This is often also true. Conventional compost piles are frequently laid out incorrectly and also don’t get moved and re-layered enough. This annoying, “stinky” work is often just left out. There is little to no ventilation
here, creating rotting nests that lead to these unpleasant smells. This also makes the compost process falter and take much longer.
Many of our customers were dissatisfied with their methods of composting, where the same problems occurred. The reason is that – mostly – cheap composters are nothing but compost piles “enveloped” in plastic, without any technological inner workings. This also leads to lack of air and the same problems.
That’s why manufacturers of this type of composter recommend moving the pile, like normal compost piles – meaning that the composter needs to be taken apart, the pile has to be moved, then the whole thing needs to be put back together and re-layered. This also has to be done regularly (at least every 14 days) to keep the compost process going.
Note: Studies on compost plants with conventional windrow composting showed that even 24 hours (!) after moving the pile, there already are air deficiencies.
A SUPERCOMP, being in the class of the “no turn”-composters, eliminates this problem. Due to the patented device supporting the compost heap, it is also completely vertically ventilated (chimney effect) and there are no bad smells.
The compost process is therefore greatly speeded up, so that you can fill it up with up to 3 times the amount of waste.
There is no more of that annoying moving of the pile since on the floor there is a divide which holds the pile loosely, so that you can easily remove ready compost from the harvest chamber. If the pile – as with conventional composting – were too compressed, it would make it almost impossible to remove ready compost from the bottom of a pile that weighs 100kg.
