Community Composting Options
The community digesters come in three capacity sizes explicitly 5kg, 35kg, and 45kg.
❋ The digesters stand approximately 6 ft from the ground level
❋ The rainproof shed is required to place the digesters so that rainwater does not get inside and spoil the process
❋ The 35kg and 45kg ones weigh around 2-2.5 tons. It is essential to have a solid base and flooring for the digesters to withstand the weight
❋ The system of layering helps in the efficient processing of the wet waste. The weight and volume of the organic waste go down by 40-50% per day as the processing occurs.
❋ At the end of the cycle, we get approximately 25% of input waste as compost. For example, for every 100kg of food waste when processed will generate nearly 25kg of organic waste
This digester can take upto 50Kgs/Day and support between 70 and 80 Households.
The size of this digester is 1.5m x 2m x 1m
