For my science fair project, I designed and constructed an organic scraps bin that is able to decrease the significance of lingering odours, as well as filter out potentially harmful gases. I called it the Fresh Air Green Bin. I was prompted to build a green bin like this, due to the constant, unsettling odour that was being emitted from the city green bin. It turns out that the cause of the odours are hydrogen sulphide, methane, and ammonia. The Fresh Air Green Bin utilizes activated carbon filters, and Ammosorb deodorizing granules, to counter each of these unpleasant gases.
