Contained Rapid Composting Technology
The technology is a better way of disposing biodegradable wastes. Using this biodigester, composting period can be reduced to only 11 days. The biodegradable wastes are converted to good quality compost with a nitrogen content of more than 2%. The biodigester consists of a shredder, aerator, plastic bins and leachate collector. The shredder cuts up the waste to hasten the composting process. Fungus activator is added to the shredded wastes to catalyze the process. Fungus activator is added to the shredded wastes to catalyze the process. One plastic bin is filled up within 1-2 days. Then, the bin is aerated daily with heated air to ensure aerobic decomposition. The bin is harvested after 7-11 days. The biodigester’s size and capacity is designed to fit the volume of wastes of the particular application; no foul smell from composting wastes, thus, not flies or other insects are attracted to it; and rodents and other animals cannot access the composting wastes as the bins are covered.
