Studio Periscope are the winners in the professional category of the Victorian Design Challenge: The Waste Challenge. The Live Pitch at the NGV included many great ideas and we’re honoured to accept the award.
Our concept “Rollie” is a hot composting system for primary schools that combines education with play, to keep food waste out of landfill and transform it into a valuable resource.
Rollie is a giant hamster wheel that enables children to aerate compost in a new way, a task that is traditionally difficult and strenuous. It also encourages students and teachers to monitor and balance ingredients to achieve the ideal hot composting conditions.
Rollie uses aerobic (aerated) ‘hot’ composting, a method that is faster than anaerobic (not aerated) composting. It is also capable of breaking down more types of food waste and reduces methane gas production.
By making it easier and more enjoyable for children to get involved, Rollie helps to teach the techniques and value of composting while having a direct impact in the War on Waste.
