An alliance between nature
& smart technology
Compost in 48 hours!
This is how nature and tech work together
Natural components of every food are microorganisms. Such as bacteria and fungi.
They decompose the waste – and we use their superpowers in a smart new way.
Speed it up! The inside of KALEA is equipped with sensors and an intelligent control system, which accelerates the required metabolism needed. A combination of the perfect temperature, humidity, and aeration turn your food waste into a land of milk and honey for microorganisms. The result? KALEA is able to substantially reduce the composting time from several weeks to only 48 hours.
Clean, convenient, and safe: The automatic grinding, mixing, and transfer of biomass ensure that you have nothing to take care of – except your excitement about fresh compost.
KALEA combines smart design with high-quality components
The thing about composting
STEP 1: REMINERALIZATION
Your kitchen waste is a bit like a fresh and full shopping bag. In order for your plants to use the nutrients, the "bag" must first be unpacked. This unpacking is called remineralization.
During the remineralization process, organic molecules are converted into inorganic minerals. This conversion is mainly done by omnipresent microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi, which are a natural part of our food.
STEP 2: COMPOSTING
During composting, the sugars, starch, proteins, fats, and at a later stage, cellulose is present in the waste that is broken down.
The compost quality can be influenced by providing optimal metabolic conditions for the microorganisms over a certain period of time. These conditions include temperature, pH value, moisture, amount of oxygen, and surface area. The better the conditions are met, the faster high-quality-compost is achieved.

For your plants and for planet Earth
Biowaste in landfills significantly damages our climate
Did you know that incorrectly disposed biowaste is more dangerous for the climate than CO2?
When organic waste is dumped in a landfill, it undergoes anaerobic decomposition (because of the lack of oxygen) and generates methane gas. Methane gas is a potent greenhouse gas – about 28 times more powerful than carbon dioxide at warming the Earth, on a 100-year timescale, and more than 80 times more powerful over 20 years.
Worldwide organic waste accounts for about 50% of the total amount of waste. Burying organic waste in landfills is a significant problem and it’s not just because of the resources we lose.
This is one of the reasons why we wanted to bring a change to your daily waste game. Make an eco-friendly difference with KALEA.
