home Composting

hot Composting

Home composting, or heat composting, is the degradation of food waste in a closed and insulated compost bin. The insulation holds the heat that is released in the composting process itself. The heat can rise to 50 - 70º C and quickly damages weeds and contaminants in the compost pulp, even in winter. The compost soil is excellent for use in flower beds and for potted plants. The result is good food soil and cheaper renovation. In the compost bin you can also put garden waste.

All organic waste from the household can be composted. For example, fruit and vegetable waste, flour and milk products, tea leaves and coffee grits, meat and fish residues, potted plants and garden waste.


Bokashi is a kitchen compost solution (NOT garden waste) that consists of a plastic bucket with a tight lid. You may want to keep the same in the kitchen cabinet with other source sorting. Bokashi is an anaerobic fermentation process, it is cold (no combustion) and the bokashimi microbes will have as little air as possible. The Bokashi needs little follow-up.

You can make super soil from all your food waste. The only thing not to go in the bokashib bucket is liquid food, such as soups.
