Malaysian state converts Ramadan food waste into fertiliser

April 08, 2024

After breaking their Ramadan fast outside a mosque in Malaysia, people throw their leftovers into a machine that converts the food scraps into organic fertiliser for crops. "This has had a significant impact on us, as people are becoming more aware of environmental conservation, especially in terms of food waste reduction." Food scraps are thrown into the machine where they are slowly mixed with rice husks and sawdust for 48 hours. So there's a natural cycle," said Abdul Shukor Mohamad Salleh, 27, as he bought local delicacies at a Ramadan food market in Kuantan, one of many across the country. On her small plot near the city, Zulyna Mohamed Nordin, 53, sprays organic liquid fertiliser derived from the recycled food waste on her vegetable, banana and pineapple crops.
