The aim of vertisa compost machine is to provide a reliable and efficient system for people with food waste problems. Composting of organic food wastes, we have obtained a valuable resource from our food wastes.
After composting, the volume of food waste is reduced by 90%, which is a huge investment in this environment. In addition , the resulting compost, the soil which loses its vitality due to the use of chemical fertilizers to be re-productive, organic agriculture is supported and the sustainability of farming.
The biological process carried out in vertisa composting devices is completely natural and does not contain any foreign matter that would harm nature. Biological process takes place very quickly in the device.
What is Compost?
Composting is the decomposition of organic matter in the garbage by biochemical means, Aerobic or anaerobically, of organisms called microorganisms, which are not visible to the eye. In this way, nitrogen and carbon rich, very valuable fertilizer is called compost. In order for this to happen, water content in the garbage mass has to be around 45 to 60%.
What Are The Benefits Of Compost?
Discarded kitchen waste in nylon bags produces serious economic and ecological costs. In big cities, the amount of daily garbage produced per person is about 1.5 kg and 50 – 60% of it is organic waste that can be composted. Fossil fuels consumed in the garbage transport process are reduced to the extent that we can convert methane gas, toxic water, odor and other dangers to the environment, as well as the destruction caused by the countless nylon bags that are turned into waste each day, into ”unused resources” that we call waste.
Evaluates organic waste
Organic waste, which will create pollution by accumulating in a place or cause air pollution by burning, becomes a useful and valuable resource thanks to natural processes. The problem is the solution.
Improves soil structure
Aggregate (agglomerate). It encourages the formation of aggregates because it increases the amount of organic matter in multi-clays or sandy soils. Agregat, on the other hand, allows the soil to breathe.
During the rainy period keeps moisture in the soil and reduces evaporation.
It prevents the erosion caused by rain by absorbing excess water like sponges. 100 kg humus can hold about 195 kg of water.
Allows the soil to take off
It creates an airy layer at the top of the soil, creating a healthy surface that allows various soil organisms to move. This allows the soil to be ventilated easily. For example, when the plant roots get air easily, potassium intake becomes easier.
Provides nutrients at the time plants need
Synthetic fertilizers in Salt form enter into a form that plants can take directly when mixed with water and they are “forced to drink”. More than that can not be taken by the plants, it penetrates under the ground and leads to the pollution of the underground waters. Compost contains nutrients that plants can take at any time and in the form of slow release. It is not only a food source, it is also a food storage.
Neutralizes toxins in the soil
Toxic substances and heavy metals present in the soil are transformed into a form that plants cannot take with their roots and are fixed. Compost is also used for the rehabilitation of severely contaminated soils.
Regulates the pH of the soil
if the pH level is too high or low, it can be difficult for plants to use them even if there is sufficient nutrients in the soil.
In soils with plenty of compost added, the pH level required by plants spreads to a wider range and more flexible conditions are provided.
Accelerates growth and strengthens plants
Even at very low concentrations, it has been observed that the growth of plants is accelerating thanks to humic acid provided by compost to the soil.
Does animal manure replace compost?
Many people think that it is not worth the effort and time to make compost, but rather it is easier to use direct animal manure and again the same result. But that’s not true. Fresh manure begins to lose its nutritional value and microbial richness from the moment it leaves the animal’s body. Even if it is mixed into the soil, it takes time for the fertilizer to break down, especially where rainfall and humidity are low…
Compost is a mixture that improves soil structure. If rich mineral content is provided, then a product that is much richer and more useful than raw animal fertilizer is obtained. For this reason, the compost process of fertilizer in the product yield, taste, while increasing the nutritional value, soil richness is not consumed provides an additive.
