Enhance the decomposition of organic matter for the production of humus compost from cellulosic and agricultural solid wastes.
Composting agent for cellulose/agricultural materials
SUKAAgri-C3008/C is a microbial-based product containing a concentrated blend of non-pathogenic beneficial organisms, multi-enzyme producing microorganisms that is directly added during the composting process. The microorganisms in the product utilize active digestive enzymes to degrade the organic matter and various carbohydrates present in the composting material. The ‘heart solution’ is used to supplement the inherent culture during composting and enhance the decomposition of organic matter for the production of humus compost from cellulosic and agricultural solid wastes.
SUKAAgri-C3008/C contains aerobic micro-organisms with specific biodegradative abilities which are able to grow and degrade organic substances during the composting process. The strain incorporated in SUKAAgri-C3008/C can rapidly degrade the organic materials in industrial, municipal and agricultural materials.
Composting is the decomposition of plant remains and other once-living materials to make an earthy, dark, crumbly substance that is excellent for adding to houseplants or enriching garden soil. In nature, organic wastes are broken down through a combination of biological and chemical processes. Biological agents like worms, insects, fungi, bacteria and other micro-organisms "chew up" the materials. Good composting is a matter of providing the proper environmental conditions for microbial life. Compost is made by billions of microbes (fungi, bacteria, etc.) that digest the agricultural, industrial and municipal wastes that are provided. All of these will slowly make compost out of the different wastes under any conditions. The products of digestion are further transformed by oxidation (exposure to air), reduction and hydrolysis (exposure to water).
Supplementation of the indigenous composting population with scientifically blended concentrations of selected, adapted, cultured and improved bacterial and fungal strains will increase the decomposition time and efficiency. These cultures are selected for better survival, faster exponential increase in population, enzyme production and organic waste degradation that will enhance the decomposting process of organic matter in compost production.
The standard concept for the decomposting of lignocellulosic biomass starts with opening the fiber structure to make the sugar fractions available for metabolic action by different organisms. Microbes utilize enzymes like cellulase, xylanase, a-amylase, lignin–degrading enzymes to release sugars from cellulose, hemicellulose, starch and other carbohydrates in the compost pile. Enhanced growth of desired microbial cultures in the composting heap will prevent the increase of undesirable microorganisms and vertebrates that produce undesirable odor, appearance and potentially pathogenic characteristics.
l reduces the organic waste material destined for landfills
l provides a useful way of reclaiming nutrients from organic refuse
l one of nature's best mulches and soil amendments
l supplement for commercial fertilizers
l compost is cheap
l compost improves soil structure, texture, and aeration and increases the soil's water-holding capacity
l compost loosens clay soils and helps sandy soils retain water
l compost addition improves soil fertility and stimulates healthy root development in plants
l the organic matter in compost provides food for microorganisms, which keeps the soil in a healthy, balanced condition
l nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus will be produced naturally by the feeding of microorganisms, so few soil amendments will need to be added
l saves valuable landfill space and possible contamination of land and water due to landfill 'leachate'
l can be used as fertiliser on farmland or in the garden
BENEFICIAL MICROOGANISMS FOR COMPOSTING
l The composting process uses beneficial microorganisms and higher animal life to decompose organic matter in industrial, municipal and agricultural materials.
l The organic portion of solid waste can also be biologically degraded by composting, the process by which organic solid waste of mixed composition is digested by aerobic (air loving), mesophilic (medium-temperature requiring) and thermophilic (high-temperature requiring) microorganisms.
l Composting is a microbial process that converts organic waste material into a stable, sanitary, humus-like product that can be used for the improvement of soil composition.
l Supplementation of the inherent microbial populations with high concentrations of selected, adapted, cultured and improved microbial strains with better survival ability, faster increase in bacterial population, high enzyme production will enhance the decomposition of organic matter.
l Effective combination of beneficial microorganisms will result to a reduction in composting time.
