Once cleaner than now, Planet Earth has long been suffering from man-made pollutants from oil to toxic substances under the sea, over the land and in the atmosphere. 
Pollution reminds us of industrial mostly but we might be surprised if we know that food waste from home and commercial is no less a worry than industrial. 
Backed up by environment-driven governments, environment-driven companies are working on finding better solutions to reduce food waste. Companies in South Korea in particular boast excellent solutions in wasted food processing technique and Conpotech is the one that introduced the nation’s first RFID food disposer.

Nation’s First RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) Food Disposer 

If you happen to visit apartment blocks in South Korea, you might notice RFID food disposers lined up on communal areas. The system weighs the weight of the food you dump, charges you on ‘pay as you dump’ and sends the information to the central system to be made into data. Around 110,000 units are estimated to be installed nationwide. 
Conpotech is a South Korean food waste solutions company that developed nation’s first RFID food disposer. The company has collaborated with the Ministry of Environment and local governments since 2007 to supply and install this environmentallyfriendly disposers from which the company is now sharing 30% of its market as of 2022.
