Compost the black gold

In "Compost - the black gold" is explained how the safe re-use of organic waste and faecal matter can increase your yields and improve your soil


Compost is a natural material of recycled organic waste. Compost is rich in organic matter nutrients, particularly in Phosphorus and Potassium it enriches the humus content and improves microbiological activity.

In the process of composting, organic waste is generated under the influence of living organisms - micro and macro-organism. The active micro and macro-organism produce a hot climate in the compost heap so that the material is sanitised; pathogens and parasite eggs are deactivated.

Human faeces and other organic waste are rich in plant nutrients. Through composting, these nutrients become easier available for plants and in the same time faecal matter is sanitised and does not spread in the environment.
