One of the technologies used by his company is a composter with specially cultivated bacteria which serve for quick decomposition of food waste. Within a single day, they can decrease the volume by up to 90 percent.

JRK Waste Management also compares the contents of waste containers before and after the beginning of household composting.

Currently, the company cooperates with more than 400 municipalities and towns, for which it prepares complex solutions to prevent waste through household composting, as well as by increasing the rate of separation with innovative technologies.
