Foundation Aerobic Compost

Foundation Aerobic Compost is produced from carefully selected inputs which would normally go to land fill. We take in a large variety of putrescible organic material, for example fish waste, chicken litter, food scraps and organic sludges and we combine these with green waste, which is mulched and removed by Pure Living Soil from your local transfer stations.

Using a precise formula and special turning equipment the inputs are placed into windrows and transformed into compost. Throughout the production run of approximately 12 weeks the compost is tested for carbon dioxide and temperature readings. In the latter stages of production samples are taken for testing, which indicates if the compost has completed transformation.

Once the composting cycle is complete, the product contains a minimum of 25% active humus and is rich in nutrient as shown by this typical analysis on the right.
