Abstract

The issues of waste management have been discussed around the globe to overcome the problem of high waste generated by people every day. This has been worsening with the area of dumping load becomes limited as the time goes by. This study intended to encourage a self-degradation habit since wastes could be regenerated as renewable products using a better waste management system. Going green means embracing a way of life that helps preserve the environment by reducing, reusing, and recycling items. Going green concept is learning and practicing an environmentally mindful lifestyle that contributes towards protecting the environment and preservation and conservation of the natural resources, habitats, and biodiversity. Using a Biobin also a way of going green, the aim of going green or using Biobin is to reduce pollution and reduce resources consumption and eliminate wastes. Biobin is developed to create a user-friendly bin for degradable wastes storage system. The Biobin is built with tank which fixes with components to enhance the digestion process. This Biobin functions to store the wastes, therefore when digestion reaction happens in the Biobin, the renewable of gas, solid and liquid will be produced. Pre-treatment, crushing, filtration and anaerobic digestion are processes cycle in the Biobin will be analysed. Both liquid and solid products as well as gas produced from the bio bin will be further evaluated for other beneficial usage such as fertilizer and short heating purposes. The sample of biobin has been introduced in this study to promote self waste management at every home. The findings of this study could contribute further recommendations for authorities to focus on enhancing household planning skills and routines when it comes to the food preparation.
