Bokashi composting offers several advantages:

  1. Speed: Bokashi composting is generally faster than traditional composting methods, with the fermented material breaking down more quickly in the soil.

  2. Acceptance of All Types of Waste: Bokashi composting can handle a wider range of organic materials, including meat, dairy, and cooked foods, which might attract pests in traditional compost piles.

  3. Indoor Use: Bokashi composting is well-suited for urban or indoor environments where outdoor composting might not be feasible.

  4. Nutrient-Rich Output: The bokashi tea produced during the fermentation process is a valuable liquid fertilizer that can benefit plants.

Despite its advantages, bokashi composting also has some considerations:

  1. Initial Cost: Setting up a bokashi composting system might require an investment in the bokashi mix and a specialized bin.

  2. Maintenance: Regular maintenance is required, such as layering waste with the bokashi mix and draining the liquid.

  3. Maturation Period: The fermented material still needs time to fully break down and mature before it can be added to the soil.

In conclusion, a bokashi compost bin offers an innovative and efficient way to compost a wide variety of organic materials, making it a great option for those seeking a composting method that can be used in various settings.

Business Opportunity:

Bokashi Bran has a business opportunity for an entrepreneur. We are looking for partners in the Gauteng area to collect the drums from restaurants and take them for commercial composting. Contact Bronwyn on 082 456 9225 for more information.

Bokashi Bin

The easiest method for commercial composting bokashi food waste is for the earth-moving equipment to make a hole in the top of the windrow.

The drums from the restaurant with the bokashi food waste are emptied into the loader skip.

It is then tipped into the top of the windrow and covered with compost.

After a week, the windrow is turned as normal. With the heat build-up and EM inside the bokashi, all the food waste will have completely decomposed.

The compost will continue the normal cycle of being turned every week until it is screened and ready for sale.

This organic compost will have excellent levels of potassium, phosphorous, calcium, magnesium and manganese. The organic carbon content is also high which is essential for healthy soil.

Commercial composting for restaurant food waste management is the most eco-friendly option because the food waste doesn’t rot resulting in CO2 emissions. It is “recycled” so that it can be used in a beneficial way for food farming.
