Outline:

Jonathan Fenton developed the award-winning Biopod during his final year at Loughborough Design School. The composter quickly received interest from companies such as Lakeland. Being one of the first ventures to be supported by the Studio enabled Jonathan to develop the product that manages part of the waste food-to-composter chain by maintaining a vacuum seal on food that is waiting to be transferred from the kitchen to the composter. Jonathan also works on other projects such as home entertainment systems, steam irons and body wash.
