A new company has developed an organic waste recycling system that it says is capable of converting organic waste into premium grade fertilizer within 24 hours.
This would make the Rapid Thermophilic Digestion System, developed by Singapore-based Biomax Technologies, the fastest known composting process in the organic waste treatment industry.
“Traditional composting methods take around six months to process plantation waste due to its generally fibrous nature,” the company says on its website.
According to Biomax, the Rapid Thermophilic Digestion System uses a special cocktail of BM1 enzymes that are activated at very high temperatures to accelerate the natural composting process.
“The Biomax system of accelerating aerobic digestion through the introduction of carefully selected and cultured microorganisms seems to offer a genuine breakthrough in terms of rapidly treating biowastes at the point of production,” the company says.
The company hopes the system will be used as a one-stop point for waste collection, processing and storage. Biomax says their system has many applications across various industries, including agricultural, livestock and municipal waste treatment.
The company has also developed an automated digestor for use with the BM1 enzyme technology. The Digestor, as the system is known, is designed to produce a highly consistent product that is odorless, pathogen free and rich in organic matter.
“Our system offers a simple solution to the problems faced by many businesses when looking to dispose of organic wastes,” the company says.
