HIGH QUALITY COMPOST
The cylindrical design of the machine provides more surface area required for the composting process. Also, it helps ensure easier agitation of the loaded waste.
The cylindrically shaped vessel ensures that there are no cold spots, thereby overcoming the accumulation of waste in corners.
The machine is designed such that it can easily be accommodated in less space for its rated capacity.
The machine is equipped with a bio-filter which contains a carbon source for removal of bad odour from organic waste.
This design enables return on investment within the shortest possible time due to the nature of waste. The cost of the equipment can be recovered in short span.
High quality compost
The machine gives high quality of compost provided factors such as temperature, moisture, oxygen, C and N ratio are maintained as desired.
From 1 kg/day to 10 kg/day – Tray type
From 25 kg/day to 1000 kg/day – Vessel type
WHAT IS COMPOSTING?
Composting is the controlled biological decomposition and conversion of solid organic material into humus like substance called compost. Composting is the process of letting the nature to transform the organic materials into a material with environmentally beneficial applications. The process is aerobic, meaning it requires oxygen.
Composting is most efficient when the major parameters — oxygen, surface area, nitrogen/ carbon ratio, moisture and temperature — Balanced healthy compost depends on above five things:
Oxygen is very important in composting because it fosters the growth of aerobic bacteria. Aerobic bacteria are those that grow and live in the presence of oxygen and are very efficient in breaking down waste.
Optimal composting temperatures range between 50-60˚C. If the compost becomes too cold, decomposition will slow or stop completely.
Keep your compost damp–not too dry and not too wet. Moisture allows the bacteria to travel around in the compost. If the compost is too dry, the bacteria cannot survive and decomposition will slow or cease. If it’s too wet, it will limit the amount of oxygen that aerobic bacteria require to survive. In the event you add too much and it becomes sloppy inside, simply add some dry waste that will absorb the moisture such as leaves, grass or wood chips.
The more surface area, the faster the decomposition and the more usable compost for your garden. A jar full of small stones will have more surface area than one big rock in that same jar. In the same way, smaller pieces of waste will have greater surface area for the bacteria to work on than large chunks. They will break down much quicker. Therefore, for the fastest decomposition use smaller pieces of waste ideally 1″ or less in size.
Almost all organic material will compost. The ideal conditions require a 2:1 ratio of carbon rich (browns) to nitrogen rich greens (2 parts brown to 1 part green).
