The cülie takes temperature, humidity and organic compound measurements to determine what type of waste is in the bin, and uses computer learning and AI to optimize the tempurature and humidity parameters to eliminate the decay (determined by the reduction of the organic compounds in the internal atmosphere)
The bin also connects with the network to determine the most efficient way to adjust the internal atmosphere. It tracks when your pin is full and reminds you to empty it through a simple notification! This is not only useful when determining how much you are saving the environment, but it is more energy efficient when it is not full to the brim!
No. The cülie was designed around the common grocery bag. There is also a bagless option. For kitchen use, simply put in any plastic bag of your choice and you’re ready to go. Check with your municipality as some locations require you to use compostable bags.
For diapers, simply use any bag that fits in the cülie with or without the bin.
The cülie typically holds up to a week’s worth of food scraps.
The cülie holds up 40 newborn diapers with the bin, or up to 60 newborn diapers without a bin or about of a week of diapers.
Many municipalities and cities across North America are moving to institute green bin programs where residents are required to sort their organic kitchen waste from their regular waste. This creates an issue with foul odors, pests, mold, and the dreaded garbage juice. Many people decide not to participate in these programs because of these nuisances.
The cülie helps with these programs by creating a better user experience for everyone.
For the initial product launch, the cülie will come in one size that fits the needs of most homes. The cülie has a base footprint of 13.5 x 12.5 inches and a height of 25 inches.
The bin has a volume of 12 L or 3.2 Gallons.
Based on real world tests that the cülie team has performed, the cülie uses around 23 KWh of power per month at the highest power setting. This translates to around $2.50 per month depending your jurisdiction. The costs will vary based on your jurisdiction, temperature settings, and other factors.Production cülies are expected to have lower operating costs as manufacturing quality is improved over the prototypes.
