DEVELOPING THE STANDARD
By 2023 all EU countries must take care of and collect food waste. This is a small revolution in our industry since it affects how we develop kitchen interiors and storage solutions.
HERO FOOD WASTE BIN
IMA has been working together with different national associations in waste disposal, to try to come up with a solution that can be used all over Europe. And the result is our very own HERO.
A ventilated bin specialized in collecting food waste. Maybe not that impressing... but the great thing about HERO is that it can be used together with all the different types of bags that are stan- dard in communities throughout Europe. And its design makes it possible to insert in a majority of kitchen drawers and cabinets.
Ventilation keeps the bag dry
The ventilated bin makes sure there is no smell coming from the food waste. The decomposition will not start as long as the bag is kept fully ventilated. As a result the bag will be kept dry.
THE WORLD NEEDS A STANDARD
Every community in every country has its own set of bags to contain the food waste. That's why we developed HERO to go with all these types of bags.
A FLEXIBLE SOLUTION
A divider can be used to separate the food waste bin into two spaces. Here you can see how HERO goes together with a smaller bag thanks to the divider.
