The natural solution for composting of kitchen
scraps as well as organic garden material and faeces from dry diverting
Composting is natures
own way by means of micro-organisms to transform waste to a soil conditioner
and fertilizers. The quantity of household waste can be reduced by 50 %.
BIOKUB consists of shape blown building elements of 100% recycled
BIOKUB is supplied
with two alternative types of insulating material., and either a grated
plastic bottom plate or a solid bottom.
When the Swedish
ICA-kuriren tested composters in No. 13/1999 they found BIOKUB to be the
best. BIOKUB was also the best in test in "Råd och Rön" Nr. 7/2003.
HOW TO START COMPOSTING Where possible
place the composter in a shadow place to avoid that the compost gets to warm.
Put a 15 cm layer of brushwood and twig at the bottom of the composter to
ensure that air can enter the compost and ventilate it.
Don't just put solely kitchen waste ore solely
garden waste in your composter. It is advantageous to compost about 50% of
each and preferably- add some soil. This will permit the micro-organism from
the soil to mix with the carbon contained in the garden waste. The compost
must not be dried out but should have a consistency of a squeezed sponge.
Water should be added when required. For airing and opening-up of the
material a BIOKUB airing-screw can be supplied.
The emptying is easy. The upper not yet
composted material is shovelled out and placed at the side of the composter.
A few elements are lifted off to facilitate the transport of the ready
material to a wheel barrow. When the composter is emptied the elements are
rinsed and the lifted-off elements are put back. Finally the not yet
composted material, placed at the side of the composter, is shovelled back and
the composter is again in function.
