What is an organic waste?
Organic wastes contain materials which originated from living organisms. Organic waste is the waste generated from the materials such as waste/left over food, rotten fruits, vegetables, meat and bones, garden waste such as dry leafs, woods, waste paper.
Why Organic waste harmful?
Burying organic waste in landfill is harmful because when organic waste is dumped in landfill, it undergoes anaerobic decomposition; due to the lack of oxygen it generates methane. When released into the atmosphere, methane is 20 times more potent a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide.
Way to convert organic waste into compost?
Organic Waste converter: It is a machine that converts organic waste into compost that can be used as fertilizer.
How does composting take place in machine?
Composting is a way to treat solid waste so that microorganisms break down the organic material, helping along the natural process of decay until it can be safely handled, stored and applied to the environment. Machine helps the process to get faster with proper handling of suitable environmental conditions inside the machine. It monitors the temperature and humidity and maintains when it gets high or low. The decomposition process is aided by shredding the plant matter, adding water and ensuring proper aeration by regularly turning the mixture. Worms and fungi further break up the material. Aerobic Bacteria requiring oxygen to function and fungi manage the chemical process by converting the inputs into heat, carbon dioxide and ammonium. The ammonium (NH4) is the form of nitrogen used by plants. Finally produced Compost is rich in nutrients. It is used in gardens, landscaping, horticulture, and agriculture. The compost itself is beneficial for the land in many ways, including as a soil conditioner, a fertilizer, addition of vital humus or humic acids, and as a natural pesticide for soil. In ecosystems, compost is useful for erosion control, land and stream reclamation, wetland construction.
