Our machines offer a greener and a cleaner alternative to the problem of organic waste disposal. Our Composters are automatic Bio-Mechanical and have continuous organic waste converter system. The organic waste added to the machine is converted into nitrogen rich compost by reducing its volume to almost 90% of the original. Ecopans Composting System is a simple and affordable solution for large scale waste management and can be used in areas like Residential complexes, Industrial canteens, Restaurants, Schools, Temples and everywhere there is the need to manage organic waste.
The process of our Composter is very simple and can be described as the following :
- Deposit organic waste at the inlet of the machine.
- Mixing, curing is automatically done by the machine
- Compost keeps collecting in a second chamber at the rear of the machine.
- Remove the compost from the Composter second chamber when it is full or when compost is needed
What is Composting?
Composting of waste is an aerobic (in the presence of air) method of decomposing solid wastes. The process involves decomposition of organic waste into humus known as compost which is a good fertiliser for plants. However, the term “composting” is used worldwide with differing meanings.
Some composting textbooks narrowly define composting as being an aerobic form of decomposition, primarily by microbes. An alternative term to composting is “aerobic digestion”, which in turn is also referred to as “wet composting”.
With the proper mixture of water, oxygen, carbon, and nitrogen, micro-organisms are allowed to break down organic matter to produce compost.
The composting process is dependent on micro-organisms to break down organic matter into compost. There are many types of microorganisms found in active compost
What is compost and how can it be used?
Compost is generally recommended as an additive to soil, or other matrices such as coir and peat, as a tilth improver, supplying humus and nutrients. It provides a richgrowing medium, or a porous, absorbent material that holds moisture and soluble minerals, providing the support and nutrients in which plants can flourish, although it is rarely used alone, being primarily mixed with soil, sand, grit, bark chips, vermiculite, perlite, or clay granules to produce loam.
Compost can be tilled directly into the soil or growing medium to boost the level of organic matter and the overall fertility of the soil. Compost that is ready to be used as an additive is dark brown or even black with an earthy smell.
