Composting results in the
decomposition of waste and the production of humus. While humus contains
relatively little nutritive value itself, it plays a vital role in the
healthy growth of plants. Humus promotes granulation in clay soil and
reduces lumping and cohesion. Humus improves the water-holding and
air-holding capacity of soil and enhances the supply and availability of
nutrients in the soil.
Bacti-Bio 6000 is a dry blend of naturally occurring scientifically
improved microbes, nutrients and fungus which will accelerate the
composting process for a variety of household and municipal wastes. It has
a unique combination of mesophilic and thermophilic bacteria and molds
consisting of a number of types of non-engineered bacteria and a number of
types of molds. Bacti-Bio 6000 may be applied after plastics and
non-biodegradable polymers have been separated out. Bacti-Bio 6000 is
formulated to digest a variety of household food wastes, paper, yard waste
and most organic municipal waste (leaves, straw, grass, animal waste,
etc.) within 4 to 6 weeks depending on environmental conditions (humidity,
temperature, aeration, etc.). When the waste stream to be composted is
predominantly and consistently one, two or three types of material, a
custom compost product may be formulated to fit the specific types of
These natural microbes co-exist in the environment and are harmless to
humans, animals and plants. They are saprophytic organisms which thrive on
dead organic matter such as tree leaves, grass clippings, municipal, farm
and household waste. They also grow well under most temperature and pH
(5-9) conditions which prevail in composting. During the active composting
process under moist conditions the microbial cultures in Bacti-Bio 6000
produce ample heat, up to and beyond 60 C (140 F), to kill potentially
pathogenic bacteria and reduce the viability of many types of weed seeds
that may be present in the composting materials.
The main benefits of Bacti-Bio 6000 are:
- Reducing mass of composting material in less time (4 - 6 weeks),
thereby saving labor costs and making better use of available land
- Recycling organic waste by converting it into rich compost/humus.
The microbial cultures actively grow at temperatures of 25 to 55 C (77
-131 F) and produce various enzymes necessary for the composting process.
The most important enzymes for this application are:
- Amylase to digest starch.
- Protease to digest proteins.
- Cellulase to break down cellulose.
- Ligninase to break down hardy lignin.
- Xylanase to break down hardy xylam.
- Pectinase to degrade pectin.
- Lipase to degrade animal fat.
- Keratinase to digest wool and hair substrate.
