this and deliver all this to the collecting system. One more thing everyone loves to have small kitchen garden and that household organic waste can be used in that in the form of a organic fertiliser. I have a rough idea how this organic waste can be used at home provided a person is willing to use it.
