This is made possible by the sufficient air supply to the air-loving (” aerobic “) compost organisms which are responsible for the composting process. Compared to a SUPERCOMP, conventional compost piles are often poorly ventilated at their core (the middle of the pile), which leads to the air-loving compost organisms “slaving away” with bad air quality. The result is a slow composting process (up to 24 months), which is often accompanied by unpleasant odours due to putrefaction.
With the SUPERCOMP‘s patented sliding and supporting device, the pile is no longer laying on the floor with its full weight, meaning its inner core is fully ventilated, vertically from the bottom up (chimney effect). A densification, as with composters without technology or plain compost piles, in which the compost is laying on the ground with its full weight, does not take place here.
Continuous aeration is mainly responsible for the composting process because if the compost heap is well ventilated, the compost creatures can work much faster. With he SUPERCOMP, unpleasant smells stay out and you can get significantly more waste (triple performance) in the same time.
SUPERCOMP composters also don’t need to be moved.
Why? Because the pile is not on the ground with its full weight, making it easy and convenient to remove ready material from the harvest chamber with a shovel. In conventional composting as well as in composting without special technology, you should move the pile for airing it out (=turning the pile over at least once every 14 days, and the more often, the better the crop). Furthermore, it is almost impossible to take ready compost from the bottom of a pile that weighs 100kg. For this to even be possible, you have to dismount the whole pile, rebuild it and pile everything in layers once again. Finally, because this job is tiresome and because of the heavy odours, this is often just not done.
Note: Studies on compost plants with conventional windrow composting showed that even 24 hours (!) after moving the pile, there already are air deficiencies, as the material falls together, becoming dense once more.
