When collecting biological waste in a household (in a separate container, preferably in a purpose-made sustainable compost container
), we want to avoid rotting, of course, which is usually the cause of an unpleasant odour. We can prevent it by regularly sprinkling a powder containing useful microorganisms
into the waste. This completely natural and century-old powder, known today as bokashi or biogenous powder, triggers the fermentation process. It occurs at room temperature, in an enclosed container and without spreading any odour. After just 14 days, we can deposit the fermented mixture onto the compost heap, where the decomposition process will continue, or we can simply bury it into the soil. The mixture produced this way will become first-rate compost in just 2 weeks, while the classic composting process usually takes 6 months.
