Low-cost Composting Technology

Technology / Service Summary

Fermentation and composting technology for sludge, mushroom beds, tea leaves, and food residues without using any chemicals.
And the cultivation technology of the fermentation bacteria.

Purpose

Production of soil conditioners for rice cultivation, vegetables, and fruits.

Feature

The compost produced using this technology is safe for growing crops because no chemicals are used in the production process. In addition, the products derived from mushroom beds and tea leaves have the effect of preventing insects and continuous crop failure. In addition, they can be used as fermentation accelerators because they contain abundant fermentation bacteria.
It neutralizes acidic soil and makes it clustered. As a result, rooting becomes stronger and stems and leaves grow stronger.
In addition, the process of carbohydrate formation by photosynthesis is no longer necessary, so excess carbohydrates are distributed to cells, resulting in a crop rich in umami (amino acids).
