Project name: Utilization of Perionyx Excavatus to reduce urban organic waste

To purpose to reduce organic waste by Perionyx excavates, we tested experiment with fruit and vegetable I with Perionyx excavates in our house.

Because with this special kind of worm start with food chain in nature, the Perionyx excavates could decompose cow manure – which produces Methane (CH4) (one of the most harmful greenhouse gases that cause bad effect on the ozone layer) into organic fertilizer. And with this idea I would like to talk about raising Perionyx excavates (worms) in small households, helping to reduce organic waste and developing the urban green agriculture. Compost from wicker worms will also provide nutrition to plants.
