EcoSwiss for the Maldivian Parliament in Malé (Maldives)

Typical government structure with both administrative and representative services.
About 80 staff work at the facility, as well as about 90 members of Parliament who meet for sessions.
Foreign delegations are hosted almost daily, managing an average of 80-120 breakfasts and meals.

  • Type of organic waste: pasta, rice, bread, vegetables, fruit and fish.
    Preparation activity: about 240 meals/day
  • Average daily quantity of organic waste produced: 70-80 Kg


  • Eliminating noxious odors from the waste collection and storage area, also caused by the strong heat in the area, in order to preserve the government's image.
  • Improving the sanitary conditions of the waste storage area
  • Reducing the use of personnel assigned to washing, conditioning, and sanitizing the bins intended for the collection of wet waste
  • Reducing the presence of insects, mice, and other animals that nest near organic waste containers
  • Reducing the weekly cost of disposing of waste by transporting it through the capital and onward to incinerator islands
  • Finding a sustainable solution in line with the political objectives of the Maldivian government, aimed at ecological sustainability to protect the atolls and the coral reef

Adopted solution

Purchase and implementation of an EcoSwiss machine to manage all the wet organic waste produced daily by the canteen of the government building.

Installation of the machinery in the area dedicated to catering services, adjacent to the preparation area. The small amount of condensation water produced is disposed of in the nearby drain.

Average daily quantity of resulting product, reusable locally as soil conditioner for plants and flowers: 10 -15 Kg per machine.
