Turning food waste into compost overnight.. Pela Lomi

Techstination feature for Monday, July 26, 2021

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.      Turning food waste in the kitchen into compost, overnight.   That’s the promise from a company called Pela…which has developed a countertop electronic composter called Lomi.    Pela has been around for years…making things like environmentally friendly phone cases.   But the Lomi puts the company in a whole new category.   CEO Matt Bertulli..

“Like you turn it on when you turn on your dishwasher…it fits in the same family rhythm, right?  You put your food scraps in…any kind of food waste… and then it’s got one button on the front of the button…it starts the cycle.  And then the next day when you go to open Lomi, Lomi has turned all of that food waste into dirt.”

No mess, no smell.   It’s due to arrive later this year for about three hundred dollars. There are filters and additives to order as well.  You can pre-order at
