Uber-Fast Composting: 24-36 hours
While many compost bins can take 6-12 months to break down their contents into usable humus, the BioPodTM Plus eliminates most of your food scraps in as little as 1-2 days using a naturally occurring, beneficial organism traditionally found in many compost and worm bins. The BioPodTM Plus optimizes the instinctual abilities of this species, rapidly creating a live feed more valuable than ordinary compost.
The Future of Recycling: ProtaTM Composting
This enhanced form of composting is referred to as ProtaTM Composting, the method by which valuable molecules, specifically proteins and lipids, are recycled back into living feed in the form of usable biomass. The signature decomposer is Hermetia illucens, a harmless, native arthropod that does not sting, bite or transmit disease. The juvenile form of these robust recyclers is referred to as Soldier Grubs and the device in which they reside is called a Grub Composter.
Valuable Finished Products: 5:1 Production Rate
A working BioPodTM Plus can easily handle the daily food scraps produced by a large family – up to 5 lbs/day. It even digests manure. For every 100 lbs of kitchen scraps you will obtain approx. 5 lbs of friable castings, a few quarts of nutritious compost tea, and approx. 15-20 lbs of self-harvesting Soldier Grubs – which are the ultimate live food for fish, exotic pets, and poultry.
Complements Existing Compost & Worm Bins
The BioPodTM Plus is not designed for yard waste, but it will keep the critters out of your compost bin by diverting all the food scraps away from your active pile. The remaining compost mixture serves as the perfect worm bin food, allowing you to make voluminous quantities of nutritious vermi-castings faster than stand-alone
