Our Jorney Starts with Solar Powered Compost Machine…
The user-friendly and low-cost solar-powered compost machines are for everybody.
Proper disposal of waste can prevent 60% of waste from entering the landfill
At present the issue of waste disposal is very serious, every person, even if we think about proper disposal of personal waste, we can reduce waste by 60% ourselves.
the process of converting wet Waste into compost can be done in a bin manualy or a unit that on electricity.electrical devices not only consume Electricity but also leaves behind massive carbon footprints. composting is use to save the environment. To eliminate this problem, we started our business from Maharashtra’s Thane district have Invented machine that run on solar.
“An electric compost Machine needs power for the Heating, Mixing and Areation process, community composting unit uses around 1500 units per month, and the bill can come up to Rs 15,000. You are burning the environment and your pocket. Which is why we designed units with solar panels that produce electricity from the sun. Only the shredder machine will require electricity in system, which won’t be more than 2 units per day,”
From a household generating one kilo of wet garbage to generating company 500 kilos, ecofriendly and low-cost machines are for everyone.
“Our 50-kilo capacity unit costs one lakh , Whereas another Machine in market with the same capacity which runs on elctricity costs around four lakhs,”
A unit meant for a family costs anywhere between Rs 8000 to 12000. For a large Machine that can complet community-level composting, the Price depends on the capacity. Their biggest Machine is priced at Rs 9 lakh that treats up to 500 kilos of wet garbage.
Advantageos of this machine is that if there isn’t enough sunlight in your house, the solar panels can be installed on the terrace or any other place where sunlight presents. The smallest machine produces up to 200 watts of energy, whereas a 500-kilo system can generate 1kilowatts that can be used for composting.
Another advantage of the system is that it is maintenance-free and odourless during use .
“ a 50-kilo machine that treats garbage of nearly 100 flats. you have to appoint only one person who does the entire process in a hassle-free manner. It is very simple and easy-to-use. you can use the freshly made compost in your gardens,”
Solar Compost Machine Sysyem Works:
Here’s a 3-step process:
1. Shredder : Deposit the wet garbage, including vegetable waste, peels, eggshells, coffee/tea powder, food waste, and so on in the shredder. shredder will shred the waste into tiny pieces in shredder provided with system.
2. Solar Compost Machine: Transfer the pieces to a heated chamber for mixing. Here waste is adequately mixed with browns like dry leaves, cocopeat or sawdust as carbon source to remove moisture and prevent foul odour. Keep the mix inside the chamber for six days. The mixture is heated to a temperature of 50-60 degree celsius by the use of solar-powered machine.
3. Curring section: Transfer the newly made compost to a storage rack and keep it for 3-4 days for cooling.
How it all started
At the time, Rutvick was completing a sustainability course from the Tata Institute of Social Sciences in mumbai, and I was working for a private firm that daels with waste management at pune.
“We were on our bikes looking at the mound of rubbish dumped on the dumping ground. This was a trigger for both of us. Mountains are a symbol of beauty, not waste. We decided to base our knowledge on the use and design of low cost composting equipment on sustainability and work experience, ”he said.
“This eye-opening incident forced us to find a way to dispose of the waste at the source, and in the end we decided to build a composting machine as it is more possible to treat wet waste than to recycle dry waste.”
We worked hard to develop a model that was different from the traditional machines that already existed in the market. In parallel, they conducted surveys with electric composting units in housing organizations to understand needs and errors.
“We found two common problems, high electricity bills and heavy maintenance. So, we know our option should be greener and less expensive, “he said.
We studied the research journal and watched numerous videos. When we were hitting the last stage, we came across the technology of solar dryer which can be integrated into the composting machine.
Integrating technology was not an easy task. We did many experiments and tests before cracking the formula. During this time, we faced many challenges and limitations.
“We spent about one lakh to realize that the waste storage capacity for the first prototype is very low. We installed waste processing units free of charge in our neighboring building. ”
Once our final prototype was successful, it was successfully tested in several buildings in Thane and Mumbai.
In 2017, we registered our company ‘Klimrus Sustainable Solution Pvt Ltd’. So far we have sold 70 machines to individual households, housing societies, hostels, hotels and companies including Pune-based Mondelez International, which manufactures the beloved Cadbury range of chocolates.
Making Compost in Less Than 10 Days
for compact designes we also provide with good machine with manual shredder and atrractive machines.
“We have created two compartments inside the unit for a continuous cycle; If one is filled, you can continue the process in the other. The entire solar-run process takes around ten days. In a 100-kilo unit, you will have 30 kilos of nutrient-rich organic compost,”
In a country like India, which generates 62 million tonnes of waste every year, treating garbage at source is the first step to reduce this massive generation. Composting is an easy way you can start with, and green units developed by us can effectively help curb the waste.
So basically make compost by its own…or contact for more guidance, we cleare every daubts regarding waste disposal. Comment any suggestion if you have for our better success.
