Garbage Enzyme

Garbage Enzyme
Garbage Enzyme Activity Report 2016

School of Green Science and Engineering of KAGC was conducted an activity on Garbage Enzyme (GE) Production for all green students on 05th April 2015 at KAGC Chemical Laboratory. The event was held as the part of the activity for Waste Management Course. The entire green students were actively participated and learned to created useful products from garbage.
GE is nothing but a vinegar or alcohol derived from fermenting fresh kitchen waste such as veggie and fruit dregs (peels, cuttings and bits), sugar (brown sugar, jaggery or molasses sugar) and water. The enzyme is derived after one filters and removes the residue after 3 months. The key ingredient is molasses, which the bacteria and microorganisms present in the waste metabolize into alcohol. This is reduced in its final form to acetic acid or vinegar. Vinegar with its acidic properties is well known as an all-round non-toxic cleaner. The enzyme holding many benefits which includes;
  • Household cleansing solution
  • Keeping insects away
  • Purifying the air
  • As compost for plants and vegetables
  • As natural pesticide
  • Prevents blockage in drainpipes

It is also said that during the fermentation of Garbage Enzyme, ozone gas is released and in turn helps to slow down Global Warming and at the same time help to heal the environment. Targeting Youth, this activity empowers young adults to think outside the box in solving environmental issues such as sustainable waste management.
