- About us
We’ve focused intensively on the composting of biogenic waste since our founding. Our close collaboration with scientists, agricultural users and mechanical engineers results in products and solutions that ensure maximum ecological and economic efficiency, when adapted to local conditions.
The goal of composting is to convert organic sub-stances into stable, plant-friendly humus as quickly and odourlessly as possible. Composters try to get a high-quality product with the shortest possible rotting time and lowest possible emissions.
