Compost building

Compost building uses compost makers and a variety of organic waste materials to manufacture a useful product which returns essential nutrients back to the soil. The various types of organic waste include kitchen waste like uncooked fruit and vegetable trimmings, yard waste like leaves and weeds, crop residues like stalks and hay, wood from trees and manures from poultry, humans, horses and cows.The size of the operation and compost turner equipment needed depends largely on the type and amount of waste available to the compost manufacturer.

The secret to building compost lies in balance, because composting organisms require four equally important elements to work effectively. These four elements are;

 

Carbon - for microbial oxidation which produces energy as heat.

Nitrogen - for the reproduction of oxidising organisms, nitrogen provides the protein.

Oxygen - for the oxidisation of carbons.

Water - for maintaining the balance of activity without causing anaerobic conditions.

 

Too much oxygen, water or carbon slows the process down. Oxygen and water balance is critical for maintaining the high temperatures needed to break down organic materials. Compost building has many benefits and a well-managed compost pile will reach temperatures high enough to kill fly eggs and larvae, weed seeds and pathogens. Compost building reduces odours associated with rotting organic material, reduces the bulk of uncomposted material by up to sixty percent, turns waste into a useful and marketable product, and evens out grazing patters of livestock on land unpolluted by fresh manure.
