Compost is the soil conditioner which is produced by microorganisms at the end of the biological degradation of the biodegredable waste such as vegetable/fruit waste, food waste, garden waste, tea/coffee waste etc.
Composting defines the biochemical separation of the organic substances within wastes with the help of the atmospheric oxygen by the living creatures that are called microorganisms, most which are not seen by the eye.
In the process of composting, the organic material decomposes rapidly before, then the decomposition rate getting slow until stable organic mass is formed. After the second stage, the slow decomposing organic substances stabilize and mature.
Why Should We Use The Compost Machines
Biodegradable wastes are transformed slowly in nature. By running compost machines that are used fort he Zero Waste Project, this process is accelerated by creating the appropriate conditions fort he activation of microorganisms, and the final compost is obtained within approximately 4 weeks.
The YC 100 and YC 200 compost machines are used fort he system to accelerate the composting process.
With the use of composting devices, an efficient solid waste management system can be achieved. If biodegradable wastes which have a much higher mass volume ratio, can be managed separately at their source, then the remaining part of the municipal solid waste which has a clean, high quality, compressible, and easily. It will be possible to obtain quality compost by managing the wastes that will affect the collection organization of wet biodegradable wastes. It will be possible to obtain quality compost by managing the wastes that will affect the collection organization of wet biodegradable wastes.
The Working System of Compost Machine
The biodegredable waste such as vegetable/fruit waste, food waste, garden waste, tea/coffee waste etc. are shredded in the inlet chamber to accelerate the functioning of microorganisms. After that the biodegredable waste will be transformed to compost by microorganisms in an aerated chamber.
Materials are automatically mixed so the process can be easily operated. The compost machine has a compact structure which includes the shredder chamber, aerated composting chamber and the maturing chamber.
The compost machines provide solution fort he biodegradable waste at source. The refore the biodegradable wastes can be transformed to the compost easily without transporting anywhere.
Benefits of Compost
Recyling Organic Waste
Organic wastes that will accumulate in a place or cause pollution by burning will become a useful and valuable resource through natural processes.
Improving Soil Structure
It provides aggregation. It promotes the formation of aggregates because it increases the amount of organic matter in soils. The aggregate allows the soil to breathe.
It heeps moisture in the soil during the precipitation and reduces evaporation. Prevents erosion caused by rain by absorbing excess water like sponge. 100 kg compost, can hold about 195-200 kg water.
Enables Soil To Be Ventilated
By creating an airy layer on the top of the soil, it creates a healthy surface that allows the movement of various soil creatures. In this way, the soil provides comfortable ventilation. When plant roots can breathe comfortably, potassium intake becomes easier.
Provides Nutrients At A Time When Plants Need It (Slow-Release)
In the form of salt synthetic fertilizers can be talken directly by plants when mixed with water and are forced into plants.
As it cannot be taken by the plants, it infiltrates the soil and causes the pollution of the ground water. Compost contains slow-release nutrients that plants can take at any time and form. It is not only a food source, it is also a food store.
Neutralizes Toxins In Soil
The toxic substances and heavy metals present in the soil are transformed into a form that the plants cannot take with their roots. Compost is also used in the rehabilitation of severely contaminated soils.
Regulates The pH Balance Of Soil
When the pH level is too high or too low, it may be difficult for plants to use them even if there is enough nutrients in the soil. In soils where high amount of compost is added, the pH level of plants is spread over a wider range and more flexible conditions are provided.
Accelerates Growth And Strengthens Plants
It has been observed that plant growth accelerates because of the humic acid in the soil, even at very low density.
With the understanding of Zero Waste concept, wastes can be regrouped under 12 categories. The incorrect practices of each of these and the damage caused by these practices to the environment should be known, and the recycling processes should be applied in the specified ways.
