The Problem with Organic Waste Disposal
Here at Earth Care Equipments Pvt Ltd., we see waste processing as not only an economically efficient way to dispose off of organic waste but also as an environmentally conscious alternative to landfills, waste dumping and incineration. Large scale industrial composting equipment’s is the only viable to solution to tackle the burgeoning garbage problem that has gripped both rural and urban municipalities (according to the World Bank the projected global garbage production for 2050 will be about 3 billion tonnes of garbage).
Garbage treatment includes a number of methods for disposal ranging from recycling, re-purposing, and dumping in landfills. Solid and liquid organic wastes that end up in landfills cause further environmental problems such as soil contamination, build-up of toxic chemicals that disturb the groundwater pH, and most importantly prevent the emission of unwanted methane that occurs due to anaerobic decomposition in untreated landfills over a long period of time.
Incineration or simply put, the controlled burning of garbage also released massive amounts of carbon dioxide and the haze, smoke and smog thus produced affects the quality of breathable air available in the environment.
Organic waste is those types of refuse or garbage that are composed of living organisms and are naturally bio-degradable. These include kitchen waste such as leftover food, rotten fruit and vegetables and their peels/cores/skins, rotten meat, expired foods and beverages, etc. It also includes human waste including all human excreta such as faeces, urine and other bodily substances. Other examples of organic waste are garden refuse such as dead plants, roots, dead vermin, insects, etc.
Beyond household waste, organic waste can also be produced from meat and dairy farms/factories, includes sewage sludge, paper and wood waste, and other food production/treatment processes that create decomposable waste. Industrial organic wastes such as pharmaceutical waste, medical waste from hospitals, clinics, hotels, resorts, corporate buildings, large & medium scale factories and farms, construction etc. also pose a threat to the environment.
It is imperative for any responsible industry to engage in Green Waste Management Practices as a necessary end process to their manufacturing and production, and as responsible stakeholders for the environment. These processes are recommended by the Ministry of Environment, Forests & Climate Change as a combative practice to rising global temperatures.
The method of disposal and/or treatment of these organic wastes is specific to the type of waste. For example, a lot of paper and wood waste can be recycled while some sewage and human waste (in large quantities) requires treatment. MOST of the above listed organic wastes however can be dealt with effectively, efficiently, and economically through the process of green waste composting on a large scale.
Earth Care Equipments Pvt Ltd.’s Innovative Solution
Earth Care Equipments Pvt Ltd. prides itself as being a leader in providing long-term solutions to this increasing environmental impact of unchecked garbage generation, disposal and waste management.
By combining cutting-edge composting technology designed with a view to achieve maximum end-user ease of operation and use, we at Earth Care Equipments Pvt Ltd. have created the Kwik Composter™ that would beat out any rival industrial composting machine claiming to be the best composting machine on the market. An immensely successful and popular product, the Kwik Composter is a fully automated Bio-Mechanical Composter with a Continuous Organic Waste Convertor.
As far as industrial composting methods go, the Bio-Mechanical Treatment of organic waste is by far the most straight-forward, low-cost and beneficial method for composting.This is because it combines the mechanical process of sorting your waste for you followed by a process of in-curing and organic decomposition that produces extremely useful nitrogen rich compost that can be further used as a bio-fertilizer among others uses.
The Kwik Composter is a one-of-a-kind large scale composting equipment that is not only completely silent in its operation but is almost 100% odourless. Where most other industrial composting or regular composting produces an offensive smell during the breakdown process, the result of the creation of noxious gases from putrefaction, our Kwik Composter has been specifically designed to be air-tight and treat the smells in-situ through its carbon activated filters (an additional odour filter is available as an accessory for a more complete deodorization).
The Kwik Composter is one of the most user-friendly machines on the market that requires minimal human intervention in the composting process and has incredibly low operational and maintenance costs. Our Kwik Composter only needs to be loaded with organic materials and the culture required for composting. Following this the machine handles the entirety of the remaining process in a fully automated fashion. This continuous organic waste conversion fills the up the compost bag which only needs to be emptied and replaced when the chamber is at capacity.
The Kwik Composters boasts a radical 80% reduction in the volume of the waste while most industrial composting methods only reduce the volume in about half, and landfills are far slower. Our Composter utilizes the leachate and produces almost nominal residual waste, further adding green economic value to the later stages of waste disposal and ensuring only inert wastes reach landfills.
The Kwik Composter is available in a range of 12 different models. These models are capable of waste conversion at the rate of 50 kgs to 2000 kgs per day depending on the model.
This diverse range of models and corresponding capacities was a conscious production choice by Earth Care Equipments Pvt Ltd. to ensure that a variety of customers can have their green waste management needs met, whether they be heavy-duty large scaled industries, medium to small sized facilities or simply to meet localized wasted conversion necessities (such as that of apartment complexes or societies). Not to mention that the machine itself is fully electronically controlled and is simple enough for the average worker/labourer to utilize without the need for a special technical qualification.
Benefits of the Kwik Composter
The end result of composting is a nitrogen rich, ready to use compost that is a ready alternative to harmful, expensive chemical fertilizers that damage crops and severely impact the quality of food produce. Compost can be used an alternative to soil for certain types of farming, to improve water retention, fertility and top-soil strength It is integral in re-stabilizing soil pH that has been affected by aggressive farming practices or by deforestation or the seepage of chemical waste into it. Nitrogen rich, matured compost such as that produced by the Kwik Composter can even be used a natural pesticide, fungicide and deter pests and insects.
Its excellent as part of any agricultural, botanical eco-system whether that be traditional farming, homegrown nurseries, the lawns, gardens and landscapes of large complexes such as residential societies or schools or universities, for orchards and fields. It aids in significantly in reforestation and reducing the negative impacts of on-going defoliation. It makes for an excellent mix to add to potted plants, as mulch for larger bush and tree orchards and in the development of smaller gardens and lawns as well.
Compost is imperative in the maintenance of soil integrity and blocking the spread of plant malaise, and the erosion of earth metals into ground water which might end up in plants and eventually our bodies. By adding organic matter, carbon and humus, Compost actually regenerates bad soil. It also facilitates the proliferation of earthworms in soil that only serve to increase the quality of crops. It also reduces the need for irrigation in farming while also increasing terrain stability in non-agricultural land spaces such as roadsides and landscape lawns.
By opting for an automated composting process our customers have not only established themselves a progressive, environmentally conscious ventures but also significantly reduced the size of landfills.
Aside from its obvious environmental and agricultural value, compost made from green organic food waste has a huge market for sale and would be beneficial to any customer seeking to add an additional source of income to their on-going business. Compost is truly one of the most successful scientific projects, and we at Earth Care Equipments Pvt Ltd. are proud to be able to provide a solution to waste management that not only disposes off waste but converts it into a profitable, utilizable, 100% eco-friendly product.
