Items that come from nature and decompose are wet garbage. Example – kitchen waste, garden waste.
Biological processes in the machine are not affected by small quantities of non-biodegradable material. However, these materials occupy valuable space in the machine and should be avoided. These materials may be removed from the machine through observation windows, wherever provided. Otherwise, they come out along with the compost from the outlet of the machine.
TMK Composter is designed to handle 20% excess material. However, if more organic waste is loaded, output compost will not be fully cured. Also, there are chances of foul smell.
The output can be used immediately. However, a further curing period ranging from 2 to 4 weeks is recommended.
You should go for organic waste composting machine instead of traditional composting techniques. This is the best option for organic composting of bio-degradable waste on your premises. The basic working principle of this machine is that it is an aerobic decomposing process (no odour, no pathogenic activity) occurring in a chamber. The output that we get is nothing but manure, which can be used as fertilizer for gardening.
Aerobic decomposting process is the best solution for oxidised organic waste. These aerobic microorganisms use the oxygen present and lose hydrogen. All oxidising reactions are exothermic, so we can use thermophilic bacteria (eg. Bacillus species) in a closed vessel with blower. This will mature organic waste to oxidise.
It depends on the model you wish to purchase. For eg. TG-CC-500 has 500kg per day organic waste processing capacity.
No gases as there is aerobic digestion taking place i.e. continuous air intake and air outlet.
Items to be placed in: Food Waste, Fish, Fish Bones, Meat, Meat Bones, Poultry, Poultry Bones, Vegetables, Fruits, Fruits & Vegetable Peels, Pasta, Rice, Bread & Pastry, Egg-Shells, Manure, Faeces & Yard Waste Cattle, Horse, Dog, Yard Trimmings.
Items to be avoided: Plastics, Metal Objects, Construction Waste, Textiles, Wood/Wooden Objects, Coconut-Shells.
Yes. The organic fertilizer can be used directly in gardens or plants. Since it is concentrated it needs to be mixed with soil in the proportion of 10:1 (soil: compost) and then added to the plants.
Yes, the machine has to be connected to the source for 24 hours. However, it consumes power only 8 to 11 hours depending on the humidity content of the waste. However, the air supply blower and the electronic circuit would operate for 24 hours.
Approximately 10% to 15% of the organic waste input is converted to compost.
The odor is controlled under the Deodorization System, which comes as a part of the machine.
No. As it is fully automatic, the garbage collector can just open the lid and dump the segregated waste into it.
12 months warranty is provided on manufacturing defects only.
- It can be used for the gardens in the premises as a soil nutrient.
- It can be sold to fertilizer companies or on e-commerce websites like Amazon where it can fetch USD20/KG or more.
- It can be donated to the nearby nurseries or to the farmers and you can be a contributor to the development of the nation.
- A local government body might collect the compost depending upon where you are.
