The materials put into the compost pile have a major impact on how well the composting process works and the quality of the final compost. SSO is our layer one and greatly benefits the capture of nutrient rich compost feedstock. The collection of organic material in our Organix Solution liners provide the highest and best use towards nutrient rich compost. One of the keys to controlling the quality of compost is to source separate compostable organics at home. Another key is to have a variety of materials and a balanced carbon to nitrogen ratio. Variety increases the types of microorganisms at work and in your chances of obtaining nutrient rich compost.
Compost that is rich in nutrients can be 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, and as a natural pesticide for soil. In ecosystems, compost is useful for erosion control, land and stream reclamation, wetland construction, and soil remediation.
Organic ingredients intended for composting can alternatively be used to generate biogas through anaerobic digestion.
