Real compost in only 48 hours — this is how KALEA combines nature and high-tech

Smarter in 3 minutes? Learn about our KALEA technology at turbo speed and understand how our automatic kitchen composter creates real compost from organic waste in such a short time.

You might ask yourself, "Real compost in only 48 hours? How is that possible?" That's what we asked ourselves, too. About two years ago, we started to develop KALEA with the idea of combining nature and high-tech. This is the essence of KALEA and is part of our unique technology. In three steps, KALEA transforms your organic waste into nutrient-rich compost in just 48 hours. Plus, it’s clean, odorless, and super easy to handle. These are the three steps of our unique KALEA technology:

Step 1: Shredding & drying your kitchen waste

You can fill KALEA with leftovers at any time since KALEA's robust shredding mechanism processes them automatically. The grinder also conquers small bones and nutshells. The subsequent drying process "pauses" the decomposition of microorganisms found in food leftovers so they can be stored inside KALEA without odors almost indefinitely.

Once you have collected enough waste, KALEA works its magic and turns it into real compost.

Step 2: Remineralization & composting

In our composting chamber, we "reawaken” the microorganisms. KALEA's intelligent sensors measure and control the values for temperature, pH, humidity, oxygen quantity, and surface in such a way that the microorganisms are provided with optimal metabolic conditions. In this feel-good atmosphere, they break down the components commonly present in food leftovers (sugar, starch, proteins, and fats) at top speed. Nobody else but us can do this.

Step 3: Enjoying fresh compost

At the end of the process, the organic waste is transformed into valuable humic substances and inorganic minerals — the essence of a genuine, high-quality compost. You simply remove it and give something really good directly to your plants!

With KALEA, you can always use peat-free soil because our compost aerates the soil and provides it with sufficient nutrients. The mixing ratio is 1:10, with 1 part KALEA compost and 10 parts peat-free potting soil.

An electric composter for your kitchen - home composting made convenient with KALEA 

Are you looking for a sustainable and convenient way for food recycling? Such as a mini-compost pile for your home, but without the smell, flies and mess? KALEA has developed an electric kitchen composter, which is the first indoor composter of its kind and suits all of your food composting needs.  


Interested in making compost at home? KALEA turns your organic waste into fresh compost automatically, hygienically, safely, and without odour in just 48 hours. 


An electric composter in the kitchen saves you from having to walk up and down stairs, and even without your own garden or balcony you can make something useful out of your organic waste. Our unique composting system combines nature with high tech, and allows you to compost at home hassle free. 


Our KALEA kitchen composter can process more than just fruits and vegetables. You can also put nutshells, fish, small bones, dairy products and cooked food in the organic composter.

With an automatic composter bin you can make something truly useful for your plants! 


The nutrient-rich compost produced from organic waste in our electric composter contains all the essential nutrients and minerals that plants need to grow. Simply mix the compost in a ratio of 1 to 10 with fresh, peat-free soil. You can use it for your indoor plants or outside in the garden. The best thing? The compost produced from our automatic composter can even be stored for up to two years.
