We use Bioclean Septic in our kitchen drainage lines and septic tanks and have seen a significant reduction in fats, oil and grease in the kitchen drainage line and no clogging. Odour has been eliminated from the drainage line and septic tanks. There has also been a significant reduction in nuisance caused by flies, mosquitoes and other insects.

Around 30 families reside in this area. We have access to very little water and there was no toilet in our neighbourhood. Walking long distance in search of a safe place posed a major problem. Now Organica Biotech has installed four bio-toilets just beside my house, and this has made my life a lot easier.
We are using Organica’s composting machine, Compost King, to compost wet waste from the kitchen. The machine is simple to operate, and up to 80% reduction in volume is achieved in a day, while the final compost is prepared within 72 Hours. The process and final output are odourless. We highly recommend it to manage organic wet waste at source.

Vermicomposting and microbial composting are two separate process of making compost. Vermicomposting is carried out by earthworms that feed on complex organic matter and excrete out simple organic matter which enriches this soil. Our specially selected enzyme producing microbes accelerate the further degradation of this relatively simple organic matter in bioavailable form for plants to use. So to answer your question, SoilMate may not have a direct impact on the first stage of the vermicomposting process, but it will prove very useful in accelerating the second part of the process I.e. enriching your compost by increasing the bioavailable nutrients.

How can moisture content of waste be checked before addition to the bin while making compost at home?
Moisture content can be estimated by a simple hand squeeze test while making compost at home as it does not require any instrument. Wear a glove, take the solid fraction of the sample in your palm and press it, dont overdo it.
If the solid fraction doesn’t stick together or is dusty the moisture is low.
If the material releases drops of water on pressing the moisture content is high. The material must stick together and feel moist to achieve ideal moisture content.
How does one control the moisture content while making compost in a home composting process?
Controlling the moisture is very crucial step while making compost. If the waste added to the bin is too dry, spray water to add moisture. If the waste looks too wet add brown material like cocopeat, sawdust, dry leaves etc. that can soak the moisture.
What is the appropriate moisture content range for making compost of good quality?
For making compost the ideal moisture content lies between 40 – 55%. If the moisture level is below 35%, the bacterial activity may be hindered and if it rises above 60% there are chances of system turning into anaerobic and give off a rotting odour.

How does one know if the C: N ratio is maintained properly in a home composting process?
Proper degradation of waste material, reduction in volume of waste minus the emanation of ammonia-like or rotten egg like odours is the easiest way to understand if you have maintained proper C: N ratio for your home composting.
What is the reason for foul smelling while making compost?
Most of the time the foul odour coming from the composting bin is due to occurrence of anaerobic conditions inside the bin, low C: N ratio of the waste can also lead to release of ammonia like smell from your home composting bin.
How does the C: N ratio affect the process of making compost?
If the C: N ratio is high, the degradation process will slow down due to nitrogen deficiency. In a low C: N ratio the microbes will not proliferate due to lack of carbon which in turn affects process of making compost, encourages bad odour and causes incomplete degradation of waste.
How does one accelerate the process of making compost from garden waste mostly containing dry leaves as waste material?
The dry leaves are high in carbon content, containing material like lignin that takes longer duration for degradation. Addition of a compost maker and nitrogen containing material like kitchen waste, urea etc. can accelerate the composting of garden waste.
