When it comes to organic waste composting machines that are fully automatic, then, Earth Care Equipments Pvt. Ltd stand tall in the market. The company manufactures and supplies two types of fully automatic food waste composting machines namely: Kwik composter (KC) and Kwik composter accelerator (KCA).
Since the auto nature of the machines is a source of competitiveness in the market, other producers have been attracted by the potentiality in the market. A case in point is the entry of ECEPL with their “KC” series of automatic organic waste composters.
This is a fully automatic Bio-Mechanical Composter operating as a continuous organic waste converter. It is designed to function without heaters. The electrical supply requirement of this converter is 3 ph and its connected load is 1.5 HP (Max). KC is one of the most well-known products of Earth Care Equipments Pvt. Ltd.
It uses a micro-organism based technology which is proven and sustainable. When you add organic waste into the machine, it converts it into compost enriched with nitrogen. The conversion process also reduces the volume of the original organic waste by about 80%.
The variety of organic waste that can be composted using this machine is generally wide. They include such refuse as vegetables, vegetable waste, fruits and fruit skins, cooked or uncooked meat, egg shells, bread/bakery items, street-sweeping leaves, leaves and tree branches, flowers and temple waste. Basically, these are organic waste from the kitchen or anything else coming from plants or animals so long as they are bio-degradable.
However, there are certain types of organic waste that cannot be composted using this type of machine. Such things as coconut shells, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, glass metal, newspaper, magazines, plastic bags, bottles, dog or cat droppings and sanitary pads/nappies are certainly unacceptable.
